Good Morning,

 

Does anybody have any advice for me on cloud storage?

 

I am after a service that allows you to upload into remote storage, but will keep it there even if it is removed from my computer. I have had drop box for this past year and when a hard drive died it removed those items off the cloud and then didn't have access to the information that I wanted. I have document, music (my legal cd collection). some movies but the main items I'm wanting to preserve is my photos.

 

My other alternative is to keep buying bigger external hard drives which does become expensive.

(I have 2 x 6TB Lacie HDD now)

 

I'm pretty new to all this. Any advice would be welcome.

 

Regards

 

Randall

If it where me I'd go with external HDD no upkeep cost and if the internet goes down you have them still to hand. The only down side is if you want them every where you'll have to take them with you. I would also work out how much a hdd cost and how much it will cost long term to store your data.

But I would go for more HDD. If i back stuff up I always back up stuff I don't want to lose twice to on different hdds so if one fails you still have the data.

Thanks so much for your advice. We have started to use backblaze but it says that we need a year to back everything up haha
