OneDrive by Microsoft
If you’re not familiar with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage facilities, then you’re busy missing out. It’s taken a few years to build, but Microsoft has extended OneDrive into a reliable and solid cloud service that’s useful. This cloud service gives a user 5GB of free cloud storage when they setup their OneDrive account, and when they subscribe to Office 365, they receive 1TB of online cloud storage.
With OneDrive you are able to synchronize your data and media across multiple devices and keep a copy of everything on the cloud itself. OneDrive for Windows works by letting the software setup an individual OneDrive folder to your File Explorers navigational pane, you can then drag and copy data, files, or folders to be synchronized with your OneDrive storage space in the cloud. It’s easy to configure and setup OneDrive.
If you want to setup OneDrive, you will have to sign up for a Microsoft account at microsoft.com/en-us/account
