Best web storage for photos

Last Modified: 2016-03-20
I have a couple of Terabytes of photos that I want to have a copy of on line as a backup.

I have checked out a few of the servcies and the prices and find a wide variance in the cost.

Would appreciate anyone sharing their experience with these services (or others).

My first thought is to consider this storage as a backup for the photos I have stored locally.

However, if I can trust their backups (Can I?), this could become my sole photo location.

Services I have looked at include:

Flickr pro $25 per year unlimited.

Picassa online 1T $600 per year

SugarSync 500GB for $400/year

Mozy Pro 500 GB for $2100/year

An autosync feature with local storage would be nice, but if the storage is solely on-line, then not as important.

Main fear is any of these companies go under or I otherwise lose access.

Suggestions and insights welcome.
