You can use the usenet to store your backup data online for free.<ref>https://ift.tt/387XChH> This method is called usenet backup or uBackup.<ref>https://ift.tt/3ajnzfA </ref> Besides a computer with a (high-speed) internet connection, you would also need to have usenet access (during upload). If you have that, then you have '''''unlimited free online storage'''''. Because anyone can potentially download your private data, you need to encrypt it. Your data is copied to every usenet provider around the world, so you can restore your data from a different usenet provider. Currently some usenet providers have retention times of more than 11 years, which translates into more than 40000 terabytes of storage!<ref>https://ift.tt/2Tb0Wo3>
