3 sure things in life are death, taxes & hard drive crashes. Xdrive http://www.xdrive.com/ is an online storage service offering 5 Meg of free storage. There are a lot of free photo storage services out there but what I like about this is you can store other files.
Here are some things you can do with Xdrive:
- Better secure your important files - photos, video, music, and more.
- Keep your digital photos in full resolution.
- Prevent bounced e-mail - share very large files without a problem.
- Schedule Automatic Backups of your important files.
- Share folders with others for just viewing or to work collaboratively.
- Access your files anytime through any web connection.
- Organize, edit and stream music playlists through any Web connected PC.
"Xdrive Desktop" acts as an auto backup of certain folders on your hard drive, but I found it slow as tar. The slide show you can add music & email an invitation out to people to view it, myself I don't like giving emails of friends to free services. The things I really like about this service is backing up your bookmarks. You can also upload groups of files or folders & download them just as easily. Downloads are grouped together as a ZIP file so you will need to uncompress them when done.
Should you find 5 Gig just isn't enough try putting your pictures on AOL Pictures http://pictures.aol.com, that is unlimited storage & can be accessed from Xdrive.
One last piece of advice locks & security only keep honest people honest, put confidential information online at you own risk.
