Online File Storage
Secure safekeeping for your important electronic files
Ordinarily, a safe deposit box is a good place to keep your important documents. However, many of the important documents we need to save today are electronic: wills, mortgage documents, financial statements, etc. We typically store these on our computer's hard drive, which is vulnerable to viruses and malware and leaves us at risk of losing these documents.
Online File Storage offers you a free and secure online storage method for your electronic documents.
