Top Free Online Storage Services


As more people prefer to save pictures ,docs and files online than on the hard disk, we look some of the free and paid versions of online storage or cloud service.

cloud-storage

  1. SKY drive : Microsoft provides 25 Gb of free space(Microsoft and Free what s the catch !) for storing your files online and the best online storage available right now ,you can create folders and also assign permission as public ,friends or only you. There is file limit of 50mb per file but that can be overcome by uploading files to SkyDrive through Windows Explorer itself through Glneadit – it’s just like mapping a folder on the network drive.
  2. Adrive : This service provides you the maximum file storage capacity of 50Gb without any cost for individual users ,they also have paid versions upto 10TB storage which is the only storage which also provides FTP. Adrive doesn’t have a file limit so it’s easy to store your videos with huge file size.
  3. Google Docs : Google has finally allowed storage of videos, pdfs, ppts and docs with only 1GB space (pretty strange Gmail is offering 5 GB space) with file size limit of 250 MB. Looks like Google docs will increase its free storage space once chrome OS is available .The paid version of Google docs costs only 5$ for 20 Gb per year and you can have a maximum of 17TB at $4,096 per year

There are many other services like box.net(2Gb free), dropbox, Idrive(10GB if you share your gmail contacts else its 2Gb) cloud which provides cloud services.
IMP: Its advisable to select only reputable brands for saving files online or you might end up losing your data as some had experience with xdrive, also remember cloud technology is still in its nascent stages.

    Found this post at Blog Interact. I guest write for a Tech & Gadget site, so it caught my eye. Do you ever have or write posts on CDN storage? Sarah

    Sure, the ADrive FREE account gives you 50GB, but the FREE account doesn’t offer SSL encryption when transferring your files… so keep that in mind when uploading…

    Dropbox will give you 8GB only for edu mail domains. Box.net gives 5GB instead of 2GB. All information above is for online storage services, not cloud. Cloud is when you save file and it is stored automatically on online storage service without additional syncronizing. I would say The article is shame on author. People, He is feeding you with wrong information, every step.

    In conclusion, Box Net offers some very good competition for the other big name sites online file storage there.
    They have worked to achieve a highly functional user interface and plenty of features that make it all come together.
