I received Microsoft's email today telling me I won't have access to my One Drive (or a least not even able to view files) in 32 days time (seems a random time frame but anyway,,,,,,,,,), so what are the best options that other people are using ?


I already have a Google Drive which is !4gb I think, and that's basically full, and I hear that Amazon do one too.


However, they all seem to be very expensive - I read that Amazon did a cheap version but when I looked today it was £55 a year. Now I don't want a terrabyte, just about 30gb or so for documents and files (not really photos), but it seems you have to pay for it all.


So when I say best - I mean best in terms of price as well.


Any suggestions ?

I like DropBox.  

Free up to a certain amount of storage and then $9.99 per month for larger storage requirements.

It's not just a back up, I keep all my files in a local DropBox folder. 

Then there is no need to daily, weekly or etc backup.

All files are auto-backed up every time I open and change.  

Folders and files are shareable via a link.

Accidentally deleted files are retrievable, as are previous revisions of files.
