Why we Have to use Amazon Cloud Drive Storage 2017

The first is Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon’s answer to other consumer-facing cloud storage, is similar to Dropbox or Windows SkyDrive. Amazon is giving everyone 5GB of space for free, with the ability to purchase additional storage for $1 per Gigabyte in chunks: 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, or 1000 GB levels are all available. While 5GB free is more than Dropbox’s 2GB, and way less than SkyDrive’s 25Gb, for raw storage in the cloud I still think Dropbox has everything else beat in usability. For Cloud Drive, you have to do all file interactions (uploading/downloading) within your browser, which isn’t as convenient on traditional computers as a locally-mounted drive. There’s no reason that Amazon couldn’t move this direction, however, and release a program that would allow more direct access.

 

 

Pros
  •     Unlimited storage (caveats apply)
  •     Free unlimited photo storage for Amazon Prime members
  •     Simple drag-and-drop interface
Cons
  •     No file syncing
  •     Limited sharing capabilities
  •     No collaboration features
  •     Desktop app is very limited, you can only restore entire drive, not individual folders via the   desktop app
  •     Unlimited storage claim is flimsy, at best. You’re at the mercy of Amazon.
