Does anyone use an online storage program for photos or documents? If so what company? Are you happy with them? We are thinking of keeping an online copy of photos, videos and other precious documents. In the past we have just kept a backup copy at another location but we have so many photos and we never seem to remember to send on the latest ones. I’m wondering if uploading them would be a good option but I don’t know anyone who’s done it.

Because I use dropbox to share files with others, I actually now also use a paid monthly account for dropbox and I store my photos on there too for house photos etc.  I do intend to extend this to files as well. I guess it is convenient to me because I use it for clients to share files as well - so I get a bonus out of it by putting my own files in there.

Have you thought about Picasa? It's free and run by google. Image storing/sharing and editing website.

Another one here who uses drop Box.  I am not paying right now, but happy to soon.  It's easy, good for sharing, and my photos are all safe.

For people who use Dropbox and similar services... do you not worry about privacy issues?  How do you know Dropbox doesn't/won't share the files, photos, etc., or be exposed to hackers who could access them?  I would love to use a service like this but do worry about this aspect of it.
