Does anyone know where I can find a TB of online storage? I am crashing my computer and upgrading from Vista to Windows 7. I wanna just save everything online

It would take days to upload that much from a residential connection. Next time partition your OS off from all your data. Makes reinstallations so much easier.

As someone that has near a TB of data stored in the cloud... yeah, it takes ages to upload that amount on most home (read: non-FIOS) connections. Better off with an external drive in this situation, or partitions.

But you can get 1TB of storage from Google Drive for $50 a month.

Or if you're just looking for a backup solution, Backblaze is excellent and like $5 a month

Ehhh, while Google Drive is theoretically foolproof against losing your data, I would rather spend a years worth of fees on 6 seperate TB HDDs. Being silly and making them all redundant would give you the same level of loss protection as you would have to be extroadinarily unlucky to have all six drives fail close enough together to lose your data. That or a natural disaster.
