It's rather amazing to see how much cloud storage is

offered to users at no cost.


Let's start with the big news yesterday that Microsoft's

OneDrive is offering 15GB of storage FREE to everyone

who signs up.


Of course, the quintessential cloud service, DropBox, offers

2GB of storage standard, and as you sign up friends or opt

to import photos, that space increases.  I believe I am now

up to 7.5GB.


Google Drive starts you off with 15GB of data storage at

no cost.


And now, as I started using the DP of Yosemite, I have 

access to iCloud, which is offering 5GB of free storage to

all its users.


Once you sign up for these various services, you can drag

their storage folders from your Mac hard drive to your FINDERwhere you can easily access its data.


On mobile devices you can download individual apps that

will allow you access to each of your storage accounts.  I would

guess that the only restriction one would have with an Android

phone or tablet is access to iCloud storage.
