With the new version of Windows OneCare, there is a new tool called Online Photo Backup which brings you a new way to backup your digital photos. With Online Photo Backup, you can get 10 GB of online storage for your photos. This new feature is one of many that will be introduced in OneCare 2.0, currently in beta, but available for download here
. The Online Photo Storage will be an optional add-on at an additional fee, but no word on how much it will be just yet.
The photo backup feature will give you peace of mind that your photos are backed up and safe at a secure off-site location. Additionally, the settings for online photo backup can be managed from one console for the multiple PCs that are authorized on your OneCare account. Sure, you could backup your photos by burning CDs, but who has the time for this anymore? Online Photo Backup represents the beginning of what's being called "Windows Live Cloud Infrastructure," and the 10 GB is just the beginning - over time, this could increase as demand grows. You can view a demo of this feature on the Windows Experience blog
