Google Drive – Online Storage and Backup [Alternate Download Locations]

When creating documents (whether is MS Office, LibreOffice, iWorks, OpenOffice or whatever your favourite flavour of Office software) it’s always a good idea to have an off-site backup. Cloud storage is one way to tackle this, with the added option of synchronising files between different computers and devices.

The competition has really been heating up lately in the online storage space.

This is not an article about presenting a comparison between the three big main offerings (DropBox, SkyDrive and Google Drive). For that there are many of these around the internet… like here, here and here. (And don’t forget all the other players like iCloud, Sugarsync and box.net.)

However some have noted that it is difficult to download the desktop program for Google Drive direct from Google’s webpage. For those that are interested in downloading this, check out the alternate download site links below.

While there seems to be little news on an app for Linux, there is this tutorial on how to access your Google Drive on Nautilus in Ubuntu.

Update: I found this nice post with pretty charts and pictures if you want to compare and see what is the best online storage solution for you. Check out Cloud Storage: a pricing and feature guide for consumers.
