    I use: Mega + pCloud and Gdrive.
    Mega - for files that aren't as important.
    Gdrive - for my photos and documents.
    pCloud - for different files.
    Backup OS and other important files are always stored on my external drive.

    For my work, (mostly documents and collaboration) I use Dropbox. Me and my family have a paid suscription of Mediafire (1TB) for update photos, videos and all our stuff. Recently, Mediafire deleted the old desktop app, but they said in their official blog that they are doing an all-new desktop app. I'll wait for that. Mediafire works as well as Dropbox.

    I use Dropbox Pro 1TB, its worth it for me. I like their clients better than google drive, one drive etc. File sync is much better as well.

    I also have Unlimited Google Drive business account, i hardly use it these days mainly because their client sucks in PC atleast.

    It took long, but a week ago I get my education account for Google Drive (unlimited). I replaced Dropbox because I almost had my 2GB full. I'm very happy with GDrive, I'm very surprised that mac app is lighter and faster than Dropbox's. But for me, for my use, GDrive is identical to Dropbox, both are fantastic services.

    Google Drive free for storing encrypted documents and stuff :)

    Nothing will ever go there unencrypted though

    I contacted recently with Mediafire, to ask them when it will be released the new desktop app that they said in their blog. Surprisingly, they answer me that they anr not plnning to release any app for windows and mac:confused::eek:.
    I cancelled my suscription and I moved the files to my 1TB onedrive account that the institution when I work give us. Very happy with this service at the moment.
    If you are planning to use mediafire, notice that ther are not any desktop apps until long...

    Sometimes I use Google Drive and, even if they say:"we have high security standards, encryption, etc...etc", I always use SecureMyBit to encrypt the files before uploading them to the cloud.
    This is the security from my point of view.
