I really couldn't find the best place to post this question but I suppose it really falls under "organizing" - it's about finding a place to back up your files (specifically family & kids photos) online permanently so I don't need to burn backup CDs and keep them and lose them still if anything were to happen to our home or gets lost in the process of moving, who knows.
I know these are popular but I need recommendations. Where is the best place online to backup your data? (somewhere safe, reliable, secure, best price, etc)
I know there are places like shutterfly but that sort of printing and sharing website isn't what I'm looking for. I'm looking more for storage/backup type places. I don't want to be loading photos one by one to the site. I want to upload an entire folder all at once (for example, my photos are organized on my computer by month, each month has its own folder and I want to find a place to upload/dump all of these folders as a secure data storage so I won't have to keep any backup myself). I'd appreciate any recommendations. Thank you.
I have just been through an email hacking episode, which made me realize that I needed a much better way of backing up my computer. I am using Backblaze, http://www.backblaze.com, which for $4/month continuously and automatically backs up my data, doing it all in the background whenever the computer is connected to the internet. It is idiotproof. I don't have to remember to do anything.
Another option is Dropbox, http://www.dropbox.com. You have to manually add the files that you want, but then it automatically keeps it current, syncing any changes. I use Dropbox as well as Backblaze. I keep documents that I want to share or be able to access from work computer, iPhone, etc. on Dropbox. Dropbox is free.
I use Dropbox, and was going to suggest it also, but it's only free up to a certain size limit. If you're storing a lot of media files, you'll hit that limit pretty quickly. However it's not terribly expensive to upgrade to a larger limit.

I use box.net for file storage. It has "cloud computing" capabilities with mobile devices and such. I love it. No USB's or CDs to lose. Free storage to a certain limit (I have yet to reach it in 5 years).
