There are lot of sites offering online file storage up to 10GB or even more.What do you feel, about these? Is it safe to store our valuable files there? Even if we are ready to store files, in case of some technical failure or some other reason, if we happened to loose our data, what is the next step to proceed?What kind of benefit they are getting by doing so?

for non essential stuff but things you would like to save (like software exes, or some rar files or music, etc, non life threatening stuff), i like to use Adrive because they offer 50gb of storage, pretty chill. or i just use my gmail account with the Gdrive with Firefox

I don't trust sites like these personally, call me paranoid. Any site that offers to hold your information is a potential threat. I'm sure there are a lot of legitimate websites you there but just in case of some sort of system failure, what would happen to your data? I think that using a flash drive is the best bet. As long as you don't lose it, no one can access it. It is the safest thing for storing data, and they are somewhat cheap too.

Yes, you are correct. Nothing can be claimed if we happened to loose data. Thanks for your suggestion
