Project of the week; Data storage/backup

datastorageIs 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?
