Just asking.

If the service is free, how could it be reliable? Who's paying for disk space, backup, pizza and electric bills?

You're not going to find much, if anything, for free! Are you just looking to upload a file to share or tranfer to another PC or to someone else? Secondly, why would you want an unknown entity to have access to your possibly important data? Buy an external HD and store your data there. It's portable and can be taken anywhere and hooked to any PC/Mac. There are also USB Flash drives you can put in your pocket and take anywhere as well. Storage size on those have increased to 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, 6gb!

Sign up for a free Yahoo account. They offer a "brief case" feature with 30 meg of storage space that you can access from any computer. You can even share files with friends with the proper authorization. I believe they are safe and reliable.

You both posted to a thread that is now 3 years old. Both posts had site advertising which contravenes Forum Policy.

While such reference to products on web sites may be acceptable if they are relevant to the discussion, since this discussion is so old, I do not consider them relevant.

That's why I deleted your posts.
