I was looking for options for Google Drive integration on #!. I was wondering what if anything people have done for this. I know there is a project called grive, also Insync (which seems to have lots of dependencies).
I have looked into just using dropbox, but google's storage is so much cheaper.
So any opinions or solutions?
I've heard of these too but no experience with them. The easiest would of course be to keep it open in a browser tab, or migrate to Android. Short of this, Dropbox or Spideroak are the way to go, the latter corrupted my backup files though so, obviously, not recommended. I'm not knowledgeable about how much Google is giving you, but how much storage do you need?
There's also another service called Box which for a few days gave away 50GB but has no Linux client. You may be able to run the Windows client in Wine.
I can invite two people to get 50Gb each as well, let me know if you're interested. Sorry not to be of more help with the core of your question.
Thanks for the reply Barnabyh,
I need at least 80gigs right now..... I would like to throw all my music, photos, and docs in the cloud. As a permanent backup.
I may use drop box. Seeing how Dropbox has the smoothest integration with nix... it's $9.99 for 100gigs ..... Where the same price would be 200gigs on googles servers. But the native app may make the extra cost worth it.
But here is Google's pricing for storage right now.
Storage Monthly Rate
25 GB $2.49
100 GB $4.99
200 GB $9.99
400 GB $19.99
1 TB $49.99
2 TB $99.99
4 TB $199.99
8 TB $399.99
16 TB $799.99
