Fact be said, there are just too many cloud solutions out there right now. They all promise great things of which sync your files to the cloud is the most common one. Let's list down the famous ones:

  1. Google Drive
  2. Dropbox

So which one to choose? There are quite a number of factors to consider. Let's start with the basics - the basic thing that we all want from the Cloud services is the file-syncing service. Important documents, pleasing memories and in some extreme cases - important evidences of certain life-events need to be synced. The importance of those files depends on you but that's the basic thing we need from a cloud service. But there are a lot more things we want. Below, we tell how OneDrive addresses them and excels at them.

Amount of Free Storage Space

So if you get a 20 MB attachment in your GMail, you lose 0.025 GB from your 15 storage in your Google Drive storage. With Box.com you start with 10 GB. Apple's iCloud - just 5 gigs.
