    Skydrive is the cheapest, not google drive. Skydrive metric is per year, not per month like the other two.

    Even with all the online storage now available, sharing files — especially large ones — can still be a problem.

    Now that Google Drive is finally here and you can use it, the first question is simple: Is it better than the cloud service you’re already using?

    OneDrive data are wrong.
    The free storage is reduced to 5 GB and for 2$ per month you get only 50 GB.

    Where the Hell are you getting “unlimited” Amazon Cloud Drive for “$12 – 60 per year” from?

    The largest plan Amazon offer is 1000GB and that’s £320 per year.

    To share a file in Google Doc desk top is click on the file, click Google, then Share, then the email you are sharing it with. You do not have to go to the web drive to do this.

    I really hate dropbox, I had 50GB storage plan there, and after a couple months it’s became a nightmare, I don’t know why they’re limited my internet speed to their website. I have fast internet speed 100 mbps with 1ms ping, but I only got 12kb/s from dropbox, even uploaded a 1MB files takes a year.

    Contact the support, contact the forum, no solution! For me personally dropbox is on my blacklist list. It’s horrible because I have hundreds files, and in the past their price is a little bit expensive.

    Now I’m using Google Drive, fast, almost zero downtime, and I can easily share a folder with my clients. Easy to use, great UI. I really love it.

    Onedrive is not bad, what I like is their price super cheap. But compare to Google Drive, the UI is confusing.

    Learn by mistakes now I only trust big company such as Google, Microsoft, and Apple.

    You should also try MyAirBridge. It is a gold middle way between storing and sharing. Their plans are pretty cheap.

    Man, you didn’t get anything right. 200GB of icloud storage is FOUR dollars not 48. And that’s Canadian. Even cheaper in the states. Jeez.

    Thanks for the article, although I think there are better options now then the providers mentioned above. I’ve tried many services but IMHO MyAirBridge is by far the best.

    Here’s a related question that needs answering: which of these services provides a facility whereby you can send somebody a link to access one of the files? In other words, which ones let you let people other than yourself access some of the data?
