Cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and SugarSync are convenient, efficient--and notoriously insecure. Files are rarely encrypted, data transfer is typically not protected, and companies are usually able to access your files (even if they state they won't, they may be legally compelled to do so).
