    Seems like they are intentionally trying to get Microsoft to sue them.

    They can pretend a sow's ear is a silk purse, but it remains a sow's ear.

    Re: Google Drive changes to Google One, with extra paid options

    Out of all the companies out there that can store my data online (not that I would do that with anything important) Google is pretty much at the bottom of the pile...the only 'online storage' I'm using them for is a backup of my digital music collection as it offered the most space for free lol.

    I'd be much more likely to use MS (still not likely) or rent/buy my own server if I wanted online backup these days, although having a close family member with a backup nas is much more likely if I wanted to go down the route of offsite backup.

    Depending on your use case and bandwidth etc, Amazon seem to have a good offering with S3 - you can encrypt it with yor own keys so nobody's got access. Not free, but pretty cheap.

    That's like the second name change in 6 months - for what ever the reason google drive has been renamed to Backup and Sync from Google on one (and only one) of my pc's.

    loving the 200gb price though, definitely will be using it

    That's the route I'd go, if I went "online storage" at all.

    And by "route", I don't mean Amazon specifically, but a paid-for route where encryption is under my control, and the company doing the storing have zero access to unencrypted data.

    It is effectively what I do now, except I'm my own storage company.

    I try to keep two common axioms in mind with ALL my online dealings :-

    1) There ain't no such thing as a free lunch, and

    2) If you can't see what the product is, the product is probably you.
