In order beginning with those offering the least free storage and any of those offering the most going over the pros and cons of each if used in combination. you just might find yourself with more than enough free storage to meet all your needs.

let's get started..

We'll start here at the lower end with the first of three services offering five gigabytes in their basic free plan. 

10. iDrive 

First of which is idrive it supports an unlimited number of devices and is feature packed.

It lets you back up multiple devices with just one account and includes continuous file syncing. while it does support end-to end encryption one downside is that two-factor authentication is not supported at this time. The idrive free basic plan with five gigabytes of online storage will not expire.

it yours to use forever if you need more space they have personal and business plans starting at around fifty two dollars per year.

9. OneDrive

Next up for microsoft is onedrive not only is it available for windows. it's also available for mac os android and ios folders backed up from your pc are available online to view or edit without the need to download them first. files and folders can also be shared with individuals that don't have onedrive to view or edit. The onedrive basic plan will give you five gigabytes of storage for free.

But if you subscribe to office365 which recently changed. its name to microsoft 365 for some strange reason you get one terabyte storage. with microsoft 365 personal and one terabyte per person up to six with microsoft 365 family.

8. Amazon Prime

If you're an amazon prime member you get unlimited photo storage in full resolution plus five gigabytes of video storage for free with amazon drive

If you're not a member of prime you can still get up to five gigabytes of photo and video storage for free. if you need more storage than the five gigabytes offered they do have additional plans starting at around twenty dollars per year.

7. Mediafire

Stepping things up over those previously mentioned mediafire doubles the amount of free storage to 10 gigabytes. this can be increased up to 50 gigabytes with bonuses for referring friends and downloading apps.

While they do make it easy to share your files with no limits on downloads there is an upload limit of 4 gigabytes per file. which might be an issue for those of you with large video files with the free basic plan mediafire is ad supported

for additional features and to get rid of the ads they have plans starting at 7.50$ per month.

6. Box Drive

Box is another popular service that's been around for more than a decade with 10 gigabytes of free online storage. they're known for having great security with the ability to access just about any file type anywhere on just about any device.

With their free individual plan box limits you to a poultry 250 megabyte file upload limit. while they're 10$ per month pro plan does increase the upload limit to 5 gigabytes with up to 100 gigabytes of storage. You'll find better deals elsewhere when needing to pay for storage.

5. Pcloud

The lesser-known pcloud based in switzerland has been gaining in popularity lately their 10 gigabyte free plan has no file size limit or speed limit and includes a ton of useful features.

in addition to the standard tools you'd find with most storage services it can also restore previous versions of your files for 15 days. on the free plan and premium users get 30 days with pcloud the typical monthly and annual plans are available. if you need more storage or you can opt for one of their lifetime plans for a one-time fee.

4. MiMedia

MiMedia is another one to consider with 10 gigabytes of free storage. while the file size limit is 5 gigabytes. their upload speeds are quite fast. just like most of the other services mentioned apps are available for the most popular devices to upload or access your files at any time for those of you that need more space. their upgraded plans start at 7.99$ per month.

3. Ice Drive

Ice drive is the last of the free services. we'd recommend they're based in the UK and have only been around for a couple years so far. the overall user experience has been positive. unfortunately there is a three gigabyte daily bandwidth limit and it does not have two-factor authentication.

On the positive side in addition to their desktop and mobile apps portable apps are also available for windows mac os and Linux. just like p cloud mentioned earlier.

Ice drive offers monthly yearly and lifetime packages for those people needing more space.

Notable Mentions.

Before moving onto the top two services offering the most free storage here are three notable mentions you might have expected to Read in this Article.

And I'll tell you why they're not included as one of the top 10 we recommend.

1. Dropbox

While Dropbox is one of the most well known services the free storage offered is only a measly two gigabytes and limits the bandwidth on shared folders.

2. Apple iCloud

Apple iCloud is geared only towards those that own Apple devices. If you have an Apple ID you get five gigabytes free otherwise you get one gigabyte of free storage.

3. Mega NZ

And then there is mega with their mega disappointing marketing tactics. They'll tell you when you create a mega account you'll get 50 gigabytes of free storage. Turns out its just a bait and switch the 50 gigabytes is only available for the first 30 days.

After which you'll be left with a base of 15 gigabytes 15 gigabytes is not bad but very misleading. when you think you're signing up get 50gb.

2. Google Drive

Google drive offering the second most free storage of those. we recommend is google drive the total storage is 15 gigabytes.

Which is shared between Gmail google photos and google driveit's great for file sharing and collaboration allowing files to be accessed by multiple people at the same time. And can be used on all the major platforms. in a weird move if you stick with the free plan the name of the service is google drive.

But if you upgrade to one of their paid plans the name of the service changes to google one. it's essentially the same service with more features those plans start at 1.99$ per month.

1. Degoo iCloud

The service in this Article offering the largest amount of free cloud storage is degoo based in Sweden. They offer a massive 100 gigabytes blowing away. the others mentioned there are limitations including a 512 megabyte upload file size limit and files can only be uploaded from up to three devices.

On the flip side there is no limit for downloading or viewing of any files. and offers end-to-end encryption with their free plan degree is ad-supported and you do have to log in once every 90 days to keep your free account active.

if you opt for one of their paid plans starting at 2.99$ per month for 500 gigabytes. there are no ads and you get additional features.
