I am a user of the following FREE online cloud services:
- Dropbox – 2GB
- Box.net – 15GB
- pogoplug – 5GB
- Google Drive – 5gb
- Skydrive – 25GB
- iDrive – 5GB
- Sugarsync – 5GB
Note: You can purchase additional storage space.
Box.net is my repository for mobile phone app and game files – mostly java apps and games – which I share to everyone (it is available for download). It is my first cloud storage experience. I have files here which I uploaded way back in 2006.
I’ve been a Dropbox user for quite sometime now. I’ve used it to sync some files across my office laptop to my personal laptop and home desktop. I was only able to use 20% of the 2GB free space. Now I’m using Google Drive – which offers 5GB free space, to sync my active office and personal files across different devices and gadgets including my Android smart phone and tablet.
I was introduced to Pogoplug when I reviewed the Buffalo Cloudstation. I’m using it to sync my pictures. I like this more because the Pogoplug Android app shows a thumbnail of the pictures unlike other cloud service app for android devices. It also asks you what folders in your android device you want to sync.
So I still have Skydrive with 25GB free, iDrive and SugarSync with 5GB each. I might use skydrive as backup for my other files (tons of office files) then iDrive and SuagrSync just on stand-by in case I will need to share some files.
How about you? How do you use your FREE cloud storage?
