1TB+ Online Storage

I just filled up my $10/month Google Drive 1TB plan. The next step up is $100/month 10TB plan, which I can't afford. Is there a way to get 2TB or maybe 1ยข/gb on Google Drive? I really love Google Drive, but maybe there other services that offer 1TB+ for a reasonable amount of money? Dropbox seems to max out at 1TB? [more inside]

Best backup solution 2014

I've always backed my files on CDs and DVDs, but a few years back I decided to go for external hard disks because they seemed more practical. I would love to get SSD external hard disks, but they are very expensive. I'm currently looking at cloud-based backup solutions but I don't really know where to find something of quality that is private and relatively cheap. Any ideas? [more inside]

Resources for executives learning about IT industry?

My boss has asked me to help him find some introduction-level resources to understand modern IT industry fundamentals (cloud computing, modern storage technologies, security, system architecture, etc.) from a management standpoint. I have a good handle on the technical side, but I'm not sure where to look for the basics. What resources would be a good introduction? Web sites are most helpful, free or paywalled okay.

Likelihood of Dropbox deleting my files?

I use a free Dropbox account for loads of stuff and I think it's a great service, but I currently only use 70% of my allowance and don't want to fork out for pro. However, I recently read the Ts and Cs of free account and see that they can delete my files whenever they like. Eek! I find it pretty unlikely this would happen, but how big a risk do you think it is? Is it worth paying just for the security, or is it so unlikely that I can continue with free service and peace of mind?

Beam me up

So, I have nearly a terabyte of photos of my daughter stored on a computer which has been taken over by tr/crypt.xpack.gen (if that is your real name). It would probably be best that I store the photos on some sort of server somewhere (clouds?), but I know nothing of such things. Any advice on online storage, computer security, and not shooting in raw would be greatly appreciated. Please help, as we would rather not have to force my daughter back in the womb to recreate the photos of her birth. [more inside]

Cheapest online storage?

What is the hands-down cheapest way to store a large amount of data online: say 100GB with say 100GB transfer per month? Bandwidth and transfer limit aren't a priority as long as media files can be streamed right away any time. Why? Because we would all like to put our music collections online. The lowest I've found is about 10 cents per gigabyte.

Where to store jpegs and gifs online

I have a bunch of funny/interesting/neat pictures that I've accumulated over time from the internet. Rather than storing them all locally on my harddrive, any way I can do that online for free? (This question could also be expanded to other filetypes, like word documents and music files, so if you have suggestions for that, please post them as well.)
