What’s roomy, safe, and cheap in cloud storage?

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member JSwanson wants to know whom to trust in the cloud with his and his family’s digital files.

He’d like a lot of space, he wants an established company offering it, he wants uploads to move smartly — but he’s also minding his budget. In the Maintenance forum, fellow members recommend their favorites and also give some advice.
