Cloud Storage MEGA is 50GB, free.
External drive is another option.

What I periodically save is just the data files. That is the core of your game. Because when the data files corrupted, all is over. But if the resource files are lost, I can still use the placeholder. And the data files only took a few kb/mb.

I personally use Dropbox (2 GB ) and that is enough for me to keep one project (I only have one project after all)

Make sure you DO only use it as storage - don't develop your game in the same location that is syncing to the online storage - that is prone to file corruption issues.

I use github. Getting it set up and overcoming the learning curve might seem daunting to some, but once you're past it, backing up your project is as simple as opening github desktop and clicking like 2 things.

One advantage of github over manually backing things up is that it has version control, so if you want to revert to an earlier version, you can with relative ease.

I got a new PC... Nothing wrong with my lil laptop at all! Still works great, and I'll be using it for school. But, the specs for gaming were falling off fast. So I was selfish and bought myself a beast of a PC ^-^
