Wuala/Online Storage

For the average reader, I’d say don’t try this for now.  I do actually have a Norton Ghost type backup in the wings if it truly gets serious.  It is still in alpha stage, so I’m not providing links.

 

www.mail.com is one of the lesser-known online mailbox offerings, that’s been around since the days of Compuserve.  The download seems quite harmless, and the load of spam that used to come with my old address (no longer available because of suffix) doesn’t now, which probably means better AI type screening.

    If you are looking for an online storage solution that is much more developed, try ElephantDrive. I will refrain from providing a link, since it is pretty easy to find and it seems like you don’t want to publish links until you’ve vetted a site/service yourself.

    Just my $.02.

    On the subject of file backup, sharing and storage …

    Online backup is becoming common these days. It is estimated that 70-75% of all PC’s will be connected to online backup services with in the next decade.

    Thousands of online backup companies exist, from one guy operating in his apartment to fortune 500 companies.

    Choosing the best online backup company will be very confusing and difficult. One website I find very helpful in making a decision to pick an online backup company is:

    http://www.BackupReview.info

    This site lists more than 400 online backup companies in its directory and ranks the top 25 on a monthly basis.

    Sorry. One thing I should have included is the fact that I have found (for about 20 years–I won’t admit to more right now) ZDNet [Ziff-Davis and its publications] a consistently reliable source of information. For what? practically everything, although I wouldn’t rely on John Dvorak for hard information. I think I ticked somebody off…I have been dropped off their mailing list.
