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