How to get 25Gb of Cloud Storage for your TATEMS data and more… But there is a catch.
I have been using a service called Dropbox a cool cloud storage service that I have installed on my desktop computer, my Android phone and my iPad. It's a very cool and easy way to transfer things like photos from one device to the other.
For example, I can snap a picture on my phone and instantly upload it to DropBox and then later open it from my desktop computer or iPad.
I can also use it as an extra backup for data files or any document.
The only drawaback with Dropbox is that it only gives you 2 Gigabytes of space for free. That may be enough for most people but if you need more starage there are some other options.
Google just came out with a similar new cloud storage service called Google Drive that gives you 5GB of storage for free. Google says that thier service will also be searchable using Google Search technology. Google has apps for the Desktop and Android phones but not Apple devices yet.
Note: I just went to the Google Drive site and as of 2:30 PDT Arril 25, 2012 they are saying it's not ready. Although I was able to get it on my Android Phone. But after installing it on my Android Phone, I got the same message saying it's not ready but will notify me when it is
That sounds good, but if you really want more free storage space Microsoft is offering 25GB of free storage with thier SkyDrive service. But to get the free 25 GiGs you have to have to actuallt use the service before Monday April 30, 2012
You can use any of these services to save backup copies of your TATEMS data file or any other data for that matter off site.
To get the apps for these for your Mobile device just search for the service name or click the links above to get them on your desktop.
I just added some stuff to Microsoft Skydrive to make sure I get that free 25GB of storage and I reccomend you do too.
I don't see any reason not to use all three services for ultimate safety.
Take care and have a great weekend.
