Free unlimited cloud storage with no file size limit?

I'm looking for free cloud storage with unlimited storage+bandwidth and no maximum file size, I already have dropbox, box, and skydrive, but that's not enough space. I need about 700GB of space.

I want to backup all my games on cloud so that I can access them even with my DVDs conk out (no, I'm not going to let people download them, this is purely for personal storage)

Keep looking :facepalm:

There is no unlimited and free that feature in the same sentence. Cheapest per GB is probably Amazon glacier but it take 4 hours+ to prime a file before you download it so not meant to be always on.

What? Companies aren't lining up to give this to you for free? Start your own business = prof...huh wait, sorry = no profit.

Oh yeah, that's actually a really good idea. I completely forgot about that. Already have profit :) .

If such a company did exist, I'd be worried about how they made money. Perhaps by scanning the files being uploaded to them for confidential info to steal identies?

Uploading around 700gb on a cloud is not that good of an idea. Get a back up hard drive.

WTF? 700gb of games?
Go outside once in a while bud, let alone you want to upload all that, with the piss poor upload rates we have.

WOW!! I wonder if the op knows how long it would take to upload 700GB on a standard residential connection? With my basic high speed connection, it would take months to upload that much.

I second the nomination. OP, how about getting 1000 separate accounts. If that works for you, you can start the uploading now. Otherwise, it is going to be a long search for that elusive company.

...you won't find one. And unless you're on a university or corporate network you will literally be waiting months for everything to upload, and that's if it doesn't time out on you.
If you insist on using the cloud...how about making your own cloud at another location...in other words, just make backups and leave them at your parents's house...
And if you really need remote access setup a file server.

Even multiple accounts won't help, since they all offerings impose filesize limit.

BitCasa was supposed to be unlimited cloud.

Only reason I never maxed it out is because I was worried of their fees when the "free beta" period ends
