This is definitely a step in the right direction for cloud computing.
- Sign up for Dropbox (2gb Free) http://db.tt/BA03zwO and get free bonus space after you take a tour and install.
- Sign up for Google Drive (5gb Free) http://drive.google.com and install (See instructions below).
Install Dropbox first. It will create a folder in your “My Documents” folder which will automatically sync anything placed in the folder with your Dropbox account on the web. Then, when you install Google Drive, click “Advanced Installation”. Change the location of the Google Drive Folder to be inside Dropbox (e.g. /MyDocuments/Dropbox/GoogleDrive). Now, any time you create a document in Google Docs/Drive, it will automatically be synced with both your computer and Dropbox—giving you nice security blanket.
Never lose a document from a broken/lost flashdrive or computer again.
