re: 5 Dropbox Alternatives For Cloud Storage
I must say that I love SugarSync. Their user-interface is fantastic and they're quite generous with the 5 gb they offer free. I've definitely moved away from DropBox over the past year just because of their server's unreliability as you mentioned.

My favorite service is called JustCloud. Unlimited storage for a reasonable monthly price. I've actually written up a review on it for my site. http://www.top10cloudstorage.c...
