I have understood that Dropbox isn't very safe to use and I Googled for alternatives which I found of course. Before trying them out I would like to know if someone here knows, from own experience/knowledge, better solutions for storing data 'in the cloud' than with Dropbox?

Thanks in advance.

KR, Leo

Personally, I use Google Drive. More secure, use your same Google account, 5GB free storage, and desktop syncing like dropbox. Also, it is integrated with Google Docs.

What if there were no hypothetical situations?

To get around the security issues, I encrypt my sensitive dropbox items with TrueCrypt. Even if I used Google Drive, I would do the same.
