Is your data safe? If your like most… not as safe as it should be. I have used a variety of data storage/backup over the past few years. CDs, flashdrives, and web-based.
Currently I use a web-based backup service that I pay a monthly fee for. I have used the same service for about two years. It comes in extremely handy when I reformat and need to reload my data, also when I am away and need to grab a stored document. I usually purchase a new computer every year or two, and the transfer of data is a breeze.
I have a slr digital camera. The stored images can be fairly large, 5-10 mg each. My photos, like most, linger on my computer and rarely find a frame. I have years of photos, organized by year and month, that I want in a safe place.
Unfortunately, as my storage needs are growing, I am finding the current service I use to be fairly costly. Coming in at about 25$ a month! Yikes… time to check out some other options! While still leaning toward the safety of web-based storage… I may consider a portable storage options. Time for some homework! That is going to be my project of the week! What do you use?
