    Default Re: Which cloud storage services do you use ?

    I use several so as not to have all my eggs in one basket and to get additional storage by having multiple options.

    Amazon - Cloud Music storage, premium service.
    OneDrive - Personal files.
    Google Drive - Personal Photos; my devices send photos here automatically.

    Apple needs to provide more than 5GB if iCloud is to be taken seriously.

    I use Dropbox and MEGA the most. Box, Onedrive and Google Drive now and then cause they are mostly associated with their products.

    Only thing that bugs me about drive is that the photos aren't automatically stored in the drive app , but rather in google+.

    True, but no one uses Google+ so no one will ever see them. It's only for backup anyway. I still regularly download and organize them on my PC the old fashioned way.

    I love using Google Drive. And I don't know if you experience this or use Google+.
    I thought of giving Google+ a try, and it says it can upload all your photos from Drive.
    Yet, when it uploads the photos from Drive.
    It does not upload everything. For example, I have an album with 146 photos.
    It only uploads 60, thus me deleting my Google + profile, and not using it.

    Agreed, your photos and profile are only viewable if you choose that path.
    I downloaded Google Drive for the PC.
    And it syncs everything without a hitch. Like I said, I love Google Drive.
    It stores everything without the need of using several different cloud storage.

    Which files do you keep in what service, though. I'd think having that many options would get confusing.

    Default Re: Which cloud storage services do you use ?

    So right I got icloud, onedrive, Dropbox, box, and google drive going. I do want to trim this list down though since I'd think it would be too confusing keeping up with what I have in each of these services. I'm mainly looking for a good place(s) to back up and access my photos, pictures, and any documents I might have.

    Dropbox I have 6gbs, one drive I have 110gbs until march next year die to a bing rewards thing, box I have 50gbs due to that promotion, and google drive I have the regular 15gb.

    So I'm unsure which combination of services is best.

    Default Re: Which cloud storage services do you use ?

    I mainly use Google Drive and just got more storage for Dropbox.

    On a somewhat related topic, has anyone here stopped using the external hard drives and moved all their files to the cloud? I was going back and forth with the idea.

    Google Drive is my primary storage for everything.
    Although, I do use a Cruz Fit USB for a back up to my files.

    This thread got me thinking. I like to keep a secondary back up of all my files.
    While everything is on Google Drive, and my USB Cruz fit.
    It may be more convenient to maybe upload everything to either Box, or Dropbox.
    Then, I would not need to remember to save the files to the USB, nor be connected to a PC to do it.

    What files do you store in box?

    I wish I could get more Dropbox space, but I missed out on that wave if everyone banning together to do referrals. I only have 6 gbs on Dropbox.

    I've got a little over 6gb on dropbox as well. I rarely use my Box account and it's usually just the home of a few PDFs and other documents

    I now use Box for a secondary storage. I like how it integrates with Google Drive. I keep all my documents, and photos in both
    Not to mention Box gives you 50GB for storage.
    And because I have a Chromebook, Google Drive offers 100GB for 2 years. 😊

    iCloud for all my Contacts, Calendar, and Apple stuff. Google Drive for documents and stuff that come in through Gmail. That's all.
