Best cloud storage for a project of 6 people?

Ideally free/cheap, though could fork out some £££ if it was a centralised payment (i.e. I couldn't make 6 different payments).

30gb storage per person minimum

Just use Google Drive? You probably don't even need a paid version.

Google drive free up to 15gb per person, looks like team-managed paid option is your best bet!

FUk, I need your investigative help!

Someone has deleted their entire blog on blogspot, which I would like to recover, to prove a point that they are lying..

I've tried timemachine and google cache thing, but nada.. Any other ideas? Or is it gone? Cry

Wordpress people - I'm trying include a form on a Wordpress site so that people can upload personal details and photographs - is their any way I can do this for free? Tried Google Forms and their file upload option disables when it is embedded. Any other options or is it pretty much just limitted to paid options like WPforms?

Does anyone have any experience of web scraping tools?

Ideally a free tool to start with as I simply want to be able to go to a website (say Nike.com for example), put an * in the search box (to return every item on the site), then save into an excel spreadsheet / notepad csv file etc. every item description, url & price.

Drop me a pm if you can recommend any free tools I can download / browser extensions you've used that work well.

Anything decent at the moment, just basic for Microsoft packages and connecting to iPods that?
