|Only one recommendation - - don't encrypt with proprietary software!|
You'll live to regret it when you need the backup only to find that you can't decrypt it (happens all the time, just read the various forums and you'll see).
Zip it up with a password using 7-Zip. That never fails to unzip, I use it all the time to back up sensitive data and unlike encryption software it's not proprietary, it just uses standard zip format.
Don't back it up using online storage either. Make three identical backups on three separate hard drives, then keep them under lock and key out of sight, no need to even keep it password-protected if you do that.
Online storage is not to be trusted, not in my book. The company could abort it's storage service at any time, or even go bust.
You are too trusting of online storage, it's not the answer.
