Do you use an online storage or back-up service like Dropbox or Google Drive?

Dropbox...every day for work. It's PHENOMINAL!

Well, eventually I'll get around to backing my stuff up on iCloud...but not yet lol

I love drop box for file storage, but that's it. I would shy away from cloud backups.

Already using Dropbox, thank god, would have failed plenty of projects without that

It pays to read the fine print, but everyone already knew that, right? lol

I use Dropbox to share files between my devices, and with other people, but nothing sensitive.

I like Dropbox, but I will not be using Google Drive. Google "Google Drive" and read the CNET article "Who Owns Your Files on Google Drive?"

iCloud nice to be able to backup without hooking up to my computer

I'm not willing to trust cloud services with my backup just yet. I'll use it for document sharing, but not all of my data. I backup at home and at the office.

Hell to the no child. That's all kinds of foolish! Never store personal information off-site if you can help it. And make the on-site storage is well-protected.

I have used Dropbox, but not for anything really important. I typically use an external drive if I need to backup something significant.

I will never trust an Internet service with my data. I use my own drive

04/24/12 1:09 pm

A little bit. Not really. My comp isn't backed up but I should do that even though there's nothing really on there

04/24/12 12:04 pm

Dropbox , and of course iCloud :)

I use iCloud for the things on my iPad, but that is mostly just so I can have a back up for my music and my and my son's books. Everything on our desktop is backed up to 2 different external drives. one kept in a fire safe and one kept at my husband's work.

Dropbox only for temporary transfers of large files, like sharing a music practice session with the group, etc. never anything personal. I don't have iCloud yet and hate being forced in that direction.

Dropbox! iCloud too. I would love to try google's. I tried Evernote but I didn't dig the ads.

04/24/12 11:06 am

I have no need for it, I don't have any personal or important things on my computer.

Dropbox, but usually Evernote can do enough.

Dropbox is my life. Lol not really but I put all my school and debate docs in it and it is fantastic.

It's the perfect way to give hackers access to everything they need about you, they can access your network, control your computer, steal your identity, there is so much possible harm with these online services.

04/24/12 9:12 am

I'm paranoid about things like that I just buy hard drives

04/24/12 9:04 am

Dropbox. I store important documents like home inventories on it in case of a fire. Also makes maintaining a file on two computers a snap.

No, and probably never will. Security is nowhere near good enough, and the US based providers would release my data to the government, something I would certainly not do. The overhead of double encrypting every file before storage makes it too unwieldy.

External hard drive locked in a safe for me. Do like putting my stuff where just anyone can get to it when they feel like it.

@Fionaandcake! Same here! Dropbox is my hero! It beats sending emails and using a USB drive

A little, but I keep my important info off. The security is a little bit too iffy with so many hackable points. I'll stick to physical backup when I can.
