Personal cloud storage plans – October 2014
Posted on 20-Oct-2014 10:17 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


If you’re looking for cloud storage there are plenty of options. Most cloud storage providers offer a basic service for free. You may get by using these free services alone.

There’s no reason to choose just one provider. If you sign for all the free offers in this list you’ll have almost 100GB of storage at no cost.

There are good reasons to pay for personal cloud storage. In every case money buys you more raw storage capacity.

Paid plans can have other advantages. Some providers allow paying customers to store larger individual files — essential if you want to archive video footage. You might also get better support and other features.

Microsoft’s 1TB OneDrive plan stands out. It includes a subscription to Office 365. Although most people will look at that transaction the other way around: buy Office 365 and get 1TB of storage, If you use Microsoft software, it’s a killer deal.

The 1TB OneDrive plan is new since the last time I compared personal cloud storage plans. Apple and Google have also introduced larger plans.

I’ve personally tested all the services on this list — and with the exception of Mega and Box — use them all the time. None have presented me with serious problems although I have seen times when both Google Drive and OneDrive are temporarily offline.
