Cheap static storage
Posted on 2013-01-11
I need a remote location to store data. It doesn't need to sync. Static is fine. Basically, this will be my remote drive. Instead of buying an external drive and copying certain files to it, then putting that drive in a safe deposit box for offsite storage, I've decided to just use a remote service. This way, I always have access to it.
Most remote services have syncing and transfer limits. I don't need syncing. I do need about 300GB of storage space. I might download 50-100GB per month. These files will be application install files, photos and music. I will rarely access them. The above large transfers are in case I need to download an app (Adobe Photoshop) that is 2-10GBs big.
Dropbox an similar services are around $99/yr for 100GB. But I don't need all of their bells and whistles so I'm looking for something cheaper that is more stripped down and will allow about 300GB of storage. Any ideas?
