As an alternative to Dropbox, you should check out https://www.sugarsync.com/referral?rf=tetx5o7bz6i2.

Full disclosure, yes that is my referral link.  However, by signing up using my link, you and I both will get an extra 500 mb of free storage, on top of the free 5 GB.  Or, you can just go directly to their sign up page here https://www.sugarsync.com/free/.

While it's best to still use a tool like Truecrypt in conjunction with SugarSync, they do encrypt your data automatically upon upload.  That, combined with the 5 GB of free storage is hard to beat.

I use both already. Smiley

That's meaningless and useless. There is no difference between SugarSync encrypting the data but keeping the keys and SugarSync not encrypting the data at all. In both cases, SugarSync and anyone they authorize, and only SugarSync and anyone they authorize, can access the data.

dropbox has always been massively shitty.  Why anyone has ever used it is beyond me.. Oh wait, I know why, because they're fucking poors.  You get what you pay for.

Spider Oak seems good to me. They say it's all encrypted on your side, but I encrypted myself anyway.

I was thinking about the issue of protecting bitcoin wallets recently.

My thought was it's not enough to "back up" our wallet.  You really need a "bank" (for want of a better word, it's one we all understand).

You want to be able to send your coins to a wallet that you KNOW can't be compromised.
The moment you assume a system can't be compromised is the moment you lose. Every system has weaknesses whether you know it or not. Anyone who needs to protect valuable information should have a healthy sense of paranoia. You can never assume any one system is perfect, so don't put all your eggs in one basket. Research different methods of keeping your bitcoins, spread your risk around, and never, ever trust your entire balance of bitcoins to a single point of failure.
