AudioSafe is a refreshing new online backup concept: backup for free, only pay to restore should the need ever arise.

No size limits, backup TB's of audio: mp3, m4a, WMA, FLAC, Apple Lossless, lossy, lossless - we will take it all! (see audiosafe.com for restrictions)

Safe guard your music collection.
Still not believing us? one more time: backup as much audio as you have, with no monthly subscriptions, all to an unlimited locker.

For full details (currently at the beta-testing stage) visit www.audiosafe.com

Only pay to restore, but pay what amount as the site doesn't outwardly disclose that? Is it going to be like some ransom cost, etc., where just buying an external USB hard disk would be more cost effective.

+1

Also, if someone other than the owner ends up gaining possession of uploaded files, I assume the owner could be held responsible for violating copyright laws. Sounds like more trouble than it's worth. I'm not a fan of online backup solutions in general, as they don't offer any advantages over off-site backups on external hard drives.

I agree that backing up to your own HDDs is a wise thing to do.

But what's wrong with an _additional_ "just in case" copy online to give you some extra peace of mind?
Of course, we've yet to see the price for downloading, which will determine its real value, but since uploading is free for even a huge amount of files (something I haven't seen anywhere else) it's IMO an interesting project.

The EULA should probably have you covered on this (unless you share your account with other people - something you won't be inclined to do, since it's not free to download the files).
