1. put files in google drive folder
2. work all day on them
3. make sure all files are synced before turning off work computer
4. go home to find that the file is saved at a much earlier version
The first time it happened I thought it was a fluke. Now googling around apparently this is fairly common.
Anything out there cheap like google drive but reliable like dropbox?
- I want to store 40gb of data and not have to transfer anything.fourth
- I haven't used a thumb drive in yearsfourth
- sounds like a personal problemalbums
- Old schoolset
- why don't you want to use dropbox? seems to work fine...ohhhhhsnap
- its expensivefourth
- i have this exact same drive. keep losing it. and the loop is too small to attached to my keyring...sine
I'm paying for 100Gb... and some folders just stopped syncing... no idea why. Truly a pain in the ass...
any good recommendations on a similar service? I'm annoyed by paying for something that doesn't work.
I use Dropbox, seems worth the money so far.
rackspace has a similar service... been thinking about it.
I don't have this problem.... I have used google drive on a near daily basis for a while... it does work better without a lot of browser windows open, and it does work better in Chrome than IE or FF.
Do you have flaky wifi? Did you sign out of one google account into another? did you check your email and such while writing documents?
wait, this may be a cache on your other computer issue?
I was thinking dropbox... might have to change soon if I can't figure this out. Pissing me off...
The other shitty thing is I have files that will not sync on google drive. They just have a red x on the corner of them. While other files in the same folder will sync. Yesterday I took a folder of these files and dropped them into dropbox and they synced perfectly.
The multiple google account thing might be a good point as I have my personal google login and one for work. I have google drive installed on the toolbar of all my machines. But at work I switch back and forth between my two accounts in chrome.
Dropbox always worked 100% for me. Never had any issue.
I've been using drobbox forever and it's been flawless. I recently started work on a project that was on Google Drive. It was terrible. Fucked up files, deleted things, failed to sync etc... I convinced the whole team to move to dropbox and we haven't had a problem since.
I'm going to try amazon's offering. It's limited in comparison to dropbox (when it comes to sharing files) but it's a 1/4 of the price. If that doesn't work out then I'll pony up for dropbox
Dropbox is the way to go. Absolutely worth the price. I even store, and encrypt financial data on there. It has never failed me, and it blows all the other services out of the water.
Beating a horse, but yeah Dropbox. Got my small biz employer on their Teams option which isn't cheap, but is just as solid as the non-biz offerings.
Pros: Dropbox works everywhere and on all the major OSes, including your phone. And as far as syncing goes it has worked flawlessly for me for many years. On OS X it offers snazzy symbolic link syncing that will spoil you.
Cons: one security breach about a year ago for 10 minutes that basically had no known repercussions.
twooh, what do you use to encrypt before uploading to dropbox?
i use google drive, but not the sync app, it really sucks.
Didn't want to open a thread for this so I'll put my question here:
Would you say that WORD and PPT is the exact same apps as that which is in GoogleDrive. Are they parallel? Can I create deliverables for these two apps on them?
