Default Best Online File Storage Site

Hi,

I'm changing jobs and have a ton of files built up over the years. Instead of just emailing these filed to myself I thought I would finally look into an online storage site. I did a quick Google search and several came up but thought I would ask the opinions of others ...

I'm looking for:

- safety and a reputable site - not some fly by night operation (Does Google or Microsoft have such sites?)
- largest storage capacity for word docs and pdf's and powerpoints for free
- free - don't want to pay
- easy transfer - hopefully some sort of click and drag to transfer many files quickly
- web based entirely - no downloads needed


Maybe there are other features I haven't thought of - all help appreciated. Thanks

Microsoft has its own free service. It's called the Skydrive and for free, it holds up to 5g. Search it up on google and it will be one of its top links. Hpe tht helps.

Why not just burn the files to cd/dvd? Then you'll have a permanent backup in case something happens to the computer they're on.

But, thumb drive will not give you continuous data protection. Online Backup Service is more reliability & cost-effective than physical backup.
