    "Shutterfly offers unlimited photo storage as well as never deleting your photos. However, the main focus of this website is for the consumer to be able to buy a product based on the uploaded photos. The storage capability itself is great, but the main focus is the selling of a product. There are other sites that are better at storing files and photos without feeling the obligation to buy a product."

    "Photobucket used to be so much bigger than it is today. It was actually annoying tripping across it on the internet when you were looking for decent pictures. They had some of the earliest image copy protection and hotlinking protection on the internet. Nowadays they're more like a cloud service than anything, but still built on their old legacy."

    "OneDrive is ideal if you travel a lot, are a student, or are even a little scatter-brained. I save my reports on OneDrive because I frequently make many versions and keep all versions for reference. When I need to go back to a previous version, I don't have to worry about it being wiped out by the latest one. I don't like the idea of saving photos or personal items on OneDrive, but it is indispensable for document editing and saving."
