IT CAN BE, but you have to choose wisely among the hundreds of free and paid sites out there. Free services usually place a limit on file sizes and delete files a week to a month after the last time they’re downloaded, which makes them great for sharing photos or documents but pretty useless for long-term storage. Some sites are fly-by-night operations that rely on banner ads– I the ads don't pay off, the sites, along with your files, can just disappear.
If you want to save files indefinitely, you’ll need to pony up some cash for a subscription-model site. Just be sure to choose one with the option of secure downloads or password  protection. Without those features, anyone who gets their hands on the download link can access your files. It’s hared to single out the best service available, one option worth checking is box.net ($80-$200/year), which has been around for a few years and is reliable and simple to use.
Even if you find an online service you like, make a second backup copy of your most crucial documents to an external hard drive, DVD or CD properly contained, they’re still your most secure option.
