Uber cool new Microsoft Service

Ever have a file you'd like to host somewhere online, where you can get at it anywhere, anytime? How about an MP3 of some political soundbyte that you'd like to post on your blog for download?

I was in that situation last week, and stumbled across this neat little new service from Microsoft... Microsoft Live SkyDrive.

5GB of online storage... FREE. You can set up multiple folders, some for personal access, some for friends only, and some for full public access from the internet.

For example... say I wanted to offer to everyone Scott Reid's good old "Beer and Popcorn" clip... well, here you go!



Once again, Microsoft is trying to keep ahead of Google... if it means more and better services for users like you and me, then I'm all for it!

    Or you can try www.drop.io. It's free. You don't have to sign up for anything. You can host whatever you want up to 100MB in size. And each "drop" you create has a folder name you create (ie www.drop.io/christianconservative). You can have as many of those drops are you want. And you set them to auto expire from anywhere between a day and a year.

    I wouldn't trust Microsoft with my used toilet paper for safekeeping.....

    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

    Have a look here, too:
    http://www.backupreview.info/index.php?pid=read_article&article_id=9

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