Putting your documents, photos, music, and other data into the cloud lets you get your files no matter which computer or mobile device you’re using. It’s also a convenient way to back up. But choosing the best cloud storage provider is a tough decision, there are so many options online now. So we list the top best Cloud Storage taking their service for speed, reliability, security, ease of use, cost and their support into consideration.
Top 1: Dropbox
Dropbox is one of the only services to offer clients for Linux and Blackberry, alongside the usual Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS standards. There’s an official Windows Phone app too. The free Basic account comes with a paltry 2GB of storage. You can still upgrade to the 1TB plan for £7.99 per month if you think 2GB is not big enough for you, but Dropbox offers 500MB of additional free storage for each friend you get to sign up to the service – with a limit of 16GB.
Top 2: Microsoft OneDrive
The function of OneDrive (previously SkyDrive) is similar to Dropbox, with apps available to Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and of course Windows Phone users. It also offers 500MB of additional free storage for each friend you get to sign up to the service.
Top 3: Google Drive
Part online collaborative office suite, and part cloud storage platform, Google Drives offers everything you need to stay productive. Google Drive also has downloadable desktop programs that enable file syncing.
Top 4: Box
Anyone can sign up for a free individual account on Box, but the service’s endless list of sharing and privacy features were built specifically for business and IT users. Beyond the basic cloud storage setup, where you can store just about any kind of file, Box lets you share files with colleagues, assign tasks, leave comments on someone’s work, and get notifications when a file changes.
Top 5: Mega
Mega puts its security credentials front and centre. Unlike some of its rivals, this service provides encryption in every part of the process. So anything you send to the cloud is encrypted locally, on-route, and on the destination server.
Top 6: Amazon Cloud Drive
Amazon Cloud Drive has been around for a few years, but the company introduced new storage plans in March 2015; one just for photos and one for all other kinds of files. Neither plan is free, but both have three-month trials. Unlimited Photos is available for free for all Amazon Prime members or anyone with a Fire device. If you don’t have a Prime subscription or a Fire phone or tablet, you’ll need to pay $12 per month for the storage.
Top 7: Copy
One of the best features of Copy is how it handles shared folders — you split the space with the people you share a folder with. For example, if you have a 20GB folder that’s shared among four people, that folder only takes up 5GB of space in each person’s Copy account. That’s different from Dropbox, where the entire size of a shared folder counts against your storage limit.
Top 8: Apple iCloud Drive
It’s a good service for avid Apple app users, but at $19.99 per month for 1TB and only 5GB free, it’s expensive and not the easiest service to use. The baked-in features that work seamlessly with iOS and Mac OS X are useful, however.
Top 9: Knowhow Cloud Storage
Knowhow is a service offered by UK retailer Currys PCWorld, but it’s really LiveDrive rebranded. We’ve heard many good reports about the reliability of LiveDrive, so that’s a good start, as keeping your data safe is the whole point of signing up to a service such as Knowhow.
Top 10: MediaFire
Mediafire might be a new name to many, but the Texan company has been around for nearly ten years, starting off as a file sharing service.
