Who doesn’t want to satisfy his/her need of hunger. Geeks and other PC users always crave for more and more storage space. Sometimes they upgrade their Hard drive to 1 TB or 2 TB or they search for a cheap online storage system. Some of you may be aware of Dropbox, but the sad part is that it gives only 2 GB of free storage. So here’s a good alternative to Dropbox, as with the help of Amazon Cloud Drive, you can get up to 5 GB of free space. It cannot really be said as alternative to Dropbox because they both function differently, as in Dropbox you need to just copy and paste the file to your folder on hard drive and it will get uploaded automatically, whereas in Cloud Drive, you need a Browser to upload and download the file. In short, you will need just a browser to upload the files and download the files, and its this simple.
