    Hi guys. I found this service in mid 2007, when it was in beta. I uploaded a couples files, and kind of forgot about it.

    I recently needed to backup my files, however I didn't really want to buy another external drive. So, I remembered ADrive, and surprise!, its still there. Unlike Oosah for example.

    Still 50 GB free. You can upload up to a 1000 files at a time and each file cannot exceed 2 GB. I've been using it to upload all my pictures, home videos, etc. I can't really find any other service that matches this, except for Mozy, in which you pay a flat rate for unlimited storage. I've also tried SkyDrive, but it only offers 25 GB free and there is no native support for multiple file uploads.

    So, for anyone looking for a backup solution, this is one way of securing your data! The URL is http://adrive.com.

    People really should read how these kind of company's store your data and who has access to it. As for me Online back up's are pointless with as cheap as a external hard Drive is.

    I agree, some good services there, but I'd go with someone more reputable, like www.mediafire.com

    They have a paid service where you can upload files at 2GB at a time. Both free and pro are unlimited in size.

    The purpose of using an online service is to have an offsite backup. If someone steals your computer and takes the external hard drive with it (or if your home is damaged by fire or water), you could be out of luck.

    I share your concern about who has access to my data. I encrypt all of my data before it is backed up on Mozy.
