Microsoft's OneDrive

One Drive is Microsoft's Cloud. You can save files, photos, documents, and videos in Microsoft's Cloud. Not only that. But you can also invite family and friends to join the OneDrive an earn more storage if the already free storage isnt enough. This is also a option to use when your mobile device or PC is running low on internal memory. You also will have access to the cloud from anywhere and everywhere. Not only this, but your files and docs will be able to have access even offline. So you wont have to worry about wifi or data if need to take a look into something. For using this on mobile devices you can use a 2 authentication and pin so not just anyone can get access to your account. You may also share docs and such right from the Drive.

The way you can earn free storage with OneDrive is invite family and friends with your own personal referral link that is given to you. Have the other person to sign up to a new account. Once the person you have invited makes an account, then you both will receive 500MB each. Your max to earn free is 5GB of free storage. But, Microsoft also has storage plans you may choose from if the free storage you are already receiving isn't enough. If you don't have a account or know anyone that has one, you may click on the link below to get started. This is also another way to clear up memory on your mobile devices as well.

Dropbox

DropBox is another great cloud storage and app that you can use on PC and mobile devices. You can also gain free storage with this app as well by inviting family and friends to join Dropbox. You can save music, photos, movies, docs and many more. You are also able to use it offline as well to check your docs or pictures or listen to movies and so on. You can share in real time to family and friends right from dropbox and see the changes on any file that has been made.

When you invite family and friends to Dropbox, you and the other person both will earn 500MB of bonus space. The max you are able to receive of free storage is 16GB. If you need more of free storage you may upgrade at anytime to an higher storage amount.


These are just a couple of cloud drives and apps that you can use to expand or extend memory and storage for your devices. You also have Google Drive, which is mostly pre installed on most Android devices as well. So, give them a try and see for yourself. All comments and questions are welcome below. If you haven't setup an account with any of these clouds, I'll leave a link to each one so you may begin to start using these products and services. They are all available on Windows, Chrome, and Mac, as well as Windowsphone, iOS and Android.
