Cloud

I wonder if anyone knows of a UK cloud service for storing one's docs and pics etc.  I do not want any US services, such as Google Drive as they and their government are a nosey lot  Undecided

Hey,
Not sure of a service as of yet - But I'm sure something will come about soon Wink
Have you thought about OwnCloud?
Cheers,

Don't think that our government are not a 'nosey lot' too. If you want to protect your data from prying eyes then encrypt it, and with a strong password/phrase.

Re: Cloud

The available Clouds seem to be geared to business. So I have downloaded everything to my 64gb SanDisk flash. And, Razer, you're right, so the flash drive solves that issue. Thanks guys, matter now taken care of.

Re: Cloud

You could build your own using an old PC and a large hard drive, then install Ubuntu Server and add the Cloud components.

Re: Cloud

Yes Purleigh, I could but I recently standardized my computing with my Chromebook, and gave my old Sony Vaio to a family member.  Good point though.
