With WinXP, you ask the question "does the service have
a client for my OS".

It doesn't matter what service is offered, if you cannot
connect via WinXP.

Dropbox dropped a bunch of stuff.

Sure, you can get a list of services, but notice they
don't provide info on client availability. There was a time
when Wiki had a few hints about what was deprecated.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compar...sting_services

You'll end up reviewing articles like this,
to see what the client situation is like this
week. Reading the comments section might be
required too, in case the article doesn't make
"enough sense".

The free offerings have "just enough space for a taste".
Some have dropped back on more generous original offers.

Why are you posting in Windows 7 newsgroup?

Because people like you are bending backwards to respond to any troll
posting here on Windows 7. Windows XP newsgroup is taken over by that
pedo who has recently changed his nym once again.

What are you planning to use it for? Have a look at Box.com - I've got
several free accounts and have always found it preferable to (say) Dropbox.

Box gives you up to 10GB of storage per account with a maximum
individual file size of 250Mb. That's fine for everything I want to do,
but if want to store large video files it may not work for you.

It works through a browser interface, so should be ok with XP. Wait . .
Just tries with my wife's XP system, and access Box via Google Chrome
with no problem.

However, there is an application called Box Synch which you can use if
you want to synch files in certain folders with your cloud storage
automatically. Box don't seem to guarantee that that will work on XP,
but some sources say it will. depending on how you want t o operate, you
may not need it anyway.
