    ...so I don't have to worry about backing up my files and access my files from anywhere with Internet access?

    Also, the site should be reliable in terms of being around for 20 years from now.

    Thanks.

    box.net is good!

    you can:
    Upload up to 1 gig (catch is file cant be larger than 10 MB, then you gotta pay some moneyz)
    Easily pull up files, search, organize into folders
    You can play music files if loaded
    I think its pretty good for 1 gig :)

    1- Get a gmail account [ pretty easy at the moment]
    2- Wait until you get invites [ I think you automatically get invite, like 35]
    3- Invite yourself as much as you want.

    Result : 2.7 Go times the number of time you invited yourself.

    Yeah, we Americans like our non-standard measurements.

    I'm sure you knew that 1 byte = 8 bits, but did you know that 4 bits = 1 nibble? I'm dead serious.

    http://www.packratus.com It's remote backup and disaster recovery. There's a free triel. We just signed Davidson Hotels to a national deal.

    Yes :bigthumb: I am in Computer Science hehe, I deal with that kind of stuff everyday !

    Back on the subject though, I don't know if many gmail accounts work. I never had a lot of data to store but I still keep a lot on my gmail account. [something like 1.3 GB]
