Microsoft in early November, 2015 decided to cut the total amount of free OneDrive storage space from 15 GB to 5 GB. In addition, Microsoft also decided to drop the 15 GB camera roll bonus. This made many free users enough reasons to abandon OneDrive and move to other cloud storage services. With storage costs going down and with the abundance of reliable cloud storage providers it’s not hard these days to find one.

Do you know which is the most secure, accessible, affordable and effective way to save your files? Unlike old days, it is not your hard drive, pen drive, CD or DVD that has been kept inside a safe locker! On the other hand, we will have to put cloud storage services in position of that answer, as those services help users to store and access files as well as documents from ANYWHERE around the globe with help of an internet connection.

Until the launch of Google Drive, Dropbox was considered (is still considered a strong competitor and I am going to stick with them) by many as the hands down winner in the cloud storage service provider. With some of its unique features which were not provided by the competition than, Dropbox was adopted by the masses soon. After the launch of Dropbox, some services did came up that offered quite similar feature sets, like SugarSync, but for some reason, they were not that much popular.
