Is there an individual file size limit for Google Drive?
Funny that yesterday Microsoft updated their Skydrive service and released a PC/Mac client. Also, since they are adding paid tiers, you'll have to claim your existing free 25GB to get that grandfathered in (New accounts going to 7GB free.)I'm assuming Google Apps users are going to have to wait longer for Google Drive?
They told me they'd "notify me" when it's ready. Did you get the same notice?
It's way too little space for my GeekNights backups or my personal video stuff, but I think I'll use it for "active" files. Things I'm using/sharing/editing between machines on a regular basis.
It isn't useful for actual backups, but I never expected it to be. It's mostly a convenient way to have the same files accessible on all of your devices.
Another advantage is I can sync the Google Drive to the NAS, getting a nice local backup of my Google Docs and such.
I think I'm going to consolidate all of my MyDocuments folders and USB sticks into Google Drive. Then I'm going to sync it with all my computers. Then I'm going to sync it to a USB stick. Then I'm going to sync it with a Linode. Then the Linode will sync with S3. Also, encryption of important things, like my accounting files.
I just realized that I haven't really used my "My Documents" folder since I got dropbox. What the hell is in there...*goes to perform digital archaeology*
I think I'm down with this. I'm just going to wait until they have an API, so I can back it up to S3.
