Looking for an alternative to google drive which has good file storage capacity for a reasonable price , and is easy and not clunky to use .
What about Dropbox? Windows 10 also comes with OneDrive
I use drop box.
I also have iCloud storage for my phone where you get 5gb free, but they keep emailing me asking to pay 79p a month for 50gb because I have used it all
I’ve got OneDrive but there is no clear way to upload folders to it . I need something that’s clear and straight forward to use with good storage space and reasonably priced . One drive fails on first 2 .
Dropbox is pretty easy to use, you basically open it and drag the files there
Dropbox basic at 2gb is too little storage, but £7.99 p/m isn’t exorbitant for an upgrade to 2tb.
I cloud is cheaper it seems but I don’t want to have to upload software to my laptop in order to use it . Also I don’t have an Apple ID ,
I’m kinda old-fashioned and use an external usb drive. I don’t feel comfortable using cloud storage for my personal files for cyber security reasons.
Currently I have a flash/thumb drive or whatever you call it . I had one of those large external drives just over a decade ago . I had a load of music on it which I lost when the drive took up permanent residence in crap city . That made me once bitten twice shy.
I have two usb drives, a primary and a backup, that I periodically plug in to backup my files.
I got a old computer I keep offline to do accounting and private stuff on
Why do you keep using online? Why dont you get an external hard drive or upgrade your set up?
I’ve explained that . My laptop has good storage space , but I want to be able to transfer stuff when I move from this laptop to another . I’m not willing to put stuff on an external hard drive only to lose it because the hard drive malfunctions .
I have Google Drive, Dropbox, and a thumb drive. When my laptop died and I lost a few chapters of my novel, I decided to not leave anything to chance again.
