    Do you prefer having your files on your computer or device or would you rather have them stored in the cloud?

    I prefer having a copy stored locally of my files but I can see the value of having your files stored in the cloud.

    I prefer OneDrive, but some files need to be local.

    I like Cloud, because it's there when I switch devices, which isn't that often but it does help with the switchover.

    I prefer locally, that's why I always get 64GB devices.

    Both for me.

    The most important ones are also on DropBox and OneDrive. The less important ones in GoogleDrive and Box

    I use everything
    iCloud for everything Apple, DropBox for all of my files and videos (I have 100GB on Dropbox), OneDrive for my business documents.

    I also use iTunes Match for music, and iCloud for all iTunes stuff..It works very well.
    If I want to switch to a new machine, everything is so much easier. There is no need to manually restore anything. Just connect to the cloud and all of your files are there.
    Of course, all of my files are stored on my Mac too..

    Like most of you, I use both but I'm beginning to appreciate the value of having local files available even more

    Cloud. I can access the files from any computer or mobile device. Plus you don't have to worry about recovering your files if something goes wrong. Also, wifi or cellular hotspot service is pretty much available everywhere so accessing files is easy.

    H-Data Recovery Master is not bad. I tried a lot of recovery tool, only H-Data Recover 95% of my lost files.

    I prefer Cloud. I love the idea of having all my files online where I can access them anywhere, on any device. I will store locally if I have to, but cloud for me, for everything.

    Definitely locally, makes it nice when phone is offline. I do love the cloud for backup though!

    I use both, I love how iCloud just works, however I do think that my favorite online storage service is Dropbox, lot's of apps support it and the share sheet for it on iOS is fantastic. Almost as if it acts like a file system for my iOS devices.

    ICloud yeah specially since I purchase anything on iTunes for my devices, Cloud will be forever and the size of storage is unlimited, I can remove my movies/tv shows after watching and re-download them anytime I need them again.
