    I love Google Drive except for the fact that you cannot sort photos by date taken. That just blows my mind and "drives" me nuts. How do you not have that option? Because of that I haven't made up my mind between OneDrive or Google Drive. Will probably go with OneDrive out of spite over the sorting... or lack there of by Google.

    With the recent price drop in Google Drive, I think I'm going to move all my files from Dropbox ($9.99/month for 100 GB) to $1.99/month for 100 GB.

    I am currently mostly utilizing Dropbox with some slight usage of Google Drive. I will be transitioning over to Google Drive though. $2 a month for 100 gbs of space? Why not. Isn't like Google already has access to my life anyway...

    I have accounts in a few places. I use iCloud and Dropbox mostly, but I also have stuff on Box.net, Google Drive, and OneDrive.

    One problem with Google Drive.
    Saving your photos there is easy, sharing is not.
    It is like Google +, the recipient needs a Google account to open your photos.
    I use the Picasa app by Pixite for saving and sharing photos.
    It works beautifully , but from what I have been reading.
    Google will be killing off Picasa, and transitioning to Google+.

    Without the need to start a second thread. I have one question.
    Why doesn't Dropbox have a grid view for your photos?

    There doing there own thing called carousel. But maybe that's not a good reason or the answer.

    I tried carousel, and wasn't impressed with it. It's no different than just going to the photo segment in the Dropbox app.
    Your photos are not all in one place, they are spread out according to where and when.
    I keep my photos in seperate folders according to category.
    It would be a little easier if they appeared that way in the grid view of carousel or the photo view.

    Dropbox is my primary camera roll backup service and all the pictures from my PC are on it.

    Box for documents which aren't to important

    Google Drive is for backup of the most important files on Dropbox

    and OneDrive is my secondary backup for the iPhone Camera Roll

    I love redundancy

    It's called being wise. I use Dropbox, Google Drive, and a flash drive to back everything up.
    Never a good idea to keep your eggs in one basket.

    Hi - thanks for this post. Led me to check out and try Spideroak. Yes, I'm a little late to this party but after many happy years as a Dropbox user I thought it was time to try a possible step up regarding privacy options. So, +1 for Spideroak!

    I use MS OneDrive at present. May make a change since I got a note from them that the free storage is dropping to 5GB

    I'll still use the 5gb of free space. Mostly for some large videos that won't go on Box. I hate my 30 gb is going to 5. Fortunately, I haven't got 5 filled up yet.

    I mostly use it for storing photos. I didn't take a lot before but that has changed in the last week. Lol

    I use Box for most photos and small videos. Dropbox for some photos and my 1Password sync. Duplicates on OneDrive along with a few large videos.

    OneDrive.
    It's multi-platform, and now that they added the "Copy to OneDrive" on the shared menu, my life is made so much easier when I use my SE.
