Google Drive: 10 Alternatives To See

Dropbox, Box, iCloud, and now, Google Drive, have the most familiar names. But many alternative services satisfy a variety of storage, backup, and file-sharing needs.

It's not often a Microsoft product flies under the radar, but SkyDrive tends not to enjoy the same brand recognition as the Dropboxes and iClouds of the world--at least not yet. That could change with the full release of Windows 8, which promises tighter SkyDrive integration with Metro apps and on the traditional desktop via Internet Explorer. Check out Microsoft's comparison chart and it's clear who the company is going for: the personal cloud market, which poses some significant considerations for businesses. Exhibit A: SkyDrive offers 7 GB free, which bests each of its major competitors by at least 2 GB.

I agree with Oogwave (http://oogwave.com/)! After a lot of checking, I decided to use this tool and it's been six months using this tool. User friendly and easy to learn. A secure platform where we can store and share files.
