    I need to replace Dropbox.
    Wanted some opinions: Google Drive or One Drive?
    Assuming I can install and then forget about - the files just sync themselves?

    Any pros and cons I should be aware of?

    Details:

    I've been a user if Dropbox for more than 10 years - I started using very very early after it came out.
    I have a syncing problem - one account doesn't sync out of 20 accounts that share the same folder.
    I tried contacting support and asking on forums. Forums were helpful - but after uninstalling and resinstalling, the problem has come back. The support given by direct support really sucks. Slow replies. Replies where they haven't read what you said in your message to them. Really poor experience.

    Depends on what you want to pay for? Both offer free storage......Google drive is 15GB and Onedrive is 5GB. Then if you check the pricing plans....either monthly or annually it get's pretty expensive.

    I would recommend a Personal Cloud NAS device. The cost up front is a bit expensive but it's a one time purchase. Here's an inexpensive WD single drive fully enclosed device.
