You only get 1TB with office365 deals which costs 5.99/month.

Why bother at all? Buying your own storage is dirt cheap now. A 1TB drive cost 40 or less. If you are worried about reliability, buy two.

If you're constantly jetting around the world and need to access the data frequently from anywhere, buy a network drive and leave it attached to your home network. Many use multiple disks to ensure that data is not lost through a disc failure.

The free 'Cloud' systems advertised are just tricks to get you using them before they introduce charges for your data. Cloud storage may make sense for a big company, but why on earth would an individual user want to trust his data to someone else and pay them for it?

Cloud storage offers offsite back ups incase of fire/flood/theft etc.

Don't bank on it, loads of backup systems are found to be faulty when needed.

Remote servers aren't always reliable, here are a few situations I've come across:-

Server company went bust, everybody trying to recover their data then brought the server to its knees.

Primary server went faulty, secondary server faithfully copied trash and no original data left worth talking about.

Cloud hosting shoved its prices up to over double.

Small print limited how much data you were allowed to recover at once.

Server company lying, both primary and secondary servers were in the same room.
