    I use Dropbox (only rarely and mostly from my android devices when i want to save something when away from home, i then download it and move it elsewhere) 3 seperate Onedrive accounts for almost everything on my laptop especially if i have made a purchase and it's a download link that comes through to the email account it's tasked for, i.e : hobby, personal and other. I have also recently tried google drive which i liked so may use thata bit more.

    All accounts are the free versions

    I use OneDrive (Office 365) and Google Drive.
    The same as the feature that made me choose it.
    OneDrive: The feature is that share links can expire and it's easy to use. Google Drive: It is a part of my Google account and it's easy to use it as well.
    OneDrive: I use OneDrive for Business (1 TB of storage). I get it for free (school), but it would be paid. Google Drive: Free

    Hello,
    I'm using Dropbox, essentially because of Lan Sync. And because I was using it to transfer files between my ipad and my PC.

    OneDrive does not have file versioning.

    If you keep OneDrive files on local system with automatic sync enabled, then if you get hit with a ransomware your OneDrive can be encrypted too.

    I use Dropbox (with installed Dropbox App) for automatic storage and MEGA for manual storage. Dropbox has file versioning even in the free version.

    MEGA App is pretty much the equivalent of Dropbox with file versioning and even more storage for free, but MEGA has not made their login fully compatible with Edge browser yet. Also, Lastpass login to MEGA website will not work inside Edge. So I use MEGA as a dead-storage cloud where I place files that I wish to keep for the long term.

    OneDrive has file versioning for Office files, but that's all.

    Never used cloud storage as my upload speed until just recently has bee way to slow. I might reconsider it now but most likely I will stick to my portable Hdd'S.

    Dropbox (free), Mega (free), PCloud (lifetime subscription) Google Drive (subscription), Sync (subscription), Amazon Drive (subscription), Degoo (lifetime subscription), Onedrive (subscription), Zoolz (lifetime subscription) and a recent signup with Hubic for a trial. Why so many? Coz I don't trust any except Amazon, MS and Google to stay afloat in the long term. :D

    I use native syncing software for "minor" non critical data files and to backup photos from mobile phones. Duplicati is used for full data backups, obviously with AES 256 bit encryption
