Top 5 best free cloud storages

Cloud storage has over the past few years changed the way individuals and companies work, cloud storage which just a part of loud computing, allows you to store your data over a network of online servers and be able to access it anywhere in the world.

From my personal experience, I would advice anyone to use cloud storage for even their most sensitive documents, since cloud storage has proven to be safer than a personal computer.

Simply think of situation where your iPad or a laptop with all your personal information is lost. Anyone can easily retrieve all the information from your hard disk in a just matter of minutes.
