    Would it be better to stick with a 50 GB Box account, or 15 GB OneDrive account? Which one do you prefer? Why?

    That feature's lacking in Box. I have to manually upload everything.

    I'm with Karen. Find a way to use both. Heck, there's nothing wrong with having the same items on both. I see it as extra protection.

    What if you have 20 GB of files that need storing?

    Of course, you can't have the same data with the two storage services you mentioned because one holds more than the other. My point is this, instead of choosing ONE, take advantage of both. The only stuff I keep on OneDrive are photos and videos. Dropbox has my docs, manuals, business letters, bill receipts, etcetera. Evernote keeps various receipts, notes, thoughts, wish lists, clipping, etc. I don't have anything on Google Drive, but that could change. I also have backups of everything on my external drive.

    I'd probably have an easier time deciding if I didn't have 50 GB. Thanks for the detailed response D.

    I use OneDrive for everything and have over 150gb of storage. I got rid of Box, Dropbox and Drive. I use Office for iPad and my Windows 8.1 machine and OneDrive is much better choice.

    Hopefully more apps will integrate the OneDrive API's into their apps.

    I prefer OneDrive because I use outlook.com. I also have 100 gb of storage. You can earn it free for a year by signing in when you search. Another reason, It works well for me and I just like it.

    I prefer OneDrive over Box, 'cause Box is very slow, laggy and it just doesn't feel as convenient as OneDrive

    Same here, I use DropBox, OneDrive, GoogleDrive and Box at the same time. Dropbox and OneDrive are both for my pictures and Google Drive are for other documents. But Dropbox contains all data which can be found in the other three. I have over 56GB storage on it

    I use Box because I got it free with 50 free gb of storage. I think that was a limited time deal. It was then. They may have changed it.

    I think I will drop Dropbox, and use OneDrive and Google Drive.
    I am tired of having to compete for space on Dropbox. Nice thread.

    I had it, but I deleted my account to switch to Dropbox. I also use Google Drive for documents.

    I use Onedrive. Mainly because I have Office 365. When you sign up for it you get 1TB of space automatically. To me it's a hard deal to beat considering you get both for $15 a month. Plus you can share your subscription with someone and they will get their own separate 1TB of space.
