5 One of two best cloud storage options

This is my first choice even though it has a lower sized free usage tier. (Currently 2GB as compared to SugarSyncs 5GB) Used in conjunction with BoxCyrptor, it becomes a fairly secure method of handing files over to other computers and/or mobile devices.

5 Easy to use, hard to live without

For the last couple years I've saved all my important files to Dropbox on my Mac. Whenever a file is saved to the Dropbox folder it's uploaded in the background. At first I was concerned about the reliability of all that uploading and that it would slow down my internet. But I do this all day every day and it's yet to fail. And in the rare case where a big file is uploading and clogging things up you can pause the sync. Having files available from any device anytime has proved invaluable.

Recently I got a new Mac. With every previous Mac I've done the automatic transfer where you plug the old computer up to the new one. This time I wanted to start fresh. I was amazed how much of what I really needed was in Dropbox. I installed the handful of apps I actually use everyday, Dropbox did it's thing and downloaded my files (which it did over the LAN because my old computer was still hooked up) and I was up and running.

I'm still on the free plan since I referred a few people which upped my space. As far as I'm concerned there's little not to like about Dropbox.

Disclaimer: I get free space if you click through from Apps & Oranges--at least until my partner Matt puts his link in :). But I call it like I see it, and I really like Dropbox.
