This seems to be a very good price for 200gb.

Have not found anything cheaper.

Google is £1.59 per month for 100gb.

I don't know about recently but service wise it's meant to be pretty poor.

A lot of people used to moan about very slow traffic speeds etc.

I would rather go with Google/iCloud etc. There platform is much larger, more reliable, feature rich and less likely to disappear.

Do you know if there is anything out there which offers 200gb for a little more but is a bit more well know? I am looking for something but struggling

I think Google is the nearest and probably least likely to fail/go out of business/change drastically - so that's what I'd go for.

Wish google would offer 200gb instead of 100gb then to 1tb

I can think of a few cloud storage providers but I think you are going to stuggle to get 200GB for 15/yr.

Whats the nearest in money with a solid service and app/pc support?

there's plenty of articles around about cloud storage services; a lot of it depends on what you want. I recommend spending half an hour doing research. for example, Dropbox is one of the few that offers a windows phone app , Linux support, Blackberry but it costs a bit. Alternatively, security might be your thing. Or privacy - Google use your data quite a lot for example.

what Robertoegg says, decide what you want in terms of availablity, app support, privacy.etc and how much effort you want the provider to make at retaining the data. Places like google.etc prob have redundent backups, smaller providers may not unless you pay for it (Because ultimately it costs money)

Will these be around in 2-3 years? What happens to your data if they are not?

​lol this Dixon's carphone your talking about they will be around for more than 3 years

The service used to provide these backup is Livedrive.

More info here on their service Livedrive

If you can afford the bandwidth to upload on your broadband account then these services are good value for money.

Are live drive good?

do you have Amazon Prime? it's unlimited I think during the whole membership, I'm literally backing up 280gb of photos and home videos onto it now.

Isn't one drive offer a good deal with 365 student package

If they are using the consumer version of Onedrive and not the Business version then yes.

Consumer version was built to be a cloud storage platform, Bussiness version appears to be sharepoint shoehorned into doing something it wasn't really designed for.

Can you get an extended warranty for it?

It's certainly unlimited for photos. I don't know if video is included in the limit, but it seems to be working for you so perhaps it is.

Been using this for 4 years it has never skipped a beat. and no. do not work for them.

for online backup I had livedrive since 2011, few years back i tried a restore some files even tho they had reported to be uploaded they came down 0Kb! luckily I had backed it up to external storage so nothing was lost.

Just moved to crashplan bit cheaper better features but slower upload.

Use both Dropbox and Onedrive for various things - have tried cheap / free providers in the past and never been impressed. Of the two, Onedrive is the one I'd go for - have an Office 365 subscription that costs £7.99 a month (£96 a year), and for that you get five Office licenses, with each license getting its own 1TB Onedrive. If you can find a couple of people to go in with you then it could be an alternative, plus you get an Office license each

@stb30 I have the pro account.. unlimited storage and briefcase which s the best bit.

Go on ebay buy a office 365 personal license for less than 30 quid. That's a year of office for one user plus 1tb Onedrive plus Skype time.

Actually, you are right. I think there is a quota on the file size. My photos are backed up ok, but vidoes (bigger than 1gb) are failing. :(.

And how does that work for you when your house goes up in smoke taking your computer and your "backup" with it?

It's not a backup if one event can wipe it out along with the original.

hubiC is good it is OVH's take at backup/cloud storage.You start with 25GB, get 5GB per refferal (up to 50GB). If you pay you get 100GB for 1€ per month or 10€ per year. Or you can get 10TB for 5€ per month or 50€ per year.

The only downside I've found is that once you've upgraded your account to pay you CANNOT downgrade.

200gb worth???

If you want to backup photos (which don't take up much space), just use Google Drive (approx 4,000 16MP photos) or Microsoft One Drive etc.

Nobody is saying you need to use the full 200GB!
My 80+ year old mother is hardly a pro photographer and doesn't even own an SLR and only shoots JPEGs but she still has about 70GB of photos.

Wow never realised so many options, thank everyone!

70gb? That's got to be about 16,000+ photos. Are you sure that she simply hasn't figured out how to use 'delete' on her computer? X)

If only that was her only IT support issue!
She's currently confused as to why a scan of a document which is naturally saved as a jpeg needs to be treated as a photo and not a document.

I have around 60k photos that I would call "treasured", it's quite easy to get to that level if you like photography especially with a DSLR. Family and friends weddings alone can be 1500 each let alone documenting the kids growing up

adamwilko007

No RAW and only a small number of short 720p video clips so almost all JPEGs.
