Can anyone explain to me the difference between the cloud storage sites - Microsoft, Icloud, Google etc.
Microsoft keeps popping up on my computer wanting to set up cloud storage
Apple Icloud storage charges me $0.99 a month to expand my storage (I use my photos for that)
Then Google storage charges me a per year fee and if I don’t pay keeps telling I might not get my emails if my “storage” fills up.
I would appreciate if someone could explain this all to me. I don’t think I need 3 different cloud storage.
I would suggest you go to Bill Hammond’s Drop-in Tech Support session on Thursdays at 4pm. Check the events tab of our website for the Zoom link. I’m sure he would be happy to answer your questions.
Jenny, did you ever come in to talk with Bill? Choosing the right cloud depends a lot on your personal needs. Come in on Tuesday mornings if you still need help.
Was there any advice submitted for this question? I am needing cloud storage because I have 2 computers and need to share files.
I found this comparison https://www.tomsguide.com/buying-guide/best-cloud-storage which leans toward iDrive, and cost wise it sounds good. Does anyone have experience with it?
I like Dropbox because it so easy but I ran out of space already on the free version. Who else has a cloud storage product they like?
I did go in to the Computer Center but I totally forgotten Bill's Name - DUH!
I did ask the volunteers there but I guess I didn't present my question clearly because I received numerous responses and the sense I got was it dependent on my needs and usage but I only really needed to use one system. Due to my husband's medical issues I haven't had a chance to drop back by the Center again.
After much thought I decided to no longer use DropBox. It was great when I was working and everyone had access to it (companies provided and paid for it) and knew how to use it. Now that I'm retired, I discovered the majority of my friends and relatives either don't have access to it (and don't want to downloaded or pay for it) and/or didn't know how to use DropBox.
As time permits, I'm trying to figure out my other options because I like to streamline my system instead of using multiple
I love to hear other people's recommendations/responses/comments on this topic.
