Online hard disk storage

Can anyone recommend a decent online storage place.

Just had to reformat my hard drive for the umpteenth time over the last 3 years and lost some folders of stuff as usual.

I don't need anything to fancy, up to 2 gigs of space should be easily enough.

Many thanks

I personally prefer to keep my stuff under my own control with ext usb hd, this morning my internet connection went down for an hour, how would I have accessed my backed up data if stored on line?

You can buy a 2Gb memory stick for around £12. Much better and quicker.

If you insist upon online storage xDrive offers up to 5Gb of storage. This used to be a paid for service but is now free.

I would agree with Gandalf though that a USB key is more useful, and faster at reading/writing data.

Another consideration for me would be the tme taken to upload my data. Unless paying for Broadbands with a good upload speed, you could be online for hours just uploading a quite modest amaount of data. Get a Usb stick or and external HDD.

Not if you leave it plugged into your machine as I suspect most people will. You can't beat online backup for giving you disaster recovery capability - if your house burns down your data is safe :)
