Top 5 of The Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

Top 5 of The Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

7.0/7 rating (2 votes)

Since it launched in 2008, you have seen how little by little Dropbox has turned into one of the most used services when it comes to cloud storage. Nowadays, we can't live without visiting Dropbox at least once a day, whether it's for works or personal reasons.

Don't get me wrong, Dropbox is great, I use it every day but what if you want to live outside of the Dropbox box. What other could storage services be as good or even better than Dropbox? Let's take a look.

1. Google Drive

Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

Google Drive is clearly one of the most popular options. The tech giant has a service for everything, and that includes storing your files in the cloud. It offers you 15GB of free storage and that seven times more space than what you will get with Dropbox.

With Google Drive, not only do you enjoy the cloud storage service, but you also get to use other services as well. You can enjoy Gmail, Google+ and all the services that start with Google. You have drag-and-drop support, and there is an app for Google Drive for iOS and Android.

If you're willing to pay you can get 100GB for $1.99, 1TB for $9.99, 30TB for $299.99 per month.

2. BOX

Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

If you're looking for something that controlled by Google or Microsoft, then try BOX. It's the best alternative you can find that is not owned by the previously mentioned companies. You can count on almost everything you would expect from a cloud storage service. You can edit, save and share your files without leaving the app.

BOX is available on iOS, Android, and Windows, so no matter what you use, you can still use the popular service. Thanks to the sync feature you can have access to your files despite the mobile platform you're on. There is one thing I would change about BOX. I just don't like that 250 MB files size limit they have on each upload. If it's any consolation, you do get 10GB of storage for free.

The paid accounts go for:

  • 100GB for $6 a month with 2GB file size limit
  • Unlimited storage for $17 a month with a 5GB file size limit

3. OneDrive​

Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

OneDrive (formerly known as Skydrive) is another very popular choice when it comes to storing your files. With OneDrive you can enjoy a whopping 20GB of free storage. When you first sign up you only get 7GB of free storage but when you attach the Microsoft Office 365 Professional or Home subscription you get the full 20GB.

You can enjoy OneDrive on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Mac OS X. If you're looking for a paid account you can get:

  • 100GB for $1.99
  • 200GB for $3.99
  • 1TB for $6.99

4. CloudMe​

Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

CloudMe has it's own virtual desktop and offers its users 19GB of free storage.The individual file space limit is of 150MB, but a great feature makes up for it. With CouldMe you can sync specific files to specific devices. A feature many will love since you'll never confuse your files and folders ever again! You can use CloudMe on all major OS and devices.

For paid accounts, you can get:

  • 1 € for 10GB with support
  • 4 € for 25GB
  • 30 € for 500GB

5. SugarSync

Best Cloud Storage Alternatives to Dropbox

Last but not least you have Sugar Sync. With this cloud storage service, you get 5GB of free storage and the possibility of streaming media to your devices. With SugarSync, you can easily sync files to certain devices and folders. This service has a better interface than Dropbox, just in case that's a must for you. If 5G of storage is not enough for you, you can get more space by referring someone to SugarSync.

Each referral gets you 500MB, so start bringing some people!

Conclusion

We all have different needs when it comes to what a cloud storage service should have. Hopefully, you will be able to find the right service for on this list and start enjoying its features. What cloud storage service are you currently using? Let me know in the comments!

I can never get enough of tech in general, whether it's Android or web apps, but helping others solve their tech problems also brings great satisfaction. I carry a device wherever I go and I'm always connected. Life without Internet just sounds too scary to me. :-).
