Your Documents Online

I will start my BaeL course on the 24th of this month.
I am looking for a place online to store files.

I found that as I am working from different computers at the cyber cafe my USB is getting messy with all the documents I create in one computer and then in another.
I decided to save everything on my USB to avoid having different documents on the same subject. I learned the hard way that it was not a wise decision because once my USB got a bug and I lost all the content.

I saw then that my best option was to store my files online, if I get collaboration, which it does not seem to be the case for this first online course due to bad timing, then it will be easy to share those documents.
