I'd suggest an external hard drive - you can get a good one for $100 or less.

As for web storage, I will leave that to other experts but I don't anticipate you can store a lot of data for free... (I may be wrong)

http://gizmodo.com/5828035/the-best-way ... -the-cloud here's review about a few different cloud storage's out of all of them Google look's to be the best. im my own option it's the most trusted name also, not that you spend a year uploading 170gb only to find out the company is going under, but i agree with Puppetmaster an external hdd not hooked up with all the data on it some place (and pass-worded with Truecrypt ) at a friends, family or locker at work does the job just as well IMO

I use megaupload.com right now they have a very good deal on for premium membership it might be worth you taking a look at but some advise I've had no end of trouble using there standalone file manager it just keeps crashing and dropping out so I would steer clear of it there's no actual need to use it any as way you can upload/down load directly from the main web site it's self with no hassle.

I sincerly hope you didn't go that route. And thev, I hope you made a backup to a local device ^_^

Cloud storage is a viable option, however for peace of mind (and value for money) you'd be better off backing up your data to an external device, sealing it, and burying it in a remote location... XD I'm sure some banks offer storage space for items, so perhaps you could look into that?

i use megaupload but we know site been closed, this unfortunate i use trucrypt to and have back up in external drive as suggested by Lord Hypno. pity lot of bandwidth wasted with mega that is life such shame when site used for legit reasons, that money paid is lost. i thought of paying life time membership happy i not now :/ i will give time things settle then look in it again.
