Tech Tip - Google Drive/Dropbox

Friday, June 29, 2012

You can create your own cloud file storage! When you install Google Drive or Dropbox (both work the same but if you have a Gmail account then Google Drive is easier) it will put a folder called "Google Drive" or "Dropbox" in your My Documents folder. Then anything you save in this folder will be automatically backed up on Google's servers or Dropbox's servers.

Then if you install Google Drive or Dropbox on another computer, tablet, smartphone, or laptop, all of the files you saved in the Google Drive / Dropbox folder will automatically be downloaded onto the other devices. So now you can access all your files anywhere on any device, and best of all you get several GB of storage for free!
