    "I was looking for a simple cloud storage for personal use, I found out there are a lot of options out there. I tried a few of them and they did what I wanted them to. One thing that was missing was sharing files with friends and coworkers. Box does a great job at storing your files and allowing you to share those files if you wish. I've found a lot of use in this."

    "My work only uses Microsoft and Windows products. To make things easier I do the same thing when working from home. To keep my files in line and make sure they are accessible both at home and at work I store my documents on OneDrive. So much easier for everything to be the same regardless of what computer I'm using."
