How to Store Securely Important Files Online? Your information is the result of processing, gathering and organizing data which you retrieved from various meaningful contexts and reliable sources. You spent a lot of time processing it, and you do not want to lose it. Your information is a part of you; it is a part of your life. In most cases – it is you. If your computer crashes, is stolen, or you upgrade to a new computer, you want to rest assured that you will not lose your information. You want to protect your information from any failures, disasters or accidents. Why to Use Online File Storage Services? Online file storage services are Internet hosting services which host large files. They can be optimized either for serving many users, or for single user storage. Users can upload their files, images or music and either share them with others or keep them password protected. Online file storage services have been increasingly used by companies and individuals worldwide over the past few years due to the following reasons: 1. Cost-effectiveness 2. Security and privacy 3. Accident and disaster avoidance 4. Access of information at any time and in any part of the world 5. Convenient exchange of information with others whenever you like 6. Organize your files online easily and conveniently. How to Choose a Reliable Service? Some online file storage companies have higher levels of physical security than others therefore it is vital to choose the right one. It is worth considering the following features, as well as some problems, before choosing a reliable online file storage service: 1. Free service. Such online companies rely on online advertising profits and cannot guarantee security of your files - you do not want your files to be deleted without notice. 2. Storage space is offered on a per-gigabyte basis, therefore you must know how much space you will need. 3. Sometimes special software may be required: it may make your files available only on computers which have that particular software installed; this may cause inconvenience. 4. Some online storage services may allow you to upload and download your files through any web browser without any particular software. How good are they? 5. Although some space providers claim that they offer ‘free unlimited file storage’ – usually there is a limit, at least on the file size. 6. Bandwidth capacity and upload or download speed. With the increased inbox space offered by free email services, such as Google and Yahoo, many users have started using their e-mail service as a free online drive. The problem with these services is that the reliability and security is questionable; also, it is not convenient to organize files there. Email service is primarily designed for a different purpose. There are a few reliable free online file storage services which can safely host your files without any particular software, such as iCloud, iDrive, Google Drive and OneDrive.
