Pros

Filestream integrates perfectly with Windows Explorer. I LOVE that I can access files on my computer that are on the shared drive in the same way I would access a file in MyDocuments.
Overall I am pleased with drive. It is user friendly and being someone who is not tech savvy it is nice to be able to use without having to contact support.
Overall, I am very happy with Google Drive. It is a good investment when backing up your files.

Pros

It is very good for backing up your data and from moving your data from one iPhone device to another. The customer service is also a great deal for me and I honestly give them 5 stars for that.
I like that it exists, and it's good to backup important things. I wish they gave you more space for free.
I love how easy it is to connect all things iCloud with my iPhone. I found this especially useful for backing up my devices and sharing photos.

Cons

There isn't much I don't like about google drive. The offline work can be a little tricky at times and I have lost a few sentences due to this feature.
There is some frustration for lack of support for older devices which sometimes are just used for storage themselves.
Furthermore, it seems to keeps failing to sync a specific type of file (.suo , a Visual Studio related file) which however is only just a bit annoying and does not cause any trouble.

Cons

I personally struggled with iCloud, finding my docs once they were uploaded, uploading, I felt like I was missing pieces, I was always concerned about losing things.
My account has been hacket but i can not recover all my phone and... lost it.
Most Apple products specifically require iCloud to function properly, which is difficult due to Apple’s lack of specialized software with no alternate options.

Pros

Best data backup solution for Android phones. I use it to back up my data for other apps I use.it works seamlessly with other google play apps. It is very convenient to upload your files and be able to reach them anywhere without your phone. Also as a bonus to pixel users you get unlimited data storage for backing up your pictures.

Cons

It's like iCloud Drive, but Google. You can use it on non-Apple product.

Good for Backups

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is definitely not for me. I find Google Drive a much more convenient option. Even though I still use iCloud for certain things, I would much rather pay for Google Drive storage which is much more user-friendly to use.

Pros

I only find it useful because I mostly use Apple products so backing up and syncing is pretty easy and I don't have to worry about it too much. It is a convenient option to have for storage and backup if you are using an iPhone or Mac.

Cons

While it does make synchronization easy, it is equally hard to navigate the storage. I am almost never able to find my documents. Not to mention, the storage pricing is also a bit higher than I would normally pay. Icloud alone takes so much storage on a MacBook that I run out of space even when I am paying for extra storage.

Best secure cloud storage platform for personal use

Reviewed 2 years ago

One of the best cloud storage platforms, a strong competitor of Google drive and Microsoft. Apple is incomplete with cloud functionalities

Pros

Its sync feature is extraordinary. Its ability to secure the data makes it different from other platforms

Cons

It's a bit costly if buy more storage. For me, it is not a problem.

iCloud

Have all your files backed up

Reviewed 2 years ago

In my job I have to save many files, images and notes, with iCloud I can have access to all my files that I keep on my iPhone and iMac and as I take up space I buy the plan that best suits my needs, and I can access these files From any device with my Apple ID, iCloud is accessible from anywhere and from any Apple device or web browser. In my experience, iCloud has the advantage that it syncs very well across all Apple devices. makes automatic backups so my documents are always up to date.

Pros

I like iCloud since this service gives me the opportunity to save and sync files such as images. photos, documents, videos, contacts, books, audiobooks, and the best of all is that they are in a safe place, the best thing about iCloud is that it syncs very well with all apple devices and has one of the best securities compared to other cloud storage services.

Cons

I don't like that they only give 5 GB of free cloud memory, since google drive give 3 times more cloud storage.

Overall, I think iCloud is great for most use cases

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall the benefits allow for simple and intuitive cloud based storage and software solutions.

Pros

iCloud helps with most consumer users who need some form of Cloud based storage and unification of software products (on iPad, iPhone, MacBook, etc).

Cons

It is a bit constrained, and has less features than something like Google Drive. However, it does well with Apple devices and is native to those products.

iCloud is great for storing photos and videos in the Cloud

Reviewed 2 years ago

My experience with iCloud overall is great while using it to backup all of my photos and videos between my iPhone and MacBook. However, for files and documents, I much prefer to use Google Drive, as it gives much more flexibility.

Pros

I like that iCloud just works seamlessly with Apple products, especially for storing and syncing photos and videos to the cloud automatically with the Photos app. It is also an excellent option for backing up devices such as an iPhone or an iPad. It is easy to use and only takes a minute to set up.

Cons

There is only 5GB of free storage which is significantly less than Google Drive. Also, there is a huge gap between the different paid storage options of 50 GB, 200 GB, or 2 TB with no option in between. iCloud Drive is also not as good for file management as Google Drive. It only lets you sync a copy of your documents to iCloud, rather than being able to move your files completely to the cloud for online storage to save space on your device.
