A long time back I took advantage of Google Skydrive. I would place files there like my medication list, doctors lists, and trip itinerary. I put those files on the cloud so I could access them from my smartphone while I am traveling.
Now I read about Google Drive. I started using that for the same purposes, but how is it different from Skydrive? Why would Google have two very similar programs, or am I now appreciating the differences?
Skydrive is from Microsoft. I just read they need to change the name because it infringes on another company in the U.K.
Google Drive is completely separate and competes with Skydrive.
Dropbox is another competing service, as is a service from Amazon.
They all have their strong points depending on the types of files you want to store. We use Dropbox for a lot of our presentation materials, and it is very easy.
