I use BitTorrent Sync to keep folders on my MBP and Mac-Mini synchronised, the data goes through the cloud but isn't stored anywhere but on my machines and devices.

It has the added advantage of being free and only limited in size by your choice of storage drives on each linked device.

The issue with the leak is that people used poor passwords that were easier to guess.

and/or security questions, the answers to which are public record.

Best technique with security questions is to lie, consistently - after all you only need to know how to answer the question - the answer doesn't have to be accurate, just consistent and memorable.

For example I use a well-known celebrity name for the answer to all mine, "first car", "best teacher", "first high school" - all of them have the same, unrelated-to-any-question answer...

The chances of anyone guessing these "answers" is frankly zero....

I got office 365 student, 85 dollars for 4 years of office plus 1tb of free storage on OneDrive (SkyDrive), I have been using that ever since. Also Flickr gives 1tb for photo storage and you can sync camera roll from iPhone just like dropbox does.

If Dropbox offered more space for free users besides 5gb I would be more inclined to pay premium, but the competition offers better.

If you are looking for free online storage, Weiyun from Tencent. is something to consider. They are giving away 10 Terabytes of storage right now. The following link explains how to take advantage of the free offer. I have been using it and it works well.

The problem with these (at least last time that I checked) was that the mac desktop application was not translated in english
