Do you use an online backup service?
If so, did you start using it because of a disaster such as hard drive crash, lost/stolen laptop, etc?
I use online backup services to keep files that I will need in a few days and am not sure where I will be then. I also do save some of my pending hubs in SkyDrive or Google Drive, while using online document editing apps.
On your second question; I would not blame it on storage mishap at home. I try to be as safe as possible by maintaining multiple local backup solutions.
Good rule of thumb, if it is important you need 2 backups.
1 local and 1 offsite
You should always use some type of remote backup.
Google Drive works Well!
no, any information that leaves your control is subject to being compromised, I'm way too paranoid to back up online. I always make sure I back up on an external hard drive at home, that way I have it in two places. Of course the danger in that is if I have a fire that destroys my home, I'll lose everything.
I do only for files that I will need access to or want to share with others when I don';t have my laptop or memory stick with me.
Otherwise I store all my information/data in my nice 3TB USB storage which I carry with me in my laptop bag.
Just added security - and yes, I have had bad crashes in the past, though drives seem to be more reliable now.
I highly recommend Dropbox. Dropbox looks like a normal windows folder, and everything you put in it synchs to the Cloud. Furthermore, if you have another machine and install Dropbox with the same account, it automatically synchs that machine up as well. Genius!
