Windows 7: Using 'The Cloud'

Windows 8.1.1
Using 'The Cloud'

Is it feasible to use more than one cloud system? I was using Sugarsynch but I found it very slow but I used it as it gave me 5GB. I'm now using Dropbox, to backup my mail (eM Client) but I only get 2GB. At this stage I''m still evaluating which one to go for but the question is, will they clash if they are both trying to upload at the same time. or will one take precedence?

you can use as many as you like!

but if they are both trying to upload/download at the same time, speed will suffer.

i've used both dropbox and sugarsync (and spideroak too) on the same machine with no problems.

i mainly use these products to sync important university files between my desktop and netbook so i don't need to faff about using usb drives and remembering to update files between machines. although sugarsync is more flexible (you can choose any folders you like to sync), i ended up using dropbox more and more, due to its 'LAN sync' feature which uses the LAN rather than the internet to transfer files, which speeds things up a lot. i've also managed to get 13 gigs of free space which is useful.

The Cloud Revisited
