So I created my list of my 7 favorite FREE online storage sites. The free storage size varies from 2GB to a whopping terabyte for images by Flickr. i am a strong believer of not putting all eggs in one basket and these various online storage sites allow you to do this.
- If you already have an Amazon account, you already have a Cloud Drive.
- Amazon gets you started with 5 GB of free storage
- Box lets you store all of your content online, so you can access, manage and share it from anywhere.
- Box gets you started with 5 GB of free storage
3] Copy (affliliate link)
- Copy is a new to me site to store your content online.
- Copy gives you 15 GB of free storage to start and by selecting the affiliate link both you and I will earn an extra 5 GBs for the completed referral!
4] Dropbox (affiliate link)
- Dropbox was my first online storage site and I am very happy with it.
- But in today’s world the initial free storage of 2GB is kind of small. You can get more storage by referring others to Dropbox.
- Flickr, the online photo storage site, just recently increased the free storage limit by a huge amount.
- You get an actual terabyte for free. That’s a lot of photos to share and enjoy in their original, brilliant quality.
- If you already have a Gmail account you automatically also have a Google Drive account with 15GB offree storage.
- The storage is broken down as follows:
Google Drive – Store files up to 10GB each. Anything you create with Docs, Sheets, or Slides won’t use up any of your storage.
Gmail – Attachments sent and received in Gmail as well as your email messages use your storage
Google+ Photos – Photos bigger than 2048×2048 pixels use your storage. Everything smaller than that is free.
7] Sky Drive
- Like with a Gmail account, if you have a Hotmail account you automatically have a Sky Drive with 7GB of free storage
I would like to hear from you about your expriences with online storage. Please leave a comment below.
