    I use Dropbox for legal work and have never lost a file over the 5 or 6 years I've been using it for that purpose now. Definitely worth a try.

    I, too, found One Drive to be unreliable. So I switched to Google Drive. No problems. None. Zero. Nada. Love it.
    I agree OneDrive is an joke. Lost files that did no restore, slows down Windows Explorer. After uninstalling OneDrive which can be done W10 is much more faster and stable.

    I too switched to Google Drive but now sync things manually using the Chrome browser.

    There's a command-line program called "gdrive".
    Using it you can list the contents of your google drive, and you can copy files to or from google drive.

    I use google drive to backup a certain few important files ... so as to avoid bulky resource-consuming synchronization. And no services need be running. None.

    I just run a script every so often to copy a few files there.

    A number of my clients use OneDrive due to signing up to Office365 for their email meaning OneDrive is included with a 1TB space per user. This is the sole reason its used. My personal preference would be Google Drive or Dropbox by far. OneDrive is such a poor effort by Microsoft and so buggy and lacking many features.
