By default, Windows 10 comes with OneDrive for cloud storage and when you use your Microsoft Account on Windows 10 it lights up all kinds of enhancements and features in the operating system.

Of course, the primary feature of Windows 10 is that it allows you to sync files across all of your devices that use the service however, it is not the only option that is out there.

One such alternative is Dropbox and it is one or the closes in functionality and reach compared to OneDrive.

The Dropbox storage is accessible via the web, a Windows desktop program and a Windows mobile app and between all of them you will have access to your storage files where ever you might be and on whatever device you have at your disposal.

In today's gallery I am showing you the setup process through the web and how the interface looks and then also showing you the desktop program that is used to sync and access those files.

Like OneDrive, Dropbox integrates with File Explorer and gives you direct access to your files on your desktop or tablet.

One big difference between OneDrive and Dropbox is the amount of storage you get for free. While OneDrive provides 5GB for new users, Dropbox only gives free accounts 2GB to use for cloud storage.

Tomorrow I will show you the Dropbox Windows Store app for PC and Mobile in my weekly app tour.
