Many people store their entire entertainment system – movies, TV shows, music, and video games – on their computer. But after constant software updates, installations, and one-too-many music files, a hard disk just doesn’t know what’s hit it. Programs are running slower and the CPU usage is at 98%, but you can’t bear to part with those videos you downloaded. This is why a lot of people choose to opt for an online file-storage solution. It’s easier than installing a new hard drive, isn’t prone to mechanical failure, and, in the case of Box.net, you can easily organize files into several folders, mimicking the familiarity of your own hard drive.
The site is extremely intuitive, and unlike competitors, uploads are very quick and the menu is easily navigated. Once your files are uploaded, there’s the option of either sharing with other users, non-members, or even interacting with the files directly within your browser with many popular file formats supported including PDF, Word/Excel documents, movies, and audio. There are three tiers of pricing: Free, Individual and Business, with each tier offering progressively more file space, bandwidth and greater levels of support.
