The sad part is my cute little Toshiba portable is speaking bad words as of late and I can't afford the $75+ USD to get another. A couple months ago my old clunker external just gave up with not even as much as a good-bye. So, I'm soon to be without my 500GB Toshiba and have nothing to replace the 500GB WD that I used to mirror it with. So, brilliant me has the idea to perhaps use some type of online service. I have one that promises 500GB fro free. It's an FTP type of setup. Some of those slick backup types of services don't even consider 500GB - most they got is 100GB. There is one, well recommended, service that does 500GB but you have to pay for a year at a time.
Anyone got some suggestions for 500GB storage service? For cheep? I'm thinking that buying a new hard drive might cost less, but then that leaves out the reason of safety in case dropped or fire or something.
