I have to get a backup solution. I've lost pictures in the past and a concerned it could happen again. My dad has Carbonite and it took over a month to get his backup downloaded so I'm not that interested in that. My husband did some research and came up with Crashplan as a good cloud backup. Like other backup solutions, it's just that, a backup, not a cloud file access solution. I did find that I could get 1TB of space from Windows OneDrive if I purchased Office 365 for 6.99/month. But I don't really need office 365 .
Anyone have any experience with Crashplan?
Second. Storage. I'm a digital pack rat. I keep terrible photos (maybe I'm just lazy about deleting them) and every digital scrap product I've ever downloaded, free or purchased. This is stupid, I realize, but I can't seem to give it up. As a result of this my data hard drive is getting pretty full. Because a laptop is my computer, I can't get a bigger than 750GB for anything close to a reasonable price. Hubby says it will be 400ish dollars.
On top of that, I don't have a place to put an EHD near my laptop for routine scrapping work and delays in access annoy me, like when I have to wifi access our server to check out my husband's photos for scrapping duty.
What do other packrats do for storage?
