Well for the past three months or so, I’ve been trying every desperate attempt at keeping my computer alive since it can’t afford a new one yet. It’s crashed twice before and eventhough then wasn’t a huge deal, now I have a TON of wedding stuff like projects on here and I can’t lose them or I’ll go mentally insaine! I’ve tried backing everything up on disks but seriously, it’s getting old since I have to update them almost everyday!
Does anyone know of a good site where I can store files on it for free? I have a photobucket account which is great but since my computer has acted up, it won’t work now.
Thanks for your help! 🙂

I would invest in a good external hard drive and back up to that. I don’t personally have any experience with any online websites so I can’t recommend any.

Do you know whats actully wrong with the computer? I know my dad has taken the harddrive? out and put it in a different computer for me. I also keep everything on an external harddrive now- I use a passport I think they are on sale a target for like $50 this week!

I think Google Docs might let you do that.
I bought a flash drive with a large amount of space on it for about $30, and I can save nearly everything on my computer to it (I had to sacrifice a few mp3s on my last backup session).

I would recommend an external drive as well. There’s also online storage options, such as Dropbox, where you can upload up to 2GB of any kind of file (for free!) and access it from any computer. Or you can upload all of your docs and spreadsheets to docs.google.com. Good luck!

An external harddrive it is! 🙂 I never even thought about that but it’s the best idea! Way better than saving my stuff on a website.
My computer was fine (it’s about 7 years old so it’s really old compaired to technology) until I moved in with my FI who has WiFi. For the longest time, anywhere between 5 minutes to 45 minutes after start up it would freeze and absolutly nothing would unfreeze it unless I turned it off from the tower. This has happened everyday, several times a day for a few months now and it’s obviously starting to take a toll on it. I ended up going to a computer guy and he says that my D-Link Wireless connector is what’s causing the problems because apparently D-Link and Windows XP rarely get along, just for future reference.
Anyways I’m going to get an external harddrive and well if my computer bites the big one then I’ll just have to use FI’s but at least I’ll have all my fines still 🙂
