Hi, @eddybarnn, welcome to Fluther!

Personally I like Dropbox for miscellaneous files and Google Picasaweb for photos. They are the easiest, most reliable services I have tried. I don’t store music or video in the cloud, so my needs aren’t immense. I get by on the free accounts.

For reading, here are some recent posts from Lifehacker regarding cloud storage:

I recommend Dropbox. It’s a downloadable application which allows you to store files and retrieve them through their server. With Dropbox, a folder is stored conveniently on your computer upon installation (you can access it from any Dropbox “enabled” computer) and you can easily drag any files right into Dropbox. There’s also a really nice feature that let’s you share files with others via a ‘public link.’ I’ve used Dropbox for a few months and haven’t had any problems with it thus far. I use it to host all sorts of things such as Flash movies, simple HTML pages, and photos.
