Brothers in Tech: Back-Up – Deep Dive #2: Online Cloud Backup

Although we don’t want you to have your head in the clouds…it may be a nice place to back-up your data. In the second deep-dive episode regarding data backup, the Brothers discuss the options for creating and maintaining an online backup, including:

  • Functionality
  • Speed
  • Price

In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):

  • Brian’s Pick = Google Drive File Stream: Note that Brian mistakenly called this “Google Sync”, which is a different feature. File Stream allows you to mount Google Drive as a network drive, and sync files from Drive to your device. Free (Mac & PC).
  • Alan’s PickDropBox: One of the gold standards for online storage that allows you to store, retrieve, and use data from various apps. 2GB provided for the free account, $9.99/month for up to 2TB of storage (Mac & PC).
