If you have the bandwidth to spare, personally I recommend dropbox. It's very easy to use. I just download the desktop client (which you don't have to) and drop the files into the client and it'll automatically sync between my computer and the online storage service. By default Dropbox is accessed via HTTPS, so your connection is always secured. Your basic allocation is 2GB but you can pay for an increase or refer more people to get more space. Lemme know if you want a referral link and I'll pass one to you. :)

As all said.. http://explore.live.com/windows-live-skydrive is the best site to upload your documents and other important files.. but I also suggest you to make physical copy on CD/DVD is also a good way to back up your files as sometimes you are not connected with internet and you need those files then? so it will be two way back up of your data.. also you can do one thing that attach your files in mail and save them as draft or you send it to your own id and keep in one folder of mail..

I like to take advantaeg of Skydrive from Hotmail. The storage is 25GB if my memory is correct. I like to upload my software to my account and I can also share it with others. The connection speed is fine, too. You can try, it is totally free of charge. I love China

If you need a lot of storage, A Drive (http://www.adrive.com/plans) offers 50GB of storage FREE for individual/personal use. You can even share individual files via a link or e-mail to friends and relatives. However, no encryption is employed. Therefore, you may wish to encrypt your files before uploading. If the amount of storage isn't that important, MyOtherDrive (http://www.myotherdrive.com/) offers 2GB for FREE and features unattended backups and encryption. Since the the files are encrypted on your computer before uploading (you set your own encryption password) to MyOtherDrive, once uploaded, only you can decrypt the files. This may be an easier to use online backup solution that provides encryption and automatic (unattended) backups, and the best part is that it's FREE...

Some Anti-virus company offer a free backup storage in their client (i think 5GB). And it is free but it is depend of what type of subscription you are (free or paid). If it is not so confidential you can upload it to megaupload, hotfile and etc. But check it daily because I think it has a expiration. You can also upload it to your email address and save it. Hope it help.
