I have a portable external itty bitty drive for that, and the speed is almost instant. If you have files over 100 megs cloud is agonizing. Not to mention upload times. Not everyone has rocket internet. j/s

As an InfoSec professional, I will admit that it took me a long time to accept cloud solutions for work and/or personal use.  However, I've come to embrace the cloud as long as the company and their processes check out.  Encryption during stransmjtion as well as encryption at rest are 2 of my requirements.  I trust Livedrive for personal and small business user and I trust EVault for enterprise level solutions.  Now, having said that, I do have paranoid friends who still use this service for most files and documents, but keep their most secure stuff in iCloud or on encrypted local drives.  Either way, I have many professional InfoSec colleagues who use Livedrive.  Also, they use military level 256 bit AES Encryption at all stages of the process.  Only you have access to your data.

Also, there are awesome money making opportunities for IT Consultants who want sign up their customers.  Great commissions to punch up your income as a private consultant.

I wouldn't trust my data on some unknown server in a million years.

Amazing and powerful backups to the cloud for Mac and PC. Safe, secure, and your data and files are accessible to you anywhere. You can't beat it.
