Open 6 MEGA or 3 SurDoc accounts. Put them a good passwords and backup your data using a desktop client downloaded from official sites. MEGA is "mega-secured"

@jamescv7 SkyDrive is now called OneDrive, due to a legal dispute from BSkyB.

@dragonmew Use cloud services for data backup and sync, not to upload OS system images. Now you have an external HDD, you can use for both data and system images.
