Google Drive – Beauty

Where they fail in accepting homeschoolers are valid schools they excel in file syncing.  I think they are free and fast and dependable and easy.  Their interface works and it works well and it always syncs in the background.  So make a free Google drive account.  drive.google.com.  They give you 15 gig free.  I use Google drive for my most often used files or things I want to share with someone else because Google also excels in the easy file sharing.  I personally upgraded to 100 Gig for $1.99 a month.  Seriously…$1.99 a month for 100 gig.  That’s peanuts compared to other companies.  I however, changed my utilization and now could go back to the 15 gig free but I like knowing I have 100 gig. It’t not 1 Tb but that’s ok.  Like I said I use it for my current, often used things because it’s fast it’s good on a phone and it’s reliable and it syncs pretty quickly.  Where Google errors is in their tiers.  You go from 100 gig to 1 Tb and the price goes up to $9.99 a month.  Why would I pay $9.99 for one user to have 1 Tb when at Microsoft on the educational pricing I get 1 Tb for 1 user for $1.50.  Then Google blunders again by jumping to 10 Tb for $99.99 a month.  There is no inbetween.  They need to let you increment 100 gig 200 gig, etc.  Jumping from $1.99 to $9.99 is too much.  So use either the free 15 Gig or the 100 gig cause that’s a good deal.
