    Most of my music and movies are on internal hard drives, backed up to some more local hard drives via Crashplan. Most of my photos are on myspace and facebook. All of my mail is on Gmail backed up local via Thunderbird. Some of my movies and music are online on VPS, and some more mp3 and vids on the Wuala cloud (traded for 200GB storage by sharing local space and bandwidth)

    Most of my data backedup on external drive. Plus I keep an additional backup of VERY important file online.

    While I love the idea of being able to access my data from everywhere, I am still cautious as to what happens to my data if a service goes belly up.

    I use a combination of my 2 WD HDDS - internal 160GB and 250GB external - and SkyDrive which provides 25GB free storage. I'm also thinking of buying WD 1TB external HDD next year.
