Favorite cloud storage?
« on: March 23, 2018, 11:01:30 PM »
I'm updating a couple of computers and realizing it would be useful to have a cloud-based backup solution.  Sharing files across my devices would be much easier, in addition to the obvious disaster recovery benefits. 

I'm already in the Google landscape and their offer of 1TB of storage for $9.99 per month seems reasonable.  Just curious what others are using and what pros/cons I might not be considering.

I'm using Backblaze, which is $5 per month per computer (including attached external drives) for unlimited data. Doesn't help with sharing files across devices, but it works great for backup and recovery.

Actually just noticed that Backblaze offers a sharing service, B2, for an additional cost ($0.005/GB/month for storage, $0.01/GB for downloads). I haven't tried it myself, so can't vouch for how well it works.

I've been using DropBox for a few years now.  I like it a lot, but its not a real back-up solution.  Its just a way to store and share lots of data.  I do like that I can set it to save the pix from my phone automatically, and that I have a copy on a physical drive here at home and not just out there on a cloud.

I also started using BackBlaze a couple of months ago.  Seems fine.  My purpose is to back up my PH FLAC collection, and (knock on wood) I haven't had to use it yet.

I will return your DATs/Tapes/MDs.  I'll also provide Master FLAC files via DropBox.  PM me for details.

This!  I have to explain to clients all the time that dropbox, drive etc are not true backups!  Reason number one being ransomware.  If you are hit and your cloud files are infected you have to restore old versions file by file.  No way to restore all at once.  With a true cloud backup you can restore all files from previous versions.
