    Hey all, I'm using Dropbox and I've got 5GB of storage. Whenever I plug in my digital camera Dropbox automatically imports all the videos and photos I take. The videos are taking up far too much space, more than 500MB for most videos. By the way, how can I tell Dropbox to only import image files?

    I just noticed that Dropbox has 100GB for $10 a month. What are other services like?

    Is there another large company with a higher storage count that people could recommend?

    What do users on here use as their cloud solution?

    Thank you!

    Hey guys, I should have said this in my first post: I really don't need 100GB. Even 12-15GB would be enough for me. I really like how Dropbox automatically uploads the photos and videos to Dropbox as soon as I plug in my camera. Does Google do this as well?

    Those are basically my needs: 15GB of storage and automatic upload to the cloud when I plug my camera in.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi Bonecrusher,
    Free Clouds available that I know of without searching are:
    Dropbox - stand alone
    Google Drive - via Gmail.
    Skydrive - via Hotmail
    icloud - Need a 'idevice' for this one.
    I bet there's other options out there too.

    Google mail & drive will give you a combined storage space of 15Gb.
    skydrive, Dropbox & icloud have a 5Gb limit as a 'Free' service.
    Another alternative is perhaps a 16 or even 32Gb Flash drive, its portable, not connected to the Net, transportable, etc.
    What about investing in a External Hard Drive & use this as a computer back-up system as well as a storage medium for pics & movies.
    You could also load tons of your favourite mp3's for making playlist too.
