We live in the era of mobile computing, or even post-PC era if you will. Our smartphones are used to access everything from the funny picture we took at that one party, to our favorite music, to that document that we need to be printed for the meeting. And handsets also come with the limitation of sometimes having quite the small storage space.

So, cloud services have emerged — storing your data on a server far away, you can still access it from absolutely any device. In fact, a lot of times it's easier and faster to just Google Drive a document to yourself, instead of looking for a cable to transfer it from the phone to the PC with.

It makes sharing easier, helps you store your endless stream of photos and video, and a lot more. The cloud is cool, sure... but not free.

Yeah, Dropbox, OneDrive, Drive, and even iCloud, as well as others, will start you off with some room for free. That ranges from 5 GB to 15 GB. But, more often than not, you might find that's just not enough. And then you click the “upgrade storage” option and it's time to choose. How much space do you need? How much money are you willing to give monthly for it?

Well, we thought we'd ask you, how much cloud storage do you really, really need?
