For my Mac friends:

Watch the video on how to perform routine maintenance: 

Free online storage:

I have been using Dropbox for a while and have 24 gig of free storage.  I invite my students each semester or have one of them invite the their classmate so they can get more storage.  The syncing app works great.  New accounts start with 2 gig of storage.

A new player in the cloud storage is called Copy.  New account starts with 15 gig of storage and 5 gig is added when you invite a friend and they accept.  The friend gets an addition 5 gig too when they accept the invitation to a new account.  Has a nice syncing feature much like Dropbox.

One drive functions much like Google Drive starting with 7 gig of storage and the web version of MS Office is available.  I have found this to be less stable with files not opening and getting an error message from MS.  This has a syncing app that works well.

Google Drive

Google Drive starts with 15 gig of storage with all the Google tools for docs, presentations, forms and more.  There is a syncing feature too.  The best part of Google is the integration with Gmail and the sharing and collaboration features are the best.


Using multiple cloud storage can be confusing.  Remembering where you store files can be a challenge.  

  •  Use one service for personal and use the other for business
  •  Get a second Google account for business use.
