How low can it go?


How low can online storage prices go? I’m not sure I know the answer to that, but MediaFire recently announced promotional pricing of $2.50 per month for 1 TB , compared to the previously announced rate of $9.99/month for Google Drive. With prices like these, online backup is starting to make more and more sense. I’m not ready to completely give up on external hard drives, since I like having my own backup. Instead, I am planning to keep two backup copies. After all, you can’t be too safe.

    Thanks for sharing this good news Mark. Like you, I like my ex. HD’s & having control myself but I beginning to consider online backup ‘also’ with having more and more data to keep track of. Do you feel like there’s really that much difference in backup names? Remind us again how many photos could you save on 1Tb? I appreciate your reviews so much.
