I like the "rejuvenating oldie" tag. The feature of the ageing juvenile is that I/we have never quite...

Oh I do keep my backups up to date. I'm a touch obsessive about backups. It would take multiple catastrophes to bring me down. Perhaps, I've overreacted to the press, or at least...

I can vouch for 1and1. I used it from around 2007 to 2010 so my experience is perhaps historical; but like Hugh (well his wife actually), I never had any problems with it and as regards this aspect...

That is sort of what I was getting at. Windows does not have a problem transferring files to a MS DOS (Fat) formatted disc, but I believe that Macs do with a size limit.
