Homegroups and network file sharing make it easy to access your PCs file from another PC on the same local network, but accessing your PC’s files over the Internet takes a bit more setup.
The Onedive documentation allows for PC file sharing (albeit NOT on Windows 8.1 ) http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/fetch-files-pc-ui
I have a PogoPlug box that makes it very easy to share files on the Internet; you plug the box in, sign in to the service, and anything you put on the box's attached hard drive is instantly available online.
It's kind of a NAS box, but primarily intended for cloud storage. With the Pogo backup software, you can also take backups from your PC straight to the Pogoplug, and you can either mirror your drive to online storage or just back up straight to their online service.
Use Copy.com, like DropBox, but with 20GB free storage (using this link: https://copy.com/)
For Windows, Mac, iOS, Android etc
