I don't know if there's any catch, but many web hosting companies offer
unlimited bandwidth and unlimited storage space now.  And there are many
of these offered at less than $5.00 / month.  They might pinch bandwidth
down to something really slow while trying to transfer a really large
file.  I don't know.  And I have to imagine that the companies that
specialize in on-line backup probably put more effort into security, but
if you're just trying to make sure that you still have your favorite
files after a tornado carries your house away, it might be a cheap and
flexible way to go.

I work from home, but my office is pretty far away from my house, so I
just back files up between the two.

Regards, Robb
