Looking for a good cloud storage service that you can use for free? If the answer to this question is a YES, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we are going to review some of the best free cloud storage services available today.

Computing solutions include outsourcing cloud servers and cloud services or acquiring a managed cloud.

Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive is at the top of our list of free storage solutions for all the right reasons. The service, combined with Amazon Cloud Player, is one of the most versatile and reliable out there. If you have a Kindle Fire or other Amazon readers, this is the cloud storage service for you.

Any song you purchase from Amazon – as well as books and videos – are stored for free. The 5GB of free cloud storage space you get upon signing up is just for storing files you upload from your mobile device or computer.

Since most of today’s cloud storage companies use Amazon’s cloud computing solution, you can expect the Amazon Cloud Drive to be just as fast and immensely secured.

Box

Box offers 5GB of cloud storage space for free as well. You get a very useful desktop software and a wide range of mobile apps to use. Sign up from one of the listed smartphones and you will get 50GB of cloud storage space instead of just 5GB. Should read: Register FREE 50GB cloud storage from Box.com.

Box is famous for its file-sharing capabilities. You can share files, collaborate on documents and stream multimedia files with ease from any of the Box apps. You can even activate the auto-upload feature and have pictures and videos you take using your smartphone instantly uploaded to the cloud.

Dropbox

It is difficult to talk about free cloud storage without talking about Dropbox. It is one of the oldest, most popular cloud storage services on the market. Dropbox may only offer 2GB of free cloud storage space to new users, but the amount of online storage space can be expanded all the way to 32+ GB by inviting friends and completing other simple tasks.

Dropbox is also compatible with a wide range of operating systems and will work nicely with your smartphones. Once the apps are set up, you can synchronize your devices and have your files available to you at all times without a problem. The web interface of Dropbox is just as intuitive as its mobile apps and desktop software. Download The Latest Version Of Dropbox.

Google Drive

Google is no stranger to cloud storage. Since the era of Gmail, Google has been offering users spacious inboxes through the use of cloud computing. Google Drive, combined with Google Play services, is one of the most interesting cloud storage solutions available today. 

You get 5GB of free cloud storage space from Google without having to sign up for a new account (assuming you already have a Google ID or a Gmail account). You can then combine the cloud storage space with other Google services easily.

Songs purchased from Google Play Store are stored in the Google Play portion of your cloud space for free; your music library will not influence the amount of cloud storage space you can use to store photos and documents. Picasa and other services can also be integrated easily.

Even better, you can send large email attachments, share files and collaborate on documents from a single, very intuitive interface. Google Drive supports file versioning, so reverting to older versions of the same file will not be a problem.

SugarSync, MegaUpload, iDrive, Mozy and several other free cloud storage services are also worth considering. They offer different amounts of cloud storage space and different sets of features. You can even use multiple free services and have a truly capable cloud storage solution without hassle. Recommended reading: 4 File Sharing Tools for Students.
