Actually, this account isnt mine. I mean , it is but not my details, my stepfather.. and this account will be desactivated soon probably . Well, i wont have treehouse again . I had treehouse before, but they blocked my account .. for 3.2.1 code break.. which they didnt even worote me what i did .. but im kinda happy as i step away from forum and i learned a lot so yeah xd i was a mod , but my learning wasnt so good. By the time , i learned how to step out form forum and learn so it helped me. I got independent. Before i did post every problem/challenge on forum and got answers, now its different :) i made progress. I still do sometimes about CSS, i just didnt practice enough for mobile nav bar.

Konrad,

A few quick, simple ways to save your files and make them accessible from anywhere are:

1) Create a (free) account on places like Bitbucket, Github, or even CodePen, and then you can either upload your files to your repos (on Bitbucket/Github) or copy/paste your code into different pens (CodePen), which then makes them accessible from anywhere so long as you can use the internet and access your accounts

2) Zip and email all your files/folders/assets to yourself. This is a very quick and easy method, and doesn't require learning anything new (i.e. git/mercurial or desktop clients for Bitbucket/Github)

3) If you have a Gmail account, you can upload things to your Google Drive

Any of these should work just fine for making it so you can access your files from any machine, so long as you have an internet connection and can remember your account login information!

I hope this helps.

If you can't fit all that you have onto a free Google Drive account, you could look into their paid options, though I'm not sure of those breakdowns. Alternatively, if you can't pay for it right now, and absolutely need to have everything up there, you could try breaking your files up into two 10gb chunks, and create two different gmail addresses, thus giving yourself two Drive accounts to work with?

Luckily, if you are able to pay for more space with Google Drive, it looks like you can get a 100GB plan for the low cost of $1.99/month. Much better than some of the alternatives out there!

I broke up some stuff from iOS and i hope , or i think that gaved me pretty much sapce . Im not gonna use iOS anyways as i foucs on web so it would fit but the line is pretty long, i hope it will get in todays night .

I though the same but its kinda odd how google did it. 15gb free but you can create more : p i though theres some hack in it : p like mobile phone number but there isnt i believe . So i believe that would be good :) thank you very much! Atm im doing the most important files, and hopefuly, they will get in .
