Edy you say store =- storage is one thing, storing such that you can easily and quickly access files is another.

For Storage, just look/google for Backup. CrashPlan, Carbonite and BackBlaze are there. Read the fine print, and ask questions. Carbonite as recently as the fall off 2011 seriously throttled people trying to upload more than 35 GB. (They may have changed - which is why I say ask.)

If you want access (you mentioned images) than you have a different issue. You might check out Google Drive and the Microsoft product whose name I have forgotten.

Carbonite is OK for downloading a few files - you will have to wait a minute or two. BackBlaze can be a hour. If you are looking are recovering (or getting back) 200 GB you will be taking days to download that or you may be forced to accept delivery of a physical HDD.

My system is using a both a backup and HDD clone on my desktop. For the clone system I have 3 physical HDDs that I cycle on a weekly basis to a lockbox at my bank. Worst case, my house is destroyed and I loose a week's worth of data changes/downloads. (Here is the system I use for my backups. I have a Mac for my main PC, but this will work with Apple or Windows. http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/NewerTech/Voyager/Hard_Drive_...
