    Sounds like a good idea if you have a fast connection, I would far rather use my own "cloud" than somebody else's. However with a standard 8Mb/s connection giving an upload speed of about 400Kb/s, it would take rather a long time to access even a few typical 12MB raw image files ...

      Yes - this is the current weakness of the Cloud for many uses. I have a couple of terabytes of files on my Cloud service - LiveDrive, - it was relatively easy getting the files up there (we have an unlimited upload tariff here at the office) but downloading them could be expensive or very slow...

        I have 50GB available on BT Cloud but I worked out that if I wanted to fill that up over a standard ADSL phone line, with the computer on 24/7 it would take approximately a fortnight .
