    200 GB photo storage 7th Jun 17 at 8:41 AM
    I have an external hard drive with 200gig of photos and I worry that should this go faulty I would lose over 10 years of pictures, my question would it be better to back up with a second external hard drive or is there a low cost way to store this amount on an equivalent to icloud.
    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    It's unlimited because they are increasing their data centers storage capacity's each year to be ahead of demand.

    So the data centers capacity may not be unlimited but you will never be able to fill it up because they are forever increasing it.

    They tend to advertise unlimited not expecting anyone to get near using too much but align this to am "acceptable use" policy.
    I started with nothing and I am proud to say I still have most of it left.

    How about Flickr:

    Flickr is now offering every user 1 terabyte of free storage for original resolution photos.

    Flickr does not compress originals.
    If you download your originals, the files you receive will be bit-for-bit identical.

    Like most photo apps, we create several sizes of thumbnail images for the purpose of showing images quickly on the web and in the mobile apps.
