I have plenty of family photos that are in desperate need of being backed up somewhere. I have found that SkyDrive is relatively easy to use with an IE uploader that allows one to drag the files from windows to upload. It would be even better and I could easily automate the process if I had FTP access to my SkyDrive but alas I do not. So, the my process is create a SkyDrive folder, drag my files from windows explorer into the IE SkyDrive uploader and hit the upload button. So far, I have successfully uploaded up to about 500 MB worth of files at one time.
