Now we can upload and save our files online and access it from anywhere any moment. You don’t have to carry your computer around anymore; you don’t even need a flash drive anymore because in the case of theft or corruption all your important files will be gone. Won’t it be better to save all your files online and access if from anywhere in the world without having to carry them around?
