Default Online storage sites:

I may have put a similiar thread on this site but this one has more questions.

Does anyone on this site use great online storage site[s] that:

1. have good storage capacity (at least 500 Mb).
2. keeps files forever.
3. ability to publish files (for public web access).

Point 2 is the most imortant item.

Thank you.

however point 2 would be difficult to really tick that box as what happens and it does happen that hardware breaks and or the online hosts business goes bust or they cease to offer that service, which is why my suggestion is as above and I have been using this for about 3 months and you can have personal secured folders, shared folders with MS Passport ID friends and public access folders.

Online hosts are no substitute for a hard media backup.

I personally use something called Gmail Drive. You can't publish it but I think that Google's servers would be very stable. Basically, what Gmail Drive does is kind of make your Gmail account into an "ftp" sort of thing where you can drag and drop files into your Gmail account. But to access your files again, you have to go into your account and download the attachment.
