Online Free Storage
Online free storage - it sounds like a big hard drive in the sky, with gigabytes of free storage for all. Does that sound too good to be true? Well, it's for real. Once you master online storage, there's no need to buy a bigger hard drive or burn stacks of CDs; just upload your photos, videos, documents, and other files to someone else's storage space for free!

Several well-known and trusted companies offer free online file storage space. Here's the scoop on how it works...

Which Backup Storage Device Is Best?
Having learned (perhaps the hard way) that backing up your data is a vital chore that must be done regularly, you may be looking for the best backup storage device. There are a number of options and price ranges among backup storage devices; the best one for you depends on your computing environment and habits.

Here are some tips to help you find the right choice for your needs...

Reverse Mobile Phone Number Lookup
If you're looking for the owner of a phone number, a search engine may tell you for free. If it's a residential landline phone number the odds of finding it online are pretty good, as long as it's not unlisted. But if it's a mobile phone number, you are probably not going to find it online free of charge.

That doesn't mean you can't find out who is calling from a mobile number - it just costs money. That's where reverse mobile phone lookup services come in...

Do Identity Theft Protection Services Work?
Many people are concerned about identity theft these days, with good reason. If someone assumes your identity they can commit crimes for which you are blamed; raid your bank accounts; even ruin your employment prospects. With so much at stake, many people are paying over $20 a month for identity theft protection services.

But are they wasting their money? Here's the scoop on LifeLock and other id theft protection services...

CD and DVD Duplicators
So your garage band is ready to release its first album, congratulations! Or perhaps you've filmed a documentary, or developed some software that is to be distributed on CD. Either way, you need to duplicate CDs in mass quantities. There are several ways to duplicate CDs or DVDs.

Here are some tips to help you decide whether to go the do-it-yourself route, or outsource to a CD duplication service...

How to Destroy a Hard Drive
Sounds like a low-budget movie made for geeks, but the topic is serious. When you plan to get rid of an old hard drive, you really should render it totally inoperable. Tossing a hard drive in the trash, even after reformatting it, can expose all your sensitive data to a clever person, and make you easy prey for identity thieves.

Learn the best ways to utterly destroy a hard drive and all the data on it...

Is Your Hard Drive About to Crash?
If you're not ready to part with your hard drive, how can you tell if the drive is damaged, or if it's on the verge of crashing and burning? Most hard drives give some early warning signs, providing you time to backup your data or correct the problem. It's important to detect hard drive damage before it grows into a catastrophic failure.

Read both of these articles and learn how to check "under the hood" of your hard drive for signs of damage or impending doom...
