Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos give you 15 GB of storage space for free. This storage limit only applies if you've chosen to upload "Original" size photos (bigger than 16 megapixels) on your desktop or with Auto Backup on your Android device.

It is not as easy as Dropbox or similar services for that purpose. The free accounts can only have public repositories, so you would also need to pay to keep your private documents on there. Dropbox and such do provide this for free. The more public nature of Github makes me assume takedowns would be more frequent for illegal content sharing. It is not ...

No. For that particular feature you might want to consider Dropbox. Take a look at this comparison: http://techsplurge.com/3485/dropbox-amazon-cloud-drive-detailed-comparison/ To share your files: Go to Your Cloud Drive. Select up to 25 files and/or folders. Click Share. Either share a link by clicking Get shareable link, or share by email. ...

Unfortunately yes. The request to resolve this issue is pretty high in the Dropbox Votebox. Please vote for it. You could try alternatives to Dropbox like Wuala or SpiderOak. In these applications the shared space is taken only from the user that started the sharing. The privacy features are better too.

Windows Live Mesh does this, and it's free. I've used it for sync'ing large projects of source code between my office and home office, and it worked very nicely. It operates via the "cloud" (i.e. it gives you free online storage), and you can specify which devices you want to connect to that cloud repository.

Ask an important question of yourself. Do you need backup or online replica? Sound similar, but they're not the same thing. Backup services enable you to revert to older versions of files e.g you accidentally save changes to a file, backups enable you to recover deleted files, backups enable you to permanently archive files safe in the knowledge you can ...

So, since you want a free solution here's my thought on Dropbox vs the Microsoft soluiton. Dropbox gives you 2GB of storage, nice client apps for multiple platforms, plus web access to your files. You can share those files with whoever you want. A down side for me is that everything you want to syncronize has to be in a single folder... and sometimes that's ...

Unfortunately not, but you can use Foxit reader to open the document, create a bookmark of the page you last read and move the bookmark to the beggining of the bookmark list. So, next time you open the document, just click the bookmark entry you created before :-)

Well you could as you say create a new account to put the data in, the other option is Google Vault.

Answer from GitHub: Working with large files While git is terrific for a great number of use cases, it has trouble with large files. If you are pushing large files to GitHub, you might want to evaluate your workflow to make sure those files are truly necessary.

This is not the intended purpose of github. It's intended for management/perusal of software source-code (and related assets). Please also see this article: https://help.github.com/articles/what-is-my-disk-quota For standard online storage, I would look at Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3, or an online backup solution.

I would avoid Google Apps for Business as your primary storage solution. When I was sourcing alternatives, Box.com was the only one that I felt would provide some benefit. In the end, I didn't see enough of an advantage to offset having to spend agonizing weeks migrating our files. Also, it is a lot more expensive; you get what you pay for. My advice is ...
