As a Gmail user, you're already entitled to 1GB of free storage, and you can upload files as large as 250MB. Needless to say, if you have a lot of big files, you'll burn through your limit in short order. Fortunately, you can buy more, and you should. Here are three reasons why:
- It's cheap, arguably some of the cheapest online storage on the planet. Prices start at $5 per year for 20GB.
- If you spring for 200GB of storage (an outright steal at $50/year, IMHO), you get a free 4GB Eye-Fi card, one of my favorite gadgets. (It's worth $70 all by itself.) I don't know how much longer Google will be running this promotion, so I'd hop on it quickly.
- It's business-friendly: Google's shared folders feature makes it easy to share selected files with co-workers, colleagues, etc.
