I think I named all of the main ones I've heard of. I currently use Dropbox with only 2 gigs, which is pretty meh, I've considered using OneDrive or GoogleDrive (or what ever Google calls theirs now) but don't know if either is worth using over the other options

I use dropbox for everything. More recently I am kinda interested in creating a local NAS. Just so I can move all my files at once and it takes a few min.

Until then I'll continue with dropbox, it is just to easy to share files with everyone I need to.

I like Dropbox, I just wish it had larger storage without having to pay. 2 gigs isn't really enough for anything important, and the alternatives offer 15 gigs free, or most of them do anyway

Crashplan. It's technically a backup service, but you can access your data just like any other cloud storage service. I got a 4-year family subscription so I pay $9/mo for unlimited space. I have about 10 TB stored there.

That's pretty much the reason I stopped using Dropbox. I think it offers the best service, but the free space and general cost is just not worth it by comparison. Google Drive as you mentioned has a free 15GB, and it's only two dollars for 100. Dropbox on the other hand is ten dollars for 100.

Dropbox just doesn't stack up anymore.

OneDrive has the best webapps. Also I get 1TB of storage because I'm an Office 365 subscriber.

I found MEGA to be pretty good since it offers 50GB free per account.

I hate DropBox, I enter that stupid space race they had some time ago, registering with my university e-mail, we reached the goal for the biggest amount of space and I'm still waiting ti see the result of that.


Been using Google Drive for the past few years since it was still google Docs.

I like Dropbox, I have 58.5 gigs for free and it has the best software, IMO. Also, Google has enough of a monopoly already.

Google since it integrates really well with every device I own.
