    Re: News - Google Drive boots-up

    I might sign up only to get the extra Gmail space, only 7Gb by default.

    Although I use Dropbox I don't like having to have a separate folder dedicated to the service. It means if I would like to use both Dropbox and Google Drive I'd need to have 2 copies of my files on the same drive to get them synced with both services... I think Ubuntu One is going to be my primary cloud storage solution because of the passive sync feature allowing me to have the folder structure I want not limited by an application specific folder.

    i do wonder if that will auto renew as its no longer available according to my account, i expect them to mail me in 11 months to tell me i have to change to paying per month.

    shame i cant get it yet, it tells me its not active on my domain even though it is.

    Well it's tightly woven in with google Docs, it was just a one click for me and you're going to end up using it generally so I think Google have it made.

    My Google Drive is not ready yet. Must be a delay getting the Google Tarmac (c) in.

    Gmail showed me 9+GB today, perhaps that's related to the cloud's release. Anyway, no need to do anything unless you really really want that extra less than 1GB space.

    Sugar Sync allows you to sync any folder you goddamn please
    So you only need to have 1 copy of your files on the same drive (2 defies the point of syncing!). And you still only need 1 copy if you double sync the files with sugar sync and another service such as google drive/dropbox.
