MegaCloud is an online file storage service offering an alternative to Dropbox with 8 free GBs to store and access your files from your Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS device (iPhone, iPad). MegaCloud is integrated within the operating system so that when you move something to your MegaCloud folder, the content is automatically uploaded to the cloud server.

Using MegaCloud is really fast and easy. The files integrates into the menu from which you can view previous versions of a file or share it with a link. Putting a file in the MegaCloud folder automatically syncs it in the cloud in real time.

Rewards for sharing
As with Dropbox, if your contacts recommend MegaCloud or perform other actions such as installing the mobile version, connecting to your social networks or importing images or videos, you'll get more space, up to additional 16GB in total.
If you're used to Dropbox but need more space to store files, MegaCloud is a great alternative, with a base of 8GB and availability on most platforms. Additions like file sharing via links, the ability to add comments and access to previous versions make it a worthy successor of similar services.
