Best online storage services that are free

Backing up data is a very critical part of your day to day computer life. To keep your files secure and safe from data crashes you should regularly back up your data.

But how long can you sustain buying expensive backup devices and medias to keep your data safe. Backing up data is a costly affair if you have a lot of data to backup.

This is where online storage services come into the picture using which you can easily backup and access your data from anywhere because it is available online. Gmail Drive is still no where in sight and Microsoft folders disappeared as quickly it appeared.

You can also use Gmail as a backup device for storing your files, that’s around 3 GB of storage space and there is no limit to the number of emails you can create so 3GB multiplied by 10 accounts could get you upto 30GB of space. The only problem is that Gmail has a 10 GB 20 GB attachment limit so you can upload more than that at a time.

Online storage services provide you with free space of around 1 GB and more. I recommend you use the online storage services for backups as most of these are free and provide you with free space to store you data. I had written a post around a year ago which highlighted few free online storage services.

Here is another round up of online storage services that are free to use and provide you with at least 1GB of space.
