    what free cloud data storage services do you use?

    I used to like Mediafire, but some strange things are happening there. I often use Opendrive, Flipdrive, and Box.com. They offer 5 GB free file storage, and I don't have to download any type of software to my computer. I was wondering, is there are any other free cloud storage services (that don't require a presence on my harddrive) that I could try? Thanks.

    I use Ubuntu One too, but I found SKyDrive to be good as well.

    If I have to use one, I use DropBox, but that is rarely. I blame remote access to my home server for part of that.

    ownCloud. It may take a little configuration to set up in comparison to signing up for a Dropbox account, but I'll happily take my personal 3TB of cloud space hosted on my own server out of my basement any day.

    Some Lenovos have a whitelisted BIOS which prevents you from changing the wifi card.

    Agreed. I've been thinking of setting it up on my VPS, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    For free, I use Dropbox and Google Drive.

    For pay, I use Crashplan.
