Instead of paying for a service or setting up a server of your own, have
you considered a 2.5" hard drive in an external USB chassis? There are
some out there that do not require an external power source, too. If you
already have an iPod with enough space, you could possibly use that as

Initially expensive, but potentially another location to store your data
if you needed another archive.
