What is the best online photo storage?

by Jareddonald / August 30, 2011 6:34 PM PDT

I have a large collection of family photos that I currently keep on external hard drives, but would like to store digitally online as well. Does anyone have any advice on which service offers the best deal for my needs?

I researched this subject of photo hosting about 6 months ago; kind folks pointed me to bluemelon. If you just need to archive your photo files, breakthrough pricing for cloud storage can be found at Hitachi Backup. I just signed up for 250 GB, 3 years, $110 total. That's only $3 per month for 250 GB!
