If you haven't heard, Google is launching their cloud storage service with 5GB free and pricing plans of up to 200GB. How does it compare though to the plethora of other cloud / sync / backup offerings out there?

This article from The Verge is one of the best and most comprehensive I've come across, and describes not only the pricing structure, but the features that each one offers - including stuff like previous versions, folder syncing, client OS support.

They stop short of making a recommendation though, so you'll need to evaluate each service carefully to see whether it meets your needs.


For myself I've been a happy paid user of SugarSync for almost 2 years now - I sync multiple computers on the same account and stuff on my home computer is available on my work computer and vice versa. I only use it for my documents though, not for a full PC backup as I only have 30 GB of space. I also use dropbox to a very limited degree.

Anyone else tried any of these services and can provide feedback?
