My family wants to start hosting our photos/videos in the cloud so we can all easily access/save them across the globe (we're all scattered). Right now, the total of everything is about 60 GB and grows each year.

It seems after doing research the two best options are Crashplan or Amazon (as one of us is a prime member). Thoughts on choosing between these two? Or maybe any others? The two things I care about are
1 - The ability of multiple people to access the account
2 - It's easy to use (not all of us are as computer literate as others)

Thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Based on your needs, we assume you're looking for a cloud storage/access that your family can utilize from various locations? There are many to choose from including the ones you mentioned. PC Mag recently rated cloud storage sites in an article which you can read here (http://www.pcmag.com/roundup/306323/the-best-cloud-storage-providers-and-file-syncing-services). Do some googling and compare prices before you decide.

Of the two you mentioned above, I would probably choose Amazon especially if you are a Prime member and can save on price. Crashplan would likewise be OK.
