Cloud storage seems to be a very volatile market. During this research we found several services that had started and closed within just a few years of life. So it is best not to trust important files or photos to just one service or site. If you have found other cloud or photo storage services that offer free storage (and it is not free for a trial period), and we have not included it in the list or if any of the above services are closed, leave a comment below and we will update the article.
