In today’s multidevice world, cloud syncing and storage services are practically a must-have, as they allow you to pick up where you left off no matter which PC, phone, or tablet you’re working on. Microsoft’s SkyDrive is thoroughly intertwined with Windows 8.1, but if you’re using Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP, be sure to grab the desktop app for your cloud service of choice to ensure that your files travel with you.
OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox drastically increased their available storage in 2014, while simultaneously sending prices plummeting. Heck, OneDrive and Google Drive rolled out unlimited cloud storage to Office 365 and Google Apps subscribers, respectively. Box has as well. That’s better than a hard drive in the sky.
