using cloud storage vs local backup - for small size backups.

Last Modified: 2014-11-12
i need to do a backup of 2 files (100MB total) each day, and perhaps keep a backup of 2 weeks and then delete them.

i can get this which is $5 a month...

or would you recommend this solution....
to get a 4GB stick and put it in the USB drive. and then use the tool in XP pro
to copy the 2 backup files to the USB stick every night.? that may be cheaper.. but do you see any issues in this approach? any concerns for failure?
