Get 50GB of free online storage for your files

There's a promotion currently running offering 50GB of free storage with the site Box.

If you need to save lots of large files - perhaps a very big collection of large PDF documents or videos for your business - and you are finding your free Dropbox account isn't big enough, then this might be of interest.

There's a promotion currently running at the time of writing offering 50GB of free storage with the site Box. To take advantage, signup here on the Box web site.
 
There is a catch: as the site states, the deal is for "For Dell Advantage Loyalty Program members". That said, we've had it verified that it works, and others report they have been able to signup as well.
 
We are big users of cloud storage sites - mainly Dropbox, though at least one of our writers uses Skydrive.
 
Dropbox, Google Drive and Skydrive offer 5GB to 7GB of free storage which is probably spacious enough if all you are doing is storing documents. This could run out though if you start storing a number of large PDF documents, images and videos.
 
You can pay for more space with these sites - from 25GB to 1 terabyte of data storage - with prices ranging from $10 - $50 per month.
 
As various sites including Lifehacker have pointed out, there are certain limitations to be aware of. In particular, Box has a limitation of 250MB on the size of files you upload.
