Dropbox was the sole company to dominate in cloud service when it was launched back few years ago. Later many companies followed its footstep to leverage the advantage of most emerging market of the decade. Despite of heaps of cloud service providers out there, Dropbox is still one of the best cloud file storage service. It comes in two variants i.e. free and paid. You get 2 GB storage limit in free service and can extend it by referring to your friends. No doubt, Dropbox is a great service, but the question is that, 'Is It The Only Cloud File Storage Service?' If no, are there any alternatives to dropbox? Well, you don't need to get confused as I am going to give the answer same by listing the best alternatives for Dropbox in this article. So let's have a look at it.

Dropbox Alternatives

Continue reading the article to find some of the best cloud storage systems available in the market which could be alternatives for Dropbox. There are many cloud storage systems available, many of which are free and some of them charge a fee for premium cloud services. Google Drive is one of the new entrant in to the cloud storage space.

1. LiveDrive

LiveDrive is the no.1 alternative for Dropbox and the awesome features of this service allow to hold this tag. You can store your files and documents online. The best feature that I like in this service is the speed. The documents uploading and accessing speed is just better than the best. You can their client on Windows or Mac as well. The service is available for two weeks free trial and then you need to pay them a fee for unlimited use. You can also enjoy this cloud file storage service from your Android or Apple device as they have got official apps for them.

2. Syncplicity

It offers various facilities like cloud file storage, automatic synchronization, file sharing etc. It is rated among the best file sharing and storing sites available till date. The features are awesome and you can use their client on your Windows OS PC. Client for MAC is also going to be live soon. You can easily store your files and can access them whenever you want. The thing which I don't like about the service is that they don't have apps for smartphone. So we can't access it remotely. Still with lots of other good features, it's a good alternative for Dropbox.

3. Windows SkyDrive

If you are looking for free cloud storage service, then this one is for you. With this, you get up to 25 GB of free storage (for old users). New users can get 7GB of free cloud storage service space making it only service provider to offer more cloud space. You can start using the service by simple sign up, which only requires you to have Windows live ID. As it is coming from the house of Microsoft, there is no worry about the security and support. Moreover, there are smartphone apps available to sync your files on your handset. Rumor says that SkyDrive will be tightly integrated into Windows Phone 8 platform.

4. Sugar Sync

This is another awesome service with almost same features as that of Dropbox. But the plus point over the Dropbox is that you get 5 GB of free storage with this, which is better that what you get in Dropbox. The remote accessing feature is awesome as it has official app for all major platforms like Android, iOS, Symbian etc.

5. Live Mesh

Yet another good alternative of Dropbox with 5 GB of free storage upon sign up. You can easily upload the files on their servers and can access them, whenever and wherever you want. Bandwisth and port speed is another good point of this service. Windows Live Mesh has been around for years but couldn't lure more users.

6. Google Drive - New competitor for Dropbox

Google Drive is the game changer. With millions of users in pockets, Google launched its ambitious project at the beginning of the year—the Google Drive. Google Docs has also been merged into the Google drive, which is effectively known as Google drive itself. Google chrome has already few web store apps to support Google drive. There is a good Google drive starter guide and tutorial made available by Geniusgeeks (here is an Google Drive offline installer download link).

Have you tried any of these services or you are still going to stick with Dropbox? I betcha, most of the users must be using multiple cloud services at a time to resolve their basic storage problem. Drop your answers via the comments in the comment section below.
