Requirements

Easy to use
Reasonable cost
Can auto sync just new and updated files
Good amount of storage

Tried Google drive = total crap. Ditto Dropbox.

Probably because they're thinking about it.

I'm not a computer genius----but I would say anything that says "cloud storage" is probably decent in this area.

I, for one, dont respond because I dont know squat about it.


I store surplus stuff on my thumb drives. And still have stuff on an old plug in box thing from years ago.Havent yet shopped for storage space at an online site.

What Krafty said above makes sense to me.

I have a thumb drive. For some reason Windows 10 was struggling to recognise it. That resulted in a rather persistent and annoying error beep. Since I copied the contents of the drive to my desktop that annoying error message has gone.

Neither Google drive or dropbox worked well for me. I do however believe that having a 'cloud' account would be a good idea. I'm quite choosy(autistic inflexibility?) as to things working in a way that suits me.

Thanks for trying to help but unfortunately= total crap. Firefox regularly goes into 'no response' mode when using it. When it does work and I upload folder names are listed,but they're empty.

I'm not a tech genius or even average for that matter . I need something that works bomph bomph bomph- simple- no fiddle faddle.
