So I've been searching for some cloud service to put my porn in. I already use google drive, the best I could find, but have already 3 accounts and it's kinda annoying to switch between them.

Though I keep my porn locally (for now) I use Google Drive for all of my other media, which I access from Plex hosted on a VPS. My Alma Mater uses Google for Education and as part of that, all alumni get email and unlimited drive storage. So if you went to a school that uses Google, you might want to check if this is an option. I know a lot of Plex users use $10/month Gsuite accounts to get unlimited storage. Ordinarly, you must have at least 5 users to get get unlimited storage on Gsuite. You could search on the Plex forums to see how they get around that. I've been pretty happy with Google. The performance is great: I can upload as fast as data can be read from my hard drive.

I can recommend either Box or MEGA. There is no straight answer from Box about their policies against porn and some, including me, have taken that to mean they don't care if you store porn. Keep an eye out for their promotions as free storage is only 10GB. I have a free 50GB account from a promotion and its almost full of vids and some manga.

MEGA has been lenient as far as I know. I don't see them as the conservative type so porn should be safe with them. I mostly have manga on there with some videos and a Gravure vid (erotic but not nude posing or photo session, it had a wrestler on it) I snagged off of someones MEGA link. Free accounts are 50GB, I believe.

If you have Office 365, you can try 1TB OneDrive. They usually won't check, but if you get an account problem that may require MS support to snoop around, it may cause a problem. Also, MS Code of Conduct forbids porn on their premises, not sure if this applies to their Onedrive specifically (ie, the data center that will keep your data).

I don't know what type of porn you'll be storing, but these are the ones I know that give big storage space for free accounts (you get 1TB OneDrive as part of buying Office 365) and ones that have not taken down any of my files.

I've been experimenting with Dropbox and Plex, but I've found oddly that some of it "fails" to upload. I haven't really done much investigation into why it fails, just that it does. So it sounds like there's some funny business going on there, so I'd probably avoid Dropbox.

I guess the question is, do you just want to store it, or do you want to watch it, or retrieve it? If you have a fast enough internet connection at home, nothing beats buying a network connected drive streaming straight from that.

Alternatively, you can "backup" files to stuff like Amazon S3 for dirt cheap, but they sting you for pulling it back out again.

If you're looking to stream files, my personal setup is a Drobo NAS, and Plex. That way you can store whatever you want, and stream it assuming that you have a fairly decent internet connection.

I would NOT be inclined to recommend Dropbox for anything PERIOD. In my experience, their customer service is utterly incompetent and doesn't know what they're doing, and thus, will only run you around in circles for MONTHS. Also, their technical support is nothing short of a joke either. I stopped using Dropbox after I had been complaining about a bug in their Linux version for OVER A YEAR, before I finally got a generic response more or less saying that they have no intention of fixing the bug.

In short, Dropbox is a waste of money and if anything goes wrong, it's more or less a case of "too bad, so sad, I'm glad you're mad!"

Dropbox has never been a pick for me. I don't even know why they're famous. But I keep looking at their free storage and say, "Meh, not enough.". And I'm not even talking about porn.
