Box.com is a free, cloud-based storage system that allows users to upload, download, and share files from anywhere with an Internet connection. Box's free plan begins with 10 GBs of free data and you can upgrade to 100 GBs for $10/month. Those who sign up with University of Illinois credentials receive 50 GBs of storage through the university plan.
Using Box is a great way to keep yourself and your data organized and safe when you need to work at multiple stations or collaboratively. It can also work in tandem with Word, iPhone, iPad, Android and Google Drive, among other programs, for automatic syncing, as well as viewing, uploading, and sharing files.
Box allows you to map to your network drive so you can store your stuff the way you would locally on your computer by dragging and dropping, making it an easy to use way to keep your files on the cloud.
