  • Great list Manoj. I think you can add Sync.com to this list. Between Mozy is extremely new for me.

    • Hi Anzil,

      I know that Sync.com is one of the best services. But I limited the list to 10, that’s why it’s avoided. I made another post on top 40 cloud storage services where Sync occupies top spot. Mozy is a reliable option and main thing is that it’s Dell product now.

      Thanks a lot for dropping your comment with us.
      Much love,
