What is the best way to backup my photos in the cloud from Windows 8?
Question by Krzysztof Bu?ko /

I have a lot of photos (about 25GB) I have been taking for years. I would like to organize them and have them backup in the cloud (my disks like to crash, and data recovery is expensive). It would be great if there is free solution, I’m currently using Windows 8.

Can anyone suggest a good, free service? If not free, then cheap!

    If you want to keep your photos resolution but upload/download it in faster connection then I think Dropbox is the best solution. Otherwise, Box is cool too, since they are giving away free 50GB space now till end of Dec. Box also adapts Dripbox sync system by adding sync folders on your PC.

    If you like to blog (like me), I recommend Minus http://minus.com. They gives 50GB storage to upload photos & music files only. It has option to share your photos in html code which is neat.

    Loads of these, i like Dropbox, which is faster and easier than Skydrive or google drive

  • hades same

    skydriver is very good as both are recommended dropbox

    Skydrive used to give 25gb space now it gives 7, Check how much space do you have.
    Else I have a simple solution. Use Picasa to upload all your photos to Picasa web albums. But make sure you change the default upload setting to Medium (1024) This way you can upload any Number of photos to Picasa for free. Or you can use Google+ to upload all the photos. There is a similar way with SkyDrive but it will consume less space. Skydrive if you have 25gb space else Picasa. Got few other alternatives.

      I'didn't know I can upload any number of photos to picasa :) Thanks for this wonderfull news ;) I have made Skydrive lately so i have only 7GB.

    Have you considered moving all your data to Amazon Glacier Cloud? Very affordable solution to upload TBs of data, the solution am using Zoolz is costing me 3$/100GB a month and yes it is compatible with Windows 8.

    I can assure all will be heading to use the glacier technology in no time, worth checking out.

    You should use SugarSync that in the new version beta 2 introduced new useful functions and improvements than the old version 1. The free space is 5 gb and you can arrive up to 32 gb.

    Bitcasa might be a best solution for you with infinite storage solution.It has recently launched Windows 8 client.

    Bitcasa brings limitless cloud storage to Android and Windows 8 today, iOS in January -


    • Krzysztof Bu?ko

      from early 2013 Bitcasa will be free up to 10 GB but it's quite much until i'll find enough firends to get them as referrals in Dropbox ;)
