Apparently I received the bulk of my storage space from a Samsung promotion. All I did was link my account onto my Samsung Galaxy tablet. It was only one tablet, which is weird that it's showing 2 instances. :/
Edit: The sad part is I only have 272 MB used and will probably never use the rest. :)

Well that's insane :rofl: I got 25gb on Skydrive but that's it

I don't use any service because my local files are already accessible from anywhere via VPN and I have plenty of local storage. No interest at all in using any third party service.

I use Skydrive. It gives me 45gb of storage with Office 365 + the 25 gb they used to give.

I use Bit Torrent Sync and keep a copy on a relative's computer out of state.

Thanks for all the replies, everyone! They were really helpful.  (Y)


I decided to go with purchasing an additional 50GB from Skydrive for $25. That seemed to be the cheapest option for the features I wanted. Upload/syncing speeds are not as good as I would like, but it gets the job done. Being able to access files from other PCs on the same network is pretty cool, too. 


I made a comparison chart of the services I was considering to help me decide, and I thought maybe it will be useful to someone else. So here it is: Cloud Storage Comparison for Photos.  :geek:
