    google photos for back up of even not important shots,
    still Dropbox for everything important, and fast sync with desktop app.

    anyone still don’t have dropbox, try grab your own dropbox now, try use my link for additional space for us both

    I use iCloud Drive for all work-related files and documents. I signed-up for a 50GB subscription and use just about 10GB. I like its integration with macOS and iOS. Thru iCloud Drive, I keep my work files synchronized between two Macs, and can conveniently access those files on my iPhone when I'm mobile.

    I've also got OneDrive, which comes bundled with my Office 365 subscription; but I only use it to synchronize my OneNote notebooks between my Mac and iPhone. It's my wife that uses OneDrive more.

    Some may ask "Why not use Dropbox when it can do the same thing?" Simple: Dropbox is blocked in China. There are local cloud storage services here that provide even faster upload/download than iCloud Drive, such as Baidu Cloud, 360, etc.--but I simply don't trust them as much as I trust Apple and Microsoft when it comes to security and privacy.

    I'm using Amazon services especially Prime Photos. It is like $60 per year with unlimited space.

    I use OneDrive for my school work and personal stuff, and DropBox for my work.
