Any happy users here?
I'll try to Drive Google soon. Are you?
Google and Apple battling over control of my life.
2G plus extras for people who sign up with you, PLUS heaps of aware apps at Dropbox
5G plus extras for people who sign up with you at Sugarsync, great for sharing
50G if you got on board at box.net at the right time, or 5G normally, and lots of collaboration/sharing opportuniy
25G if you were quick enough to claim it on your old Skydrive, and 7G if you were not.
I think, for once, Google has been behind the 8-Ball instead of in front of it. I'll take a look but I'm already using the four I've mentioned, and they suit me well.
I think I'll go with Apple. They want to sell me stuff, and sometimes I can say no. Google Drive would mean Google indexing my docs so they can sell me. No thanks.
I'm with ya. It's bad enough that I use gmail and the google search engine.
I've been using Dropbox. Pretty easy to use.
I agree - Dropbox just works.
I tried it. Skydrive works just as well and has 25Gb of storage so Google Drive is a no go.
I feel like a Luddite. What do you people use these things for?
I use Dropbox to sync and move files between my work laptop, Tab, 'phone, desktop and the netbook under the TV in the drawing room.
Anything that I want on all my computers/devices. For example, I have a budget program which is dropbox aware, so I can store its database on dropbox. that means I can access the exact same database on my imac and on my MBP.
Another example. I have a truckload of ebooks, I keep them in a few places, so that I don't lose them.
I upload photos to it, and send a link to people that I want to give access to the photos. Or send them an invite to join that particular Dropbox folder. Much faster than burning photos to CD or emailing them.
Off site RAW file storage. I'm not so interested in synching - I just want a back up for all my RAW files that's not in the house.
