Make the Most Out of Your Free Cloud Storage

Published on 13 March 14
Do you always feel the need to dock your devices on a USB 3.0 docking station stand because you feel like you’re always running out of storage space in them? Not to worry, because cloud storage devices and apps are now available, securely storing your files. However, not all cloud storage apps are built the same. So, even if you have one cloud storage app already, chances are you will still be using several of them. Some are great for storing files like documents and pictures, but not great when streaming videos and music, which other cloud apps could do better.
Here are some tricks that you can keep in mind to make the most out of your free online cloud storage apps.

  1. The best thing to do is to find out what the strengths and weaknesses of the available cloud storage options are. This way, you do not have to limit yourself to using only one storage. Most of these services are for free, so why not take advantage of most of them? At least, if you know what these particular cloud drives are good at and not, you will be able to optimize them and use them according to these observations. You can then use your USB 3.0 docking station to connect your iPad or Android device and your Macbook, where you can have access to your cloud storage sites.
  2. Back up photos from your iPad directly to the online storage. This action can be seen as a necessary thing to do now that we often take pictures using our devices, especially smartphones. In order to free up the limited storage it has, you can back up your last 1,000 photos into the iCloud if you are using an Apple mobile device. Other options include SkyDrive, Google+, and Dropbox. This is a great way to free up your device’s storage space so that it could accommodate more data and apps.
  3. Send mail attachments to the Cloud. This is one tip that you would really appreciate especially if you often find yourself searching through your mail often for that important document that you sent. Not only that, you can also send to the cloud some of your most accessed documents like resume, if you are job hunting, letter of intent for your businesses, and even scanned copies of your IDs and pictures. Moreover, a lot of people have difficulty attaching documents through their mobile devices, as the attachment feature of most iOS and Android devices are not that developed yet.
  4. Do not forget to encrypt your Cloud. Security is a very important factor that you would have to practice when you plan on using the Cloud. This is not only to protect your documents but to protect yourself from identity theft as well. After all, even the most secured websites get hacked as well.

These are just four of the many tips and tricks you can practice when you plan on utilizing cloud storage. Start researching more about this, as this would be very helpful with the limited storage capacity of mobile devices. Now, thanks to cloud devices, you do not have to worry about where to put your files. Just be sure you’re always on the safe side when using these devices.
