Default Saving information temporarily


I have had an issue with my external hard drive. Someone has had a look at it and deemed it unusable again although they were able to recover my data (500gb). As i am still within warranty I should be able to get a replacement within a few weeks. I am just wondering is there a way to store my 500gb for a few weeks online? Free if temporarily? I don't know anyone around with an external hard drive to borrow and I cannot afford to buy another.

Depending on your internet upload speed, most likely uploading 500GB online somewhere (especially if you found some place that you could upload to for free) would be excruciatingly slow.
