Around 50GB. Any ideas where I can back it up cheaply or for free?
Amazon AWS is pretty good but not as easy to use as say Box.net or Adrive.com
ya right . The best option is local external HDD.
Coz 15$ per month for rest of my life is not a good idea . [box net pricing]
Hello, if you are an iOS user you can get it for free when taking advantage of the following offer:
Actually if you have more than one windows Live ID like for example more than one of the following email services, hotmail, msn, live and also messenger and xbox, you can store that with the use of skydrive. Only thing with this service is that there are a lot of limitations with regard to files allowed to be stored. This service is good as long as your Live ID services are active.
With dropbox you can get that amount by 9.99$ a month:
Also, you can use carbonite with unlimited storage for a year for 42 pounds:
Good luck! 50 Gigabytes is a lot of data to store for millions of users. If you store your data, you want the host to be reliable (not that giving gigabytes of free storage space to millions of users isn't a sound business plan) and secured. Don't half ass your backup plan.
My main choice of backup is still an external hard drive. You can also store your data on the cloud with services such as Mozy and Carbonite.
You can consider mediafire as an exception when you are listing free unlimited storage providing services that are not reliable.
It has https.
the drawback is 200mb per file limit, you can split and upload bigger files.
200 mb limit can be increased to 4 gb and 10 GB with paid account which will not remove your inactive account.
If you are a free user you will have to use your account at least once in a month, else they may delete it.
Symform apparently gives more, if interested contacted them to see the catch up.
You can go for
unlimited uploads for free.
easy to upload.
bulk download facility.
folders, tags and search facility.
never heard about an expired mediafire account.
So I guess it is for life time.
you can secure documents using passwords.
