Hmm aren't you all at all concerned about 'the man' reading all your data? :whistle:

Nope. I'd rather she/he read it than me lose it all by spilling tea on my laptop (as happened in the past). I suspect they could (and can/have) whether or not I use cloud storage...

Don't worry - I've heavily encrypted the pictures of you and Lagers hot-tub session....

Yes but I'm an academic not a politician. :P interesting concept though - apparently each machine has unique characteristics so if a types memo is copied they can tell where it came from...

Only threw it in the ring as I'd not heard of it and someone on another forum was considering it (value seems good).

meh.

Can't say I get particularly excited about any cloud storage myself.

Indeedy.. I've still got 80% of my 1TB of onedrive empty (I even populated it with MrsTT's extensive kitten and hen do photo collection..)

I'll admit to having been fairly excited about Dropbox at times, just because it's so damn good.

Anyone got any recent recommendations regarding online backup services? Been using Zovo for a couple of years for 20 a year but they were always a bit of a fly by night reseller, they sent me an email with a invoice to renew but there is now obvious way on the email or website to pay them! (other than signing up as a new customer). They aren't responding to emails so tempted to ditch them and use someone a bit more established.

Backblaze looks good for not much more ($50/35 per year). Also I have access to an unlimited Google Drive so might have a play with Google Sync and that, anyone doing similar?

Daplie your own personal cloud


Although it doesn't solve the problem of off-site backup storage and is really just a home NAS which has been configured to allow you to access it remotely.

My wife has a question that I have no idea about but we reckon the good folk of UKB will have the knowledge. Here it is:
"I have 8GB of files in dropbox but want to transfer them to Onedrive. I've signed up for the 1.99/month Onedrive subscription for 100Gb of cloud storage which should be more than enough but I'd like to know the easiest way to transfer files from dropbox to Onedrive? And is there a method I definitely SHOULDN'T use?!"

Easiest way would just be to have a machine that's signed in to both the old dropbox account and the new onedrive account then copy and paste from the dropbox folder to the onedrive folder. The limiting factor will be upload speed to onedrive, if you're in a rush you could take your laptop somewhere with a fast internet connection.

Perfect, thanks Remus. That's what she'd suspected but just wanted to check she wasn't missing something obvious.
