Back Up and Sync from Google

Image result for google backup and sync

Google announced earlier this year that the Google Drive app for Windows devices will be depreciated and eventually will stop working sometime next spring. However, there are two apps taking its place.

Google Back Up and Sync

This app is already available and is my preferred method of syncing Google Drive with my PC. New features include:
  • Syncing all or some Google Drive content to your PC
  • Now you can sync files not stored in the Google Drive Folder such as:
    • Documents
    • Pictures
    • Downloads
    • Desktop...
Remember the days when your local I.T. department said "Never save anything to your desktop"? Well with Backup and Sync, you can save files to your desktop and it will automatically be backed up in your Google Drive. Since G-Suite for Education offers unlimited storage, you can backup your home PC as well.

The Internet and My Life Thus Far...

Our Early History Together The internet has been around, long before I came into being on this planet. From the early days of the ARPANET in the 1960s to the creation of the WorldWideWeb, the internet was still nothing but a shadow of what it has become today when I was born in August 1986. Being a child of the late 80s, growing up in the 90s, I grew up with the internet explosion that would occur and continues to impact my life in various ways.

My introduction to the internet was in 1996 at the age of 10, on a, then brand new, Packard Bell PC with a 133MHz processor, 16MB of RAM, a 1GB hard drive, and a 28.8K modem.
