pCloud differs from Google Drive and alike in that it allows to actually pick folders on your computer that you want to sync. It also sets up an additional drive/disk that represents your cloud storage. So you can manipulate your remote storage right from your computer's explorer or Total Commander or whatever. These are pretty handy features If you ask me.

It's a very easy to use tool that works on many platforms and syncs up files nicely, while giving 10GB of storage for free. Very nice. Things to have in mind:

  1. Encryption is not available for free accounts.
  2. While it's based in Switzerland, they use servers in the US which is not very reassuring privacy-wise.

PCloud is one of the best cloud drive and file sync around. Its greatest feature is that it creates a new drive in your system and you can MOVE files there. This will free up space in your hard disk allowing at same time to always access the files as they are, always available for direct use. It is like to have a new remote disk. You can do almost the same with other clouds forcing the files to stay online only, but you need to make them available offline again to use them. Much easier with pCloud. Sharing files is really easy, shared photos/videos are shown to the destinatary directly from browser, the destinatary doesn't need to download them to see the content. You can track down who downloads your files and how many times they were downloaded. You can share folders/files for team use. If they in future will integrate with an office document solution like, dunno, Polaris Office or SoftMaker FreeOffice or even better the opensource Open365, they will have the ultimate cloud drive ever becoming a great competitor of Office365/OneDrive or Google Documents/Google Drive or Zoho.
