Defecting from Google Drive

After Google Drive decided I could choose between having duplicates of all of my folders or deleting all of my files, I decided to defect. I plan to be free of Google for productivity software in three years, if I can.

My new choice for cloud storage is Copy.com, which starts with 15 GB (+5 GB if you sign up with a referral link). Two features I really like:

  1. Backup Shortcuts: you can drop shortcuts/symbolic links into the folder to automatically arrange for the originals to be copied onto the cloud as a backup.
  2. Human Service: you can email the support desk and eventually summon a human. This beats Google’s method of “compete to see if we care!” approach to support.

If you fancy trying Copy.com for yourself, here’s my referral link.

Gonna give this a look...thanks for referral link!

P.s. the irony is not lost on me that i signed in to g+ to post this....im on my tablet in bed catching up on a month of blogs!

*grins* So far, Copy is working out for me. Very generous with the file space, but I guess they have to compete on space as they're 'last to the table'. ;)

All the best!
