  3. Hi, thanks for the video , v useful, i have a question, i want a file saved in common storage like icloud or one drive, to be accessed by a small group of people, is this possible?

  4. I use Onedrive mainly for backing up and syncing my Mac (s) and recently I realized that Onedrive is the one that causes my computer to turn on the fan for no particular reason and drains the battery at a very fast rate

  5. I use Dropbox cloud and have the 2TB storage option. The reason i use cloud storage is every single external hard drive i ever owned has given up the ghost after 3 or 4 years (no warning, just won't work suddenly). If i only had one external hard drive, i would have lost everything saved. Luckily i have always had two hard drives at all times backed up with the same files in duplicate. Using Dropbox now, i know all my files will be safe and i can access them on any device and anywhere in the world. No need to travel with external hard drives, wherever i go.

  6. If you looking for any thing for a free storage,best of going for google drive,get the most of 15 gig of data for free,If you create two google accounts,you getting 30 gig for free storage in total

  7. I’m no Microsoft Fan Boy, but one note: this review is focused on casual usage, and ultimately describes Dropbox as the most professional solution.

    There is some truth to that, as Dropbox was an early leader and and had many early adopters. Dropbox enjoyed easy adoption because it was simple, but over the years features have been added, pricing tiers etc, and along with this came complexity.

    This review approaches OneDrive as if OneDrive is a freestanding cloud storage system. Not true. Many people will approach OneDrive as an enhancement of Microsoft Office (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc.). If you use Microsoft tools in business, OneDrive has enormous professional capability that is not reflected in this video. The premise of this video that Microsoft 365 is a perk of OneDrive storage gets this completely backwards.

    Just to be fair, Google Drive is also part of an ecosystem that includes productivity applications.

    iCloud also is part of a larger ecosystem of productivity applications that are included with every Mac computer. These apps are actually very good, and more than capable for almost any user. The question is not so much in their power, but in how they interface into systems of standards in business and education, which are more likely to require Google or Microsoft because Apple lost their early lead in the education market.

    I tell people these days that to understand technology you have to understand business models.

    Google’s products appear to be free because they are not products. They are bait to catch fish, which in turn are packaged into product. If you use Google, you are Google’s product. Profiling users and selling them out to the highest bidder is Google’s business.

    It is common knowledge that Apple products are expensive and carry a premium price. To state that differently, you know how Apple makes their money. But you also know that Apple is serious about privacy and security. They make a quality product, and you pay for it. What they don’t do is sell you out.

    Microsoft is a mixed bag. Their business model began as selling operating systems (Windows) to anybody who wants to build a computer. Since Microsoft does not vet PC makers, most PC makers sell low cost machines that subsidized the cost of the computer by software companies who pay to have their software preloaded onto the machines. Collectively, this stuff is called “crapware” by IT professionals. At best, it pesters buyers to enroll in software subscriptions like anti-virus and whatever. All this garbage certainly eats up clock cycles and compromises the performance of the computer. It also wastes your time, and can hammer you with sales pitches. At worst, it may contain spyware and compromise your computer, and by extension, your privacy. This can potentially expose you to serious problems like identity theft.

    Most people want the cheapest thing they can find, and if you go to Walmart or Sam’s Club you are going to find Chromebooks (Google Android) on the low end, and subsidized PCs with Windows for a little more money. Why are these machines cheap? 1) Partly because they are low specification, low performance, and low quality. 2) Partly because the computer is subsidized by companies who pay the manufacturer to preload their software as a means of marketing.

    The paranoid among us might be concerned that, since most all consumer computers are made in China, that the Chinese government is involved in having advanced spyware tools embedded into the hardware of the computers. Using these means, it is entirely possible to bypass normal security in ways that cannot be detected at the operating system level, by using anti-virus scanners, for instance. In fact, there have been reports in the computer press (not the garbage political conspiracy rumor mill) that China may have counterfeited integrated circuits and inserted these into the supply chain as materials are moved inside China. In this way, any manufacturer might be duped into installing what appears to be a legitimate part, but the altered counterfeit adds instruction sets that can be used by the Chinese state to compromise computers without detection by end users.

  8. Somebody will badmouth any of these services. I’m being tortured by Dropbox currently, but I’ve use them all.

    Any product that involves sync operations with the cloud is inherently complex and prone to failure. Possession of a few vocabulary words like “backup” does not certify that anyone has read the directions. There are differences, and there are inconsistencies of implementation in each of these services. Don’t assume otherwise. When you get hurt, learn from it, or else you may learn that jumping ship to a different service is just a change of venue into a different world of hurt.

    All of these services are a case where the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know.

  9. 0/10 would not recommend OneDrive

    Im literally watching this video specifically so I can escape from the nightmare that was OneDrive! There is so much that is wrong with OneDrive. For example, the fact that the so-called "Backup" feature isnt actually auto backup, its just another external storage location (NOT a backup of locally stored files). There are ways to do it with a cmd prompt but, for the average person, thats too complicated.
    But by far the worst feature is that fact that it cant cancel a file sync once its been started. Once when I tried using the "backup" feature, I didnt realise it was gonna sync EVERYTHING (since it doesnt give you any other options), so I had to wait for a whole day for it to upload since there is no option to cancel (only pause).

    OneDrive is lacking so much in settings and features. The only people I could possibly recommend it to is those who need the most bare-bones cloud storage.

  10. What a waste of time, free stock videos throughout the whole video, uploading files, dollar burning, people using laptop, company brand logo, there is nothing of value in this video. Even the information given is all obvious, no usability review. Anyway this video is one of those videos that reads out the pricing and features list from the website then reformats them with cheap stock free videos. It’s the type of video that attracts non-techies who will like it eventually, but leave without more knowledge than what the respective websites of these services can provide.

    By the way Microsoft Onedrive extra features you pay for are bull crap, you buy an Apple device and you get their office suite preloaded for free, plus FaceTime, so why does Microsoft charge me for it rather than include it in Windows for free.
