Spideroak has a promo until the end of march, $120/yr unlimited.

Their software is pretty awesome too for backing up and it works on alot of devices!

Are people still scared of using the cloud for backups? Just curious, having the debate with someone at the moment who would prefer to buy/manage 4x4tb hard drives (2x in mirror, then 2x in an offsite rotation) than go cloud (worried about initial seed). Ironically, cloud isn't going anywhere so once the initial seeding pain is done, its a piece of cake to maintain.

For home users, I really cant recommend Office 365 Home more. $12AUD/mth for office applications and 1tb of storage for up to 5 family members (5tb of total storage) is really difficult to go past.

$15 for office HUP + $55/yr for unlimited storage on crashplan is even better... ;)

i am not scared of the cloud, but it is a PITA with seeding/recovery times and i don't trust it 100%.... maybe 98%, with the 2% only being a fear that a provider will go out of business. so i keep a local backup in addition to the cloud backup. if the local backup was a tedious task i probably wouldn't do it, but it is easy and feels worthwhile.

Agree with seeding times (recovery not so much). Interesting about you not trusting it 100%, this is the sort of thing I was interested in. If the 2% is someone like Microsoft or Amazon, why are you worried about them going out of business?

I still have concerns over the resiliency of a backup, but in reality it's no difference whether its on a hard drive, tape, in the cloud, or printed out any put under my mattress. They all are susceptible to failure/user error, it comes down to regular testing the recovery procedure with random samples, and mitigating against the failure of one type of technology (by having backups on two types of media/technology).

i suppose the chances of microsoft going broke are pretty slim, but maybe they decide to discontinue their cloud storage business because it's not profitable enough, or access to it becomes horribly slow, or something else that sucks. i think it is very unlikely - 98% chance it won't happen - but i figure if it is easy to setup a local copy then i may as well.

I run everything from dropbox (I know there may be better and cheaper but I have been using it since it was launched and I am happy with them). I have all my files, in car movies, music etc sitting on there. The only thing that is not on there is my TV/Movies - as my theory is i can just redownload them if i lose them. I love cloud storage. I did run manual local backups, but now I can not be bothered with it... it is as cheap to by cloud space as it is to buy HDD's

Both my and Moo's phones are completely synced with iCloud. When we upgraded to the iPhone6... punched in usernames and went to bed. Woke up in the morning, everything was sweet - All messages, photos the lot :)

I reimaged my laptop about 2 months ago... did not even think about backing anything up. Installed dropbox and 24 hours later I had everything back on my PC where is was before. :)

For the amount of storage that i use, I pay for both services and would not be without them.

I love dropbox, their interface is the best out there. Price wise they are a bit behind the 8 ball these days, but their produce is that mature it makes up for it.

I had an interesting conversation with someone today about Microsoft cloud, and his thoughts are that its no difference to cisco going bust and being left with a whole heap of unsupported hardware. His point being that its unlikely to happen ;)

For what I use... it is fine. Don't normally need something that is older than 10 versions ago.

But I may be different to other users

Dropbox version history is only 30 days unless you're on pro or business.

Yep.... and for me is is 365 days as i am on a Pro account.

If I lose a file and don't realize it for a year... i more than likely did not need it :)

No reason not to backup your photos to the cloud now. Amazon have announced 'unlimited photo' storage for $11.99 USD a year ($1/mth).

Amazon storage is the same back end used by dropbox if you are concerned about reliability. Apps available for mobile, pc, etc.

Just finished moving my backups from Amazon Glacier to Microsoft Onedrive. It's cheaper, and the change from iinet ADSL to Optus Cable has meant that that migration has been completed without having to stretch the uploads out over 3-4 months (only 20 odd days with Optus).

Pick where I moved to cable :P
