After my post about Windows SkyDrive, I received a comment which led me to this list of the Best free online storage and backup services. It looks like there are quite a few options out there if you are looking for online storage.
I browsed through the list and ended up signing up for the unlimited file storage at MyBloop.com. I downloaded and installed their uploader, but it doesn’t seem to work for me. However, the online flash uploader works really well, just browse to and select the files you want to upload. You can select multiple files at once, none of that browsing to and selecting one file at a time.
MyBloop claims that you can store as many files as you want for as long as you want. Your files will never be deleted unless you delete them. They ask that if you upload back-ups of copyrighted files, like music and movies, that you mark them as private and don’t share them. You can create playlists with your music files and embed them on your website or blog, so people can listen, but they can’t download.
You can upload any files, except the ones they consider a ‘security risk’. For whatever reason, html files fall under that category, so I haven’t been able to back up some web pages I wanted store – so I uploaded those to SkyDrive. It looks like I am going to have to use multiple sites to store my files. Back to the list!
