I'm looking for a site where I can log in, save/ upload some files and then access them from another computer. Any recommendations? TIA...

    I am not using online storage but I asked the question (do a search) and among the answers was this one, which is cheap and not so useless:

    Dropbox is probably the best-known and works superbly.

    Many choices.
    Dropbox
    Box.com
    Google Drive
    Skydrive
    Wuala

    You get up to 7Gb free. Everything more is referral or cost-based. 25Gb on Skydrive is for the long-time users (I have this too).

    If you have Gmail, take Google drive. I you have Hotmail/Outlook.com, take Skydrive. If you have an Android phone, try Box as you might get 50Gb free.

    I use a mix of them all.

    I currently have 26Gb free on one of my Dropbox accounts actually. I was testing some phone at work and set up dropbox on it and got given something like 20Gb free as part of an HTC promotion. Nice.

    I rarely use more than a couple of Gb on either account mind you.

    Here's my referral link for Dropbox: http://db.tt/rczNxdHN

    I think you get +500Mb as do I. Anyone who tests it please give feedback.....it's not clear for me.

    Edit. it is clear, it is correct.
