We store huge amount of data in our electronic devices. It may be some important work files, photos, videos, movies and so on. But disaster may happen any time. It may be in the way of a virus attack, hard disk failure, mobile theft or damage. Are you prepared to overcome such sudden, unexpected situation ?
Cloud storage account is very essential now a days. It can be used to store our important data in a secure cloud vault. Most of us have account in leading cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive. But Dropbox offers just 2 GB as free usage. However Google gives better option than this. Thanks to the social giant as it offers 15 GB free space for all users. These two accounts together might be enough if you are storing just photos and important documents. But what about others ? There’re several online writers, small scale business houses and other professionals who need to store a high amount of data in cloud ?
Of course, they can go for premium plans of Dropbox and Google Drive. But it will be difficult for them if not having sufficient budget to pay their monthly or annual charges. A number of some other free, reliable options left for them to save any type of file in web. They will give you up to 10 TB free space without spending a single penny.
Here I list top 40 cloud storage services (probably all available options right now) ordered by the free storage space. I divided them into two- Free and Premium. Free cloud services offer premium plans as well. However premium services closed their doors towards free users and provide extra benefits including backup, dedicated customer support and many more.
You have to perform some additional tasks like install apps, invite friends to sign up etc to get the mentioned free storage, in numerous services. But it won’t be a big hurdle for you. Over all, they all will give you a total free space of 20,377 GB ! Really huge !

After registering to all these accounts, your free cloud space will be increased to huge 20,377 GB as I said earlier. It is more than enough to store all your contents in the cloud. Accessing them at a later time is not a matter as most of them have dedicated apps for Android and iOS devices. So you can save, access and restore them from anywhere until if you have no issues with the net.
We have discussed about free cloud options till the last moment. Now we are going to see the premium services that will work as cloud storage as well as back up solutions. They are ideal to backup your computer data in cloud and restore them later when something bad happened with the system. So we can treat them like backup services for personal and business purposes.
