2 Gigs of Online Storage for Free

Yeah, you heard that right. 2 Gigs for free.

Dropbox compared to OneDrive, and GDrive

Dropbox is extremely similar to the other online storage tools OneDrive and GDrive. It is fast, very reliable, and integrates well with PC's and smart devices. In our extensive testing we've found Dropbox to be the most reliable and full featured so we tend to use them the most. GDrive and OneDrive are nice and have some great features as well. There's no reason you can't use them all, which is exactly what we do on our computers.

One of the coolest features of Dropbox is the way that it can automatically sync the photos on your phone to your computer. If you install Dropbox on your phone and on your computer, and if you enable the automatic syncing, then any pictures that you take on your phone will automatically show up on your computer in a special folder. Dropbox is smart enough to only do this sync when you are on WiFi so it won't burn through your data plan.
