On Friday, March 30, 2007 “Online Backup” & Storage & Monday, March 12, 2007 “Need Extra Storage Space” I talked about X-Drive, a free online storage service. Well on January 12, 2009, AOL will permanently close the Xdrive Online Storage Service. If you signed up for it and haven’t already done so you can download everything as a ZIP file.
Mozy is still a good backup service with 2 gig free, but I liked X-Drive as a place to access files when I’m away from home. Box.net http://www.box.net is a good storage place but there is only 1 gig free and with some file size & bandwidth limits. Live SkyDrive http://skydrive.live.com is another one I like as much as X-Drive, SkyDrive has 5 gig free & with larger file size limits than box.net (wonderful for sharing files too big to email).
