Evernote and Google Docs offer free versions of file storing and backup software. Evernote, a free software download available for computers, cellphones and tablets, stores files and syncs them between different devices. You can pay a monthly fee for added storage space and additional files types that are not supported in the free version. Google Docs is accessible through your Google username and password, and stores files online via a website address. Users upload files much as they would an e-mail attachment and can view these documents by accessing the website from any device that supports viewing attachments.
