I've used most of them depends on what you want it for.

My company has office365 and onedrive pretty much acts like my harddrive all files, apart from the huge ones, store on onedrive. The mobile apps work really well and setting up on any device is a breeze. If you already have office 365 it's a no brainer.

For my personal device, I use gdrive, which works just as well as onedrive just a little more clunky.

If you use a windows PC I'd use onedrive because it's baked into the OS.

Onedrive is a easier to back up locally, which matters to me.

Cheers, currently have everything backed up on external disk, but as I have Onedrive, I thought I'd see what people thought. Requirement are for photos, music, videos and documents. Sounds like it's the one for me as well.

I sync my cloud stuff locally, onedrive is a good service.

Just noticed there is 5gb free of charge on Onedrive. Will have to be selective on what I stick on it, but thanks for the comments.

You get 15 gb free with Google, so a bit more.
Amazon used to give you free storage, not sure if they still do or not.

Ubuntu all the way these days.
I have got an oldish laptop with windows 10 on. Like a snail these days after an update about 6 months ago!

Got all the important stuff on flash drives, but that's a fair bit more space on Google, thanks.

Google Drive by a mile.
Imagine a vaccine so safe you have to blackmailed into taking it, for a virus so deadly you have to be tested to know if you have it.
