Gmail App Changes Will Cause Most IFTTT Features To Stop Working

The Best Free Dropbox Alternatives (For More Than 3 Devices)

Nopparat Khokthong/Shutterstock.com Dropbox now limits free users to a maximum of three syncing devices at one time. If you need more devices and don’t want to open your wallet, Google, Microsoft, and even Apple are superior to Dropbox. This is a similar restriction to the one Evernote put in place. Evernote’s free account only lets you sync your notes to two devices. Both services are clearly trying to convert more free users to paying customers. Google Drive – 15 GB Free Google G...

Google Drive Has Quietly Become One of the Best Backup Options Around

Michael Crider/zentila/Shutterstock Google Drive, compared to the attention services like Dropbox and iCloud get, seems to just sit out in the wings hardly looked at.

After my hard drive crashed and lost 3 months of work, I devised a foolproof backup system to protect myself in the future

When I returned home in September, I decided to find a foolproof method for backing up all my important data so I would never lose it again. I decided on three layers of backup security. I now back up everything to two highly reliable external hard drives and then...

Google Drive has a pretty bad spam problem, and it seems Google doesn't care. Spammers can share files that automatically appear in your Drive, and there's no way to stop it. From a report: Google Drive's sharing system is the problem. Since it doesn't offer any sharing acceptance, all files and folders shared with your account are automatically available to you in Drive -- they just show up. To make matters worse, if you only have "View" permission, you can't remove yourself from the share. It'...
