Cloud based storage is a very up and coming subject. There are quite a few flavours around including offerings from some of the big IT players such as Microsoft Skydrive and Google Drive. Personally I’ve always used Dropbox as I’ve found it to be one of the best systems out there and that their free space model is very generous.
I use Dropbox to store a lot of my important files, think of it as an online backup. I also find it’s great for getting files from my laptop to my Iphone which can be tricky on occasions. (Itunes I’m looking at you…) I’d say it’s a great way for students to keep a backup of their important work and much safer than a USB drive!
Dropbox currently have an offer on for Universities where they will give everyone who signs up (and verifies their University email address) 3GB of storage for the next two years! Even better, the more who sign up the more space you get!
