One of the safest ways to store your files and have them readily available whenever and wherever you want them is by storing them in a cloud storage. Using cloud storage services means you’ll have more space on your PC or Mobile phone local storage and it’s definitely more convenient than carrying a hard drive around. It also makes it easier to share files with other people.
Most cloud storage services will offer you some space for free, but if you want more you’d have to pay some token, especially for enterprise uses.
