Cloud Storage – Some free options

So, cloud storage now seems to be taking off since the take up of mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, android phones and tablets.  Where once upon a time we may have used an ‘online disk drive’ to store things online and retrieve them from another PC, now we need more, the ability to sync changes to those files across the devices rather than just pull them down for reference for out and about.  And so cloud storage arrives.

There are a few excellent free cloud storage providers out there which will sync a directories on your PC or Mac to your portable devices.  With Apple Store and Google Play apps to download to access your account you are set for always having access to your home PC files.

Here are three that I would recommend which offer a good amount of storage and more importantly the synchronisation ability across the devices.

Sugarsync

5Gb Free Space.  Free sign up.

Offers you the ability to share your files between PC, Mac, Android and iOS devices.

Dropbox

2Gb free space and free sign up.

Always have your stuff when you need it with @Dropbox.

Again synchronise your files across all your PCs, Mac, Android and iOS devices.

CX.com

Get a whopping 10Gb of free space to start, and begin synchronising across all your devices.

CX.com

All three of these services work in a similar way, and used at the same time can give you a hugh 17Gb of synchronised file space across your devices or for those essential backups.
