Default Automatic online storage?

Any good sites out there? Easily accessible, that automatically back ups files once connected to Internet. Free if possible, no need for a large storage.

Using Microsoft Live Mesh that is part of Windows Live Essentials you can have it sync folders for you. You get 5GB of free storage for syncing. You can set it to sync between the cloud and multiple machines if you want as well.

So not really an automatic backup but it does work pretty good.

Yea there is dropbox folder on your computer, so you just move files in there and if you are online it will automatically sync and upload to the dropbox servers. Right click on whatever file you want from the Dropbox folder, click "Cop Public Link" - BAM

And did I mention is cross-platform? :P

Dropbox can serve you as a backup method sure, but its main goal is to sync your files/folders automatically to different computers. The max I think they offer is about 100GB. I could be wrong here
