    Have fun passing on everything then. It's pretty much stating what it does, and pretty much for any other service like it.

    Changes to our policies (updated).

    Welp, I thought it was free. No thank you, 5gb? I'd rather stay with my current free 50gb box account.
    It's not even comparable to Box, Box is pretty crap. Very small filesize limit, no desktop application etc.

    You guys realize that they aren't going to do ANYTHING with your data other than store it. Why would a company that large single you out just to steal something from you. And it would have to be a singling out process because if they stole and blatantly used everybody's data then nobody would use any of their services anymore. It's business to put shit like that in their in case some extremely extenuating circumstances come up (like legal action based on something you store on their servers).

    And you don't have to "switch" just to use another cloud storage. I'll personally be keeping a dropbox, skydrive, and google drive just so I have that much more free storage.

    so now I don't understand why anyone would use storage that large with a service like google; anything that takes up that much space is likely pirated data like movies, music, etc.

    i doubt someone's got a 2tb drive filled with word documents and rage faces downloaded from 4chan, except a few extreme autists.

    I use Box mainly for school and shit like that, where the largest file I ever had to put on Box was a text file of 10mb.

    Recently started using Skydrive, I love it more than even Dropbox. 25GB free and some neat stuff like Fetch.

    I think that Google's servers are virtually unhackable and indestructible.
    I'm pretty sure that nothing but the simplest of systems is unhackable.

    Source photoshop files, 3d scenes, raw video and phots, I could name many more. Of course a mortal will rarely need 2tb of cloud storage, but I assume that's aimed at businesses.

    Everything is hackable. And even if it isn't, just assume it is (if it's a system of yours)

    Better late then never. I practically live off my Dropbox -- If I can tie it into my Google account, this will get all the better

    Yeah. I was going to say. I love google, but it's generally a bad idea to give a public company that's known for sharing information your files.

    That is the same with literally anything that you can upload files to
    Youtube, Facebook, Dropbox etc etc
    Sites will typically lay claim to using your content for advertising, but the 'create derivative works, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute' parts are not.

    It's not saying 'oh god google is going to take my poetry and sell it to justin bieber', but consider people who'll use this for business files? raw video data, cad files, etc? Those are not good rights to give up, enforceability of eulas aside.

    I just requested access. I also have dropbox, but rarely (if ever) use it.
