I recommend Jottacloud they claim it is the world´s safest cloud. I guess when it comes to privacy it very well might be.
As they are hosted in Norway, Patriot Act is not valid here, and your files are safe from snooping governments.
This is of course for those who cares, I am just impressed with the transfer speed in both directions compared to some of the others listed that I have tested.

Very good, but one question, is it encrypted storage, as well as during transfer ?
I did notice it offers 5GB free thats nice of them
EDIT
Quote from the Service:
Jottacloud is a cloud storage service for individuals and companies that lets you backup, synchronize, store and share files from all your devices. The uploaded data is protected by one of the worlds strongest privacy laws, with all your data stored in Norway. (END)
It mentions nothing of encryption during transfer or during storage, privacy laws
are great, but almost useless if the data remains unencrypted.

i'm frequently using these services:

www.dropbox.com
www.hubic.com/home/
www.pcloud.com/de/
www.box.com/de-de/home
....and of course "Google Drive" and "OneDrive".

I will also create an account at jottacloud (see POST #02 and thx for this tip @woodrowbone)

I also have a local NAS drive, that is possibly the best solution when you need all you private data
from home on mobile devices. I also try not to upload sensitive/private data to any cloud services
i mentioned in the list above.

Well I understand the purpose of cloud backup to make it secure and well encrypted however at the end of day, a matter of how the product advertise to make user convincing use the service.

Which why OneDrive, Gdrive or even Dropbox manage to gain the part; of course you will be the judge when it comes to their security enhancement.

I use dropbox as I have my education account

Gdrive for fun, no real use

onedrive: very disappointed, badly coded apps in android and windows as they are super slow and buggy compared to the rest, at least for me

mediafire: good but now they removed desktop syncing app so now Im no longer using it as the primary backup solution as before

everything is free, I dont care about privacy, I dont wanna pay. I just ise them to store my study documents

dropbox is top quality service. If you work on a file, you can be sure you will always end up with the latest version, and if dropbox is unsure which version is the latest, it will mark it as "conflicted version".
So you will not lose your work!
And if you restore your system from an image, also then, dropbox is smart enough to give you the latest version of your files.
so for files that you are actively editing, use dropbox and you won't be sorry.
store all your old stuff somewhere else.
