Online Versus Hard Drive Data Storage

Is Your Data Stored in a Cloud or on a Drive?

It only takes one...maybe two...Carrie Bradshaw-like computer-crashing-at-the-worst-possible-moment conundrums to get serious about backing it up. Most of my data lives in the "clouds" — in Gmail, Flickr, and online storage — but there's something to be said for the easy external device setup. How do you back up your data? Picking "I don't" isn't an option here.

Any external hd we have is usually devoted to storing music and movies. I store all of my work and school things with the help of google. Google docs is a lifesaver, and so is google bookmarks, so you can have all of your bookmarked content with you no matter what computer you're using at the moment. It might be a bad idea, but I feel pretty safe having my stuff in the cloud.

Yeeaahhh, I don't think I trust the internet to store my entire life. :P

I'm half and half - personal files are on an external hard drive and work/school files are in a cloud.
