I hope to get some clarification on this whole backup/cloud syncing thing. I am very confused as to how the dropbox/icloud/onedrive/ and other backup tools work.
Here is what I want to be able to do:
- I have 700 gb that I want to store somewhere as a backup in the cloud - and be able to delete from my local computer.
How should I go about doing this?
Should I select individual files to backup or store?
Some of the backup solutions say they will backup my entire hard drive (Carbonite, Crashdrive, etc.), but what happens when I delete it from my local machine? Does it delete it from these services as well?
Can someone please provide some guidance on how this process works?
