    9 or SkyDrive+ Encryption = Safe Backup Solution

    I'm trying to figure out how to use's 50 GB's or SkyDrive's 25 GB's of free storage to backup my computer automaticaly.


    1. With ADrive I can select all my files at once through their website's uploader vs SkyDrive where you have to select them one by one. There are some third party programs, like Gladinet, which will mount sky drive to your computer like an extra drive, though I haven't found one for linux yet. This guy came up with a cool way to backup automagically with Windows: I am trying to figure out how to do the same thing with Linux.

    2. ADrive's uploader is not on https, whereas SkyDrive is. Either way I wanted to encypt my files on my computer first so when I back them up, they are safe in case they should fall into the wrong hands, not that I don't trust Microsoft or whoever ADrive is with all my most precious documents, but I'd rather error on the side of safety. Will this work and any ideas about how to go about it, please?
