whats the best way to store/keep all your photos once free drop box comes to a close,

i have heard people having problems accessing there files once there free drop box comes to an end,
they sent me an email stating my free account was ending in June,
and invited me to pay for there service,

i do like drop box but dont want to pay £7 odd a month for the service

Your ISP will probably have a free file dump Malcolm.

If you have a Google account you can use Google Drive Malcolm - I just had to use it as the photo was too 'big' to attach.
Will investigate posting possibilities later.

I've just signed up for MS Office 365 home. The £80 per year version gives you up to 5 non-commercial users each with a laptop and mobile device (so 10 copies in all) plus 1 Tb each of onedrive storage. Compared to paid for storage, think of it as 5Tb for £80 a year with 10 free copies of MS Office. It strikes me as good value for our family - 2 adults, 2 students all having latest versions of word, excel etc and all that storage for not a lot of money. You don't have to be family members, the main user gets a log on and simply sends a link to up to 4 other people from a control panel.
