    Re: Online Storage

    Farmer,
    I don't know which has the largest storage offering but to my own feelings which says that I just don't trust storing my data in an on line storage location.

    Others may feel the opposite but I would rather do my own storage. Just how secure are these free locations?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    GMail currently offers about 2700 MB (2.65 GB) of storage. This is fine for non-critical, non-sensitive e-mails with their attachments, but I wouldn't want to use it for critical and/or sensitive data.

    Searching Google for free online storage or free online upload or similar search terms yields lots of hits. I don't know which of those are dependable.

    It is not an e-mail service but check out the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Pando. It is in beta but allows you to send and receive files of almost any size. Note: the sender and receiver must both have software installed. There is a link to download the software in the e-mail the receiver sees. It is a small (about 2MB) download.
