Online data storage offers more benefits compared to the usual external storage devices.  Using common data storage such as thumb drives, external hard drives and memory cards are not convenient because of their bulk. External storage systems are prone to damage and can be difficult to maintain. Also, most of these devices, especially the high-end ones can be really expensive. Add the possibility of forgetting your external storage device somewhere and you’ll understand why a lot of people are now ditching these storage devices for something better. Online storage offers a safer and more efficient way to store data.

The Internet is a large network that allows you to access data anywhere in the world. Online storage for files offers data access anywhere there is Internet connection. This is very convenient especially if you want to share data with other users from different locations. You don’t need to send out those breakable drives or discs.  Data can be accessed instantly anytime by sending links or user credentials to authorized individuals.
