Dropbox. Nice and clean, you can see all your files and quickly download onto your pc. Will synchronise too.

Google drive clunky, sky drive doesn't interface well with windows 7 at work [facepalm], not really tried iCloud.

For balance, I used Dropbox but eventually switched to sugarsync, which I love. Their apps for other devices are fab, and the way it integrates as a 'drive' on your laptop makes it so simple to use day to day

@AndrewD. No. They both use their own folder.

I use Dropbox, Google Drive and ASUS Cloud Storage. Mostly because I signed up to them all through various devices. Quite handy to have all my stuff backed up in multiple places though!

I'm using dropbox, too, and the sharing options are very useful for family/friends not on Facebook, and also for the rental inventory pics I had to take recently (without broadband, emailing pictures is a hasslesome business!)

Just bought a Sony Xperia phone and because of an arrangement between Sony and www.box.com, have been given 50 GB free (normally 5 GB). Deal is on for any Xperia phone until end December 2013. PAYG they start at about 50 quid for the Xperia Tipo (Android v4) from T-Mobile.

"Free for life" but I suspect that may change if box.com is bought by someone else... I paid 1p for 5 years of 500 GB Knowhow storage around 15 months ago (error in PC World online pricing!)... but have only recently had "unlimited" broadband so I can now try it out smile

Can copy and dropbox sync the same folder (i.e. double backups)?

Hope you don't mind niceguy, I just used your link to sign up to Copy

I use Dropbox too but more recently started to use Copy.com

In essence it's exactly the same as Dropbox but right now they are trying to build up market share so have an offer. Basically each user you refer you both get 5GB free.

So right now I have about 40GB free. If anyone wants to get free storage then use this link: https://copy.com?r=7O0zj9 and we both get more storage.

Operationally it's practically identical to Dropbox but I think the sharing options are slightly better.

Another fan of Dropbox. I just use it for transferring documents when I can't find my memory stick or between IOS and PC, rather than long-term storage.

Thanks, I am using it at the moment for free, have you upgraded?

Dropbox has been great for me for 5 years or more.

I nearly got the knowhow one from PC World/Currys but it has awful reviews. Anyone use a good one?
