Replacing RW syncing on DropBox with Google Drive?

#1

DB has really nicely added a load of new features to my premium account, AND doubled its size… And increased the price! Cheeky fuckers.

I only use a third of the existing space and while I don’t mind paying the extra price, the way they have gone about this price hike leaves is a sour taste in the mouth, so I’m thinking of moving away.

Google Drive has a package with enough space and it’s a fraction of the price, but I’ve never used Drive to sync RW stuff.

At present, I have everything on DB: My RW addons folder and all my projects. I do this as I work across three different machines.

Anyone doing the same with Drive?

I cannot really offer anything useful on Google drive, but I had an issue recently with Dropbox after clean installing Mojave on the main computer. Suddenly I exceeded the three machine limit on the free account and was forced to remove other devices before I could add this computer. It’s a free account and I get that, but Dropbox seems to be moving in a less helpful direction.

I once had a problem with the RW addons stored in Dropbox, even though it was only being used by one computer, so now I store them in the documents folder. I did wonder about enabling iCloud to back up the documents folder, complete with addons and projects. Would that work for you?

I would trust an online storage system powered by the devil, managed by Hitler and built using empty egg cartons before I’d trust a cloud service that involved Apple.

Try https://www.pcloud.com

Everything that dropbox is but better, all the features DB has dropped over the years are supported by pcloud. 10GB on the free plan.

Not really looking at alternatives, as such, except Drive, perhaps.
