cloud backup

Today, there are many online backup options to choose from. If you're not too tech savvy, here are our recommendations. (Keep in mind that free advice is worth every penny you paid!).

If You Have Gmail

If you have an @gmail.com email account, the obvious choice is using Google Drive, and taking advantage of their FREE 5 GB of cloud (aka online) storage. If 5 GB of storage is not enough, you can pay for more at a very reasonable price. The nice thing with this is that you can sync-up and access your files, photos, movies, videos, etc. from anywhere. You can also access your stuff using a computer, tablet PC, smartphone or even a TV/bluray app. So if you travel to visit family or friends, just login to your account from their place and download your stuff for them to see.




If You Have Hotmail

If you have an @hotmail.com or an @live.com email address, you might want to take advantage of Microsoft's FREE 7 GB SkyDrive cloud storage.




If You Have Apple

For the Apple folks, iCloud may be what you're looking for. You can backup all your data using your iMac, iPad, iPhone, etc.
