  1. Good collections of free dropbox alternatives.
    Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Its welcoming knowing all the alternatives to Dropbox. My mind always go to Google Drive and OneCloud. I guess there are other reliable and safe alternatives. Mega’s review fascinates me. I am going to test it to know how it works. Thanks for sharing!
    This comment shared in kingged as well.

  3. great post, thanks

    i love it so i make it in arabic in my blog

  4. Hey Muminur,

    Nice collection of alternatives for dropbox. The only one I’ve heard of was Google Drive which I also use for work. Now Mega is unheard of. 50 Gig Free space for your pleasure is something you can’t beat thus far! Thanks for sharing and I hope you’re having a great week!

    • Hi Sherman
      Actually Mega was founded with the thoughts of giving top security and protecting our privacy. I think this is great and they have also told that they will pay $$$$ if anyone can break their security. So I think Mega stands best as dropbox alternative. Most of us already know about Google Drive as usual another Google Product.

  5. Hello,

    We do use Dropbox and Google Drive on the work and never ever actually thought or tried other 3 alternatives. Thanks for mentioning them out, Munna! We now know what to try as alternatives to Dropbox and Google Drive!


  6. thank you very much

  7. Thanks for the great collection of sites! I am going to check a few out. I had never used any of them before.;)

  8. Great list. I use both Dropbox and Google Drive. Most people have a Google account already, making it super easy to sign up and use Google Drive.

  9. Very useful – I recently signed up for cloud storage and was limited on the amount. I couldn’t even back up all the existing files on my pc., which is why I signed up for it. I’ll definitely look into these alternatives

  10. This was a great list. I appreciate how you are able to make my life easier by comparing the alternatives to dropbox. It is a little expensive, but I have used, and it was secure, but it worked brilliantly.

  11. I generally use google drive too, but thanks for these suggestions!

  12. Thanks for the tips! I love using google drive for my storage.

  13. We’ve been very happy with Google Drive. My husband actually upgraded to more space so he can use it for all of his work files. It’s so nice to have everything on our local computer as well as on the cloud! (And being able to access it anywhere is pretty convenient as well.) I hadn’t heard of the other options, but will pin this post in case it helps someone else. Thanks!

  14. We’ve only used cloud storage on a very limited basis, due to our small data cap, but it’s nice to know what we should look at when that eventually (hopefully) gets lifted. Thanks for the info!

  15. Thanks for sharing. I’m going to ‘pin’ this info to save for later!

  16. Great tips. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Great post! I am not very tech savy but you explained everything so it made sense to even me! I really need to learn about all this stuff so I don’t fall behind in technology! Thank you for sharing!

  18. I use google drive & I love it. I ran out of space of dropbox almost immediately after signing up and was not interested in purchasing more.

    • Hi Katisha,
      You can invite your friend to dropbox to get additional free space. Myself got some GB more by doing so. On the other hand, Google drive is also nice option.

  19. This is a great list. I’m definitely keeping this list on hand in my blogging file folder.

  20. This is a very timely post for me as I find myself switching between computers a lot recently. I’ve used Dropbox and been happy, and also use Google Docs, but find it sometimes annoying that the programs (excel vs. speadsheets) are slightly different. Thanks for introducing me to a few new ones.

  21. Ohh, I’m definitely a Google Drive fangirl. I love that I can just drag and drop files from my computer into the Drive folder and it automatically uploads. SO awesome. Thanks for sharing these other alternatives, too! I’ll have to definitely check them out when I get a chance!

  22. Google is definitely my favorite one on this list. I use it every single day. ๐Ÿ™‚ I do love this list. I think that a lot of people want an alternative to dropbox.

  23. I’ve used Google Drive for one of my classes and for sharing between members of a blog team or magazine team, but I didn’t realize there were so many other options out there. I do worry about the possibility of security breaches with cloud storage but it is handy at times to have access to something from more than one location or device. Thanks for sharing these!

  24. I have never heard of a few of these but I do use Google Drive and love it. I will have to look into a few of the others as well.

  25. Wow, so much to learn these days. I’m not very tech savy. Thank goodness for my husband. I heard of some of these, but others were new. Good read. Thanks.

  26. That’s a good collection. I like to use Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon Cloud, and recently started using Dropbox for blog and book related things. I used google drive the most while I was in school. I am more of a frequent Amazon Cloud user now as well as Dropbox. There are so many different ways available to store your files. I like using cloud drives when I know I will be traveling and need access to various files.

  27. I just started using dropbox. This is very informative! Thank you!

  28. Thanks for the terrific list. I’m always looking for ways to store data from my website and now you’ve given me a few new ideas!

  29. You can never be too careful and put the important stuff in multiple places. Thanks for the summaries of the different options.

  30. I was given a Nexus 9 recently, and I have found I’ve been prone to using the Google Drive stuff.
    Dropbox is great, but I’m just loving the ease of using Google Drive.
    Love all the other suggestions, too!

  31. I hadn’t heard of the other ones besides Google Drive that I use all the time. Thank you so much for sharing these resources because one never knows when they are going to need them.

  32. I love dropbox and also use Google Docs as a great alternative as I can work in and out of my spreadsheets from anywhere! Thanks for noting the other alternatives!

  33. I’ve always loved DropBox and it did save me a couple of times. However it got very expensive for me as I got more to store. Thanks for sharing these alternatives.

  34. I have never tried dropbox but I do love Google drive. Good to know that there are other alternatives as well. Thank you for sharing.

  35. Thank you for these alternatives. I’ve been using Dropbox for years, as well as Google Drive and OneDrive. Going to look into the ones you have listed as well.

  36. Thanks for the great links. Had never thought outside the drop-box before. (I know but I couldn’t resist). ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. This is really good information. I only recently started using Dropbox and have not fallen in love with it. I do love how easy it is to share files on Drive so will probably stick with that for now.

  38. Thank you for sharing these. My husband and I have been using Dropbox for quite some time now, but these certainly do look like better options. I’m glad I came across your page.

  39. I have both Drive and Dropbox but I prefer Drive for my needs. Thanks for the other alternatives though, I didn’t know they existed

  40. Thanks for this article. Dropbox has always been kind of confusing to me now it makes sense.

  41. Hi:
