Hi, in additional to these 3 companies, Dropbox is another webspace provider. It launched in 2008. Ordinary computer users have been able to store files on cloud storage 16 years ago. Maybe there were other webspace providers which were older than Dropbox. Smile

'Houston founded Evenflow, Inc. in May 2007 as the company behind Dropbox, and shortly thereafter secured seed funding from Y Combinator. Dropbox was officially launched at 2008's TechCrunch Disrupt, an annual technology conference.'

I'm like johnno when it comes to this, never use any cloud services or such, just hard drives and usb sticks. I do however have all versions if n7 stored on naalaa.com Smile I have never used github.

I see.

On the other hand, modern SSD should be reliable as well. Blush

Well... About 6 months ago I had to rebuild my machine but fitted it with an SSD instead of the standard HD. The machine is WAY faster starting up (usually within 20 seconds - power on to desktop ready) and there have been no errors so far... A longer time will give a fairer test for reliability. So far the SSD has been very reliable.

SSD is really amazing! Shy

The improved speed is usually due to not having to wait for the HD's mechanical head to 'seek' and 'read' the data needed... also it uses less power than a mechanical drive...
