Thanks, Will.  I started to suggest something similar.....There are 2TB portable hard drives available for $100.  (  Not sure how much data you need to back up, but those that I use hold 7 years of photos and all my art work, all of My Docs, and a cloned C:/ drive.  I keep one with me and one in a safe-deposit box at our local bank and rotate them periodically.

There's nothing wrong with online storage other than it takes a gajillion hours to upload.  I can back up a month's worth of photos and docs and whatever in less than an hour.  Traveling and need access to your files?  These hard drive are about the size of a smart phone, and you can continue to load data to them from your laptop when traveling.  No problems either if one is traveling to a spot with no internet connection.

Just my 0.015 euros,

How about a fireproof safe with your own extra hard drive? Harder to hack and more environmentally friendly.

Hi All!

Does anyone have any updates on new Cloud Storage Services? 

Does Dropbox remain one of the top preferences?


With Fire Season upon us, I am motivated to purchase some serious space. I have a free Dropbox now. But there may be other good choices.


Very much appreciated,
