Most Internet users have one or more storage services, including everyone with an account GoogleGooglewho have a Google Drive space, and account holders MicrosoftMicrosoftwhich automatically have the OneDrive storage service.
The most popular Cloud accounts
There are a number of online storage providers. All have a free offer including more or less gigabytes, a vitessevitesse interesting transfer, and secure online storage. Here are 5 of the most popular cloud storage services on the market.
If you have a Google account, you automatically have the Google Drive service. With a free 15GB offer with no time limit, Google Drive is one of the providers offering so much space for free. Another strong point of the service, its office tools (Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides and Google Forms) allow you to edit documents without having to leave its interface. It also promotes collaborative work by allowing its users to share files or complete folders with ease. Although your storage space is accessible directly from a NavigatorNavigator web, dedicated mobile applications are available for download for more ergonomic mobile use.

The free version of Dropbox offers 2 GB of online storage space, expandable up to 8 GB if you promote the service and become a sponsor of other users. Paid versions offer more features than secure storage. They allow file backup and recovery, versioning, file sharing, etc.

You must therefore manually transfer your data from one account to another, by downloading your files to your computercomputer, to import them into the other space. This considerable loss of time and the risk of losing your files due to improper handling can be avoided by adopting a dedicated cloud migration and management solution.
There is some software that allows you to centralize the management of your storage spaces in the cloudcloud, from a single interface. Let’s take a look at one of them: Wondershare InClowdz.
