Its hear, kinda. I am told my drive isn't ready yet, and I am not on a windows machine, so I am not sure what the windows interface is like yet. 5 Gig for free and $2.50 a month for 25Gb is nice.
no plus ones

- It took a couple of hours and then I got the email. I signed up for the $2.50 plan because I was thinking I might get it faster. I probably won't use that much space so I might downgrade. I currently do not use a cloud drive so I am not sure if I really need it.Apr 25, 2012
- I installed on my PC, but I am so used to using Google Docs through the web interface, I don't know if anything will change for me. I did realize there is no need for me to have Carbonite backup either my dropbox nor my Google Drive directories. That is some sort of feedback loop.Apr 25, 2012
- You are right about Google docs. I am also used to the web interface. I am not sure if I really have a use for google drive but I am trying to find one.
I use cloud services for just about everything (Google docs, google and amazon music, git hub for code) so I don't really have any personal files to upload. Even pictures that I take go to Picasa or I just email them with GMail and they are saved in there.
I do have some movies on an external drive but it seems like the files would be too big to upload to a cloud drive. I was thinking I might try scanning hard copies of family documents and putting them on the drive. I would have to replace my bubble jet printer from 1995 to do that though.
The one really useful thing I have done with drop box from time to time is sharing documents with other people.Apr 27, 2012
