services allow you to store files in the cloud, allowing you to create multiple of your files. However, most of them do not provide you with desktop tools or explorer integration to browse and upload files easily.

A longtime back we had told you on how you could integrate your Box.net account with explorer. If you are a Skydrive user, we came across another software called Skydrive Explorer, which will help you to access files stored in Skydrive from Windows explorer. This adds a whopping 25GB of space to your computer.

    Beware of SkyDrive! My previous experience with Microsoft online services is that they will expire your account if you do not use the account within X number of days. (X is a variable number of days that they can change.) I have been trying to find an answer regarding whether the same is true for SkyDrive – everything indicates that expiration is alive and well and you could loose your data on SkyDrive if you are not careful.
