I am a sucker for efficiency. I like being super efficient, a good time manager, productive and well, again, efficient. I would romance efficiency, if that was humanly possible. As a writer, I have to research lots of links, scourge through the web for information and perform insane number of super-powered, unearthly moves to gather my research. Usually, what I require, other than my superpowers, is knowledge of what I need to find, effective searching techniques and, not to forget, a browser for all of my antics.

Since there are several file-sharing services available, I have selected the 7 most used, most efficient file-sharing services that can help you get the job done in a jiffy. So, let’s take a look!

Backing up files is the smartest thing a computer owner can do. Storing them in the cloud means less investment upfront and unlimited storage that can be accessed from any place. Thanks to the intense competition among the cloud backup services, you can get unlimited storage for just a few bucks.

But, it isn’t like cloud backup services are the silver bullet. Some tend to revise their pricing plans, throttle upload bandwidth and so on.
