Upload your own products. Of course, it offers the standard sharing between users that other services have, but on top of that Box. So, when that crucial moment hits and you absolutely need a file, it is almost guaranteed that Amazon will be there to serve it up. Since we saw the beta release of Windows Live Folders a couple of days ago, I thought that now would be a good time to take a look at the different online storage solutions that are out there now.

So, when that crucial moment hits and you absolutely need a file, it is almost guaranteed that Amazon will be there to serve it up. Windows Live Folders , currently in the early stages of beta, provides the least amount of storage of any of these services that I have gone through.
The free package, which is the only package that they have for right now, gives you MB of storage and a cap on file size, set at 50 MB. Chris Jones, Corporate VP for Windows Live Experience Program Management is saying that MB is enough for this service since it is built to store and share documents as opposed to music and video, despite one of the default folders created with new accounts being named " Music.
Keep in mind that this is a beta product and that by the time it is released, we could see drastic changes. It's not that Folders is a bad service by any means, but I personally expect a lot more from Microsoft and their web services. I think that they have the talent and the resources to be able to compete with anyone in the industry, but they need to take a step back and see what the users really want.
AOL's Xdrive wins hands down in amount of storage offered. You really can't beat getting 5 GB of storage with unlimited bandwidth and no file size cap for free. Even the pricing for the paid plan is very reasonable.
For pricing, I would have to say that I like Amazon's S3 the best. I really give them credit for going with a pricing structure that is completely different from any of their competitors. Although it is geared more towards developers, it would be really nice to see Amazon bring S3 into the mainstream. Who knows, maybe pay as you go is the next big thing. Finally, we come to features.
None of the other services integrate sharing, widgets, a variety of access and uploading points, and third party application development anywhere near as well.
