HardriveBack-up
« on: January 25, 2008, 12:06:41 AM »
Hey everyone,
So, could someone refer me to a site that I can upload documents to for free, as to back them up?
I suppose a back-up hardrive would be better, but anyway.

Thanks,

mpuvdd

hmm...yes i would say an external hard drive would be more reliable if you want more space. how much space do you need?

Problem with some of the free online back up sites is that the offer relatively little space AND they go out of business quickly and then the website is gone! Its not reliable, back up on a flash drive
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

My suggestion is to use gmail. I currently have an allowed space of just over 6300MB. Just send an email to yourself with the files as an attachment. Works well for me.

You can use Gmail or Windows live skydrive, one of the new windows live stuff that MS is doing
For gmail, you can also use the gmail drive extension, which lets you use gmail as a virtual folder in explorer
