My wife is deployed to iraq and she wants to download files from her computer to a online backup site. They don't permit them to use Thumbdrive anymore on their computers and she has pictures and email that she want a copy of when she gets home. I am looking for a site where she can store these files and then retrieve them once she gets home. I don't think this would be considered the normal backup and restore situation.

As a side note. If this is a military computer please make sure she checks with her sysadmin before she uploads anything to one of these sites.

she can certainly us AOL's xdrive website where she can dump the data and later restore it, all she have to do it copy all the data and upload it but this is for trail period, or she can also use megaupload which is one of the popular websites where she can use up load upto 1 GB at one shot without splitting the files.

hope this helps
