    Default Dropbox

    Anyone know of a service similar to Dropbox that supports camera uploads from mobiles? The more storage space the better obviously

    I use Plex, but you need a Plex Pass to use it. Storage is as large as I want it.
    Not cloud though, obviously. So Mega sounds like a great option if 50Gb is free from day one and permanent.

    Do not use Mega for important personal files/photos.

    Use Dropbox, GoogleDrive or Onedrive but Mega is one of the biggest havens for pirated material out there and as a service, if it goes the same way as Mega Upload it will get shut down in due course.

    Use it to store anything but the above as 50GB is superb and if it disappears into the ether one day, who cares.

    We've resorted to paying. It's for personal photo and video backup so worth it. If you can find a cheap deal on an annual office 365 subscription you get 1tb of onedrive storage included and the iOS and android apps do automatic backup and then I sync my home server to it.

    Mediafire originally gave you 50 gig, I have that at the moment, but new customers can get 10 gig on the free tariff

    Onedrive is the best for me as I got a windows phone and I was an original customer that kept the extended filesize

    Office 365 annual licence

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Pretty cheap for a TB of storage and of course you get office as well.

    If you got for 365 Home you get 5 licenses and thus 5tb!

    Amazon drive is another option. If you have a Prime account you get unlimited photo uploads for free. You only get 5GB for vids and files though. You can upgrade to unlimited everything for $60p/y.

    Personally I use Plex as well due to most services being hacked/taken down or they disappear.

    Another vote for Google Photos.

    If you can accept it compresses some of your images, the benefits far outweigh the con.
