How to Use
Dropbox only comes with 2GB of free storage, but you can get more storage by bringing new users to Dropbox.
Works the way you do
With SugarSync, you decide which folders you want to sync and where you want to sync them.
SugarSync works in the background so your most important data is
always backed up and available to you — regardless of your location or
the computer you are using. You can start editing a file on your office
PC and finish it on your Mac at home.
Sync to the cloud for offline file access
SugarSync continuously syncs and backs up files from your computer to your secure Personal Cloud.
You can edit files on your computer while it is offline and SugarSync
automatically syncs the changes the next time your computer is online.
You can relax with the confidence that you are always using the most
recent versions of your documents.
Sync shared folders for seamless online file sharing
Now when you collaborate with other people, your changes can be
synced between your computer and theirs. When teams share project
folders, changes made by one team member are automatically synced to
others on the team. You can share entire folders of photos with family
members, or share documents and files with your clients. Imagine the
Google Drive takes the tried and true Google Docs cloud-based
office software and adds simple, easy to use file storage to it. As
Google has continued to improve Drive, I've grown to quite like it.
Like Dropbox, Google Drive automatically syncs with the cloud so that
everything is consistent across all of your devices. Google Drive offers
15GB of storage that includes your email.
You say you want privacy for your cloud storage? Well, Mega
promises that, but I feel better about SpiderOak's chances of
delivering it. SpiderOak has no clue what you're storing. The client
software, which supports Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X in PCs, and
Android and iOS, encrypts everything before it hits SpiderOak's servers.
Just be sure to make a note of your password because SpiderOak can't
help you with that either. Offers 2GB free account.
Like most of the cloud services, SkyDrive lets you save, share,
and access files, but on most operating systems, you must use it
through a browser — IE by choice, but it will work with others.
However, SkyDrive does work hand-in-glove with the Windows 8 file
manager. It also works well in partnership with Microsoft Office. Like
Google Drive, it comes with its own cloud-based office software:
Office Web Apps.
Box's basic free version offers 5GB of free storage. You can sync
files between your Windows/Mac PCs and the cloud, and vice-versa with
the Box Sync program. Box also supports Android and iOS devices. It
does not, however, integrate with your file systems.
