Desktop Sync to GDrive (Google Docs) and SkyDrive All at Once

Image
I wish there is a desktop folder that is connected to both Google Docs and SkyDrive. Whenever there is new content in the folder, the new bits and pieces will be synced to both Google Docs and SkyDrive.

It can be a backup folder with two destinations in Google Docs and SkyDrive.

It can also be a online repository that is RAID 1 across Google Docs and SkyDrive. If one is down temporarily, you can still reach to your documents from the other.

It is a Dropbox like functionality based on both Google Docs and SkyDrive.

Sounds interesting? read on …

SkyDrive or Google Docs?

Image
SkyDrive was a pure online storage with 25G free space, until the merge with Office Web Apps. Now you can edit Word document and Excel spreadsheet inside a web browser and save them directly into SkyDrive. It is a generic online storage with web-based application support.


Google Docs was a pure web application play with web-based word processor and spreadsheet editor, until it introduced the all-file-type support. Now it becomes a generic online storage with web-based application support. People usually refer to it as “GDrive”.

The two started differently. Now they seem to go in the same direction combining online storage and online applications.

If you are looking for an online storage solution, which one will be the best for you?

Gladinet File Sharing

Have you ever asked any of the following questions?
How can I get remote access to all the files on all my computers? How can my employees gain remote access to all the files they need when they are not in the office? Is there a file sharing solution that allows files to be shared from any desktop, server, or the cloud? Is there any way to avoid spending days uploading all my files to the cloud just so I can share them or access them remotely? Can I create a private cloud for all my local and cloud storage? Gladinet has introduced a new service called Gladinet Cloud Space which solves these problems and creates a file sharing platform by creating a private cloud.
