    Is there a online storage that's just as good as Dropbox or better? Or is Dropbox the best online storage ? What's y'all opinion ? What do y'all use ? I've been using Dropbox for almost 2 years and I got 75gb storage and I found it it ends soon because I got it from promotions that was going on during that time so I heard once it ends my files delete is that true?

    I prefer Google Drive. I like the view option better than dropbox, and your initial free storage per email address is 15GB. What is also nice is that the IOS app allows you to toggle between google drive accounts so if you sign up with, say, 3 email accounts, you can access all 45GB of storage right from the single app.

    Yea I have a google drive account also but I don't use it as much as I use Dropbox. The 15gb of storage is unlimited right ? Like it isn't only for two years like how Dropbox does with some promotions

    Yes it is unlimited. That is one of the main reasons I left dropbox. I got sick of trying to build up my storage only to see it eventually get taken away from me again. Plus I truly like the much larger thumbnail view option of Google Drive.

    I am prejudice....I am a dropbpx person all the way. It does way too much and integrated into too many of my apps that I use daily that I can upload to dropbox to free space or keep safe.

    I like Dropbox for one main reason: a lot of apps are built with Dropbox connectivity. That helps a lot in not needing a computer to sync info with, like 1Password.

    I also use Google Drive. With my Gmail account, I like having 15GB of storage.
    I have the desktop app installed, and it syncs very well.
    All my photos, documents etc are stored there.

    Dropbox still has the best video streaming ever, and I stream a ton of video from there.

    The only problem I had with Dropbox, is storage.
    Unless your referrals sign up, you only have a mere 2GB to work with.
    They should start at 5GB like everyone else.
    Then offer more tiered plans for your usage needs.

    I use Dropbox and Box. The only difference between them for me so far has been how many apps have dropbox connectivity.

    I downloaded box. I like the way it is so far. It and seems like it uploads pictures faster than Dropbox.

    Same here. I use Dropbox primarily, but I limit my storage to documents so the small storage is a non-issue. I like Google Drive but there are some weird interactions with certain document types (something to do with Google's format or something). I have secured a 50GB Box account as well but have not dived into it at this time.

    Didn't see your original question answered about Dropbox deleting files. My Dropbox storage expired and my files were not deleted. I could not upload any more files, but my existing ones were still there.

    I prefer Dropbox over the others, mostly because of the unlimited file size (compared to box) and integration with a ton of different apps.

    Not sure what interactions you mean. But what I found strange in GD, is when I save photos.
    If I crop a photo in my camera roll, it somehow does not get saved in Drive the same way.
    The original photo appears as though I never cropped it.

    That's Apple's non-destructive editing at work

    I figured that once I saved directly to Drive from my PC.
    I think the issue is the interaction between the Drive app and IOS.
    I experimented with Dropbox and Box. And the issue is non existent only with Dropbox.
