Google Drive is undoubtedly one of the most useful and ingenious services offered by Google. Its popularity is likely to expand further from 28th June when users will be able to back up their entire hard drive on Google Drive.
Let’s just say, Google is about to get more personal with you and everything stored on your HDD
At first, download the Backup and Sync tool for your computer depending on the OS you’re currently using. After signing in users can then select particular drive(s) they want to back up. Furthermore, users can always access their files on Drive from a different device if they prefer.
I have been searching for an external hard drive lately, but I think now I won’t have to. However, I am slightly concerned about the confidentiality of personal information once Google gains access to your files.
Pricing for backup storage facility:
Pricing is another important criterion for most users. Google Drive offers 15GB of free space without charging any money, but 1TB of memory costs $100 annually. Google’s competitor Blackblaze charges $50 for unlimited space and syncing functionality, whereas Carbonite and Crashplan charge $59 per year.
In these times when we are heavily relying on technology that can also break down without warning, we must back up vital information to avoid being completely blind during breakdowns.
