Cloud Services and Backing up Digital Materials

Hey guys, any recommendation for cloud services?

I've had computers die on me in the past, and I have decided to finally copy all of my various chunks of data and put them somewhere. But, I am unsure what is the best Cloud service to use. Or, if there is even any real difference.

I do know that I am not really confident in Microsoft's One Drive.

Besides that, any other advice about backing up one's digital stuff? I have a few external hard drives. I have other bits of stuff spread around on different computer in case something happens.

How much are you looking to backup?

Google Drive works fairly well for me.

That's a good question... Not quite sure exactly how much. Mostly it is pdfs of books, a minor amount of music, home videos and pictures, and Word documents.

I use Google Drive, particularly at work where all our stuff is Google based. I think you get like 10 or 15GB with free accounts, so that works for most people. The sync client works fairly well and can do it two ways (backup parts of your computer while syncing Drive content to your computer).

We also have access to something called File Stream which maps your Drive as a network drive (meaning all access is realtime rather than waiting for syncs to occur). I know it's not in the free one; I don't know what level of membership you have to be to access it (but it's possible the basic paid plan does it).

And maybe regularly backing up to another external HDD or two (depending on how important it is) isn't a bad idea. Sometimes you can make perfect contingency plans for everything with data and still lose everything.

I just use Google Drive. It's as secure as your Google account is.
