Today, we generate an enormous amount of data via so many sources. Whether its a movie, audio or docs, we need to save it all on our hard-drive. Most of the data is so important for us to lose. But because of some reason we might lose our data. If you are a frequent user of other user’s pen-drive or connect other alien devices to your computer, then there are chances that your system may get corrupt by virus and unfortunately your data too!
If you have saved any important data in your Personal Computer, and for some reason you needed to format the system, then also you might lose the important data. In these possible scenario, how you are going to prevent the data from getting corrupt or deleted? Is there any solution?
Yes, there is a solution! Saving your important data into the cloud. Generally, most of the giant companies offer cloud space. Some companies offer freemuim packages too! Here are some companies which you can trust with your data.
What is Freemium? – A service which offered for free, but for using entire functionality or space you need to pay amount.
You can go with most famous cloud system, which is Google Cloud. Google comes with the Mobile app and the desktop app too! You can simply go to the Google Cloud website and sign-up for the free plan. For the basic plan Google offers 15 GB of space for each Email ID. If you would like to jump to the paid plan, then you can start with 100 GB . You will be billed monthly at $1.99 [Dec, 2016 Pricing].
Yes! Amazon also deals with the storage facilities. You can simply create the account with Amazon Drive and get unlimited space for your pictures only. If you want to save other than pictures then Amazon offers only 5 GB space for the storage for music, video and other files. If you would like to go with unlimited space for everything, then you can sign-up for their yearly based subscription which will be billed yearly at $59.99 [Dec, 2016 Pricing]. Amazon also offers free 3 month for unlimited package, you can get advantage of it too!
If you are searching for Google Drive alternative, then Dropbox is the answer. Dropbox is very similar to Google Drive’s features and functionality. You simply go to Dropbox website and sign-up for the free plan, which includes 2 GB of free space. It seems like less than any other cloud storage companies, but there is a catch. You can extend your 2 GB space up to 16 GB if you invite your friend to use Dropbox. If you want to go with their paid plan, then it starts with $8.25 per month with 1 TB space.
There are more websites like above mentioned websites. You can also go with Microsoft Skydrive, Mozy Stash, Bitcasa etc. But we would like to personally suggest above platforms for your online storage. Because recently we heard and confirmed the news of copy.com. It has shut down its online storage services. So, the users of copy.com website were looking for the alternatives. Our suggestion is, only go with those companies which can at least run for next 50 years.
If you like our suggestions, then please let us know how we are doing.
