Hello again;

Quick question, should we use Dropbox and Google drive to save whatever?  I think we have to pay for Dropbox and I don’t know if we even need it?  Advise me wise one!

Hey Chuck!

Both Dropbox and Google Drive are great. You can probably choose just one unless you have lots and lots of stuff to store in the cloud. We use Dropbox primarily for all business related stuff and Google Drive for content-related stuff, mostly my working files. Because Google Drive is so accessible from anywhere. Dropbox is so dependable and automatically synchronizes to both Jim’s and my computers. For either of them, I doubt that you need more than what is offered for free.

We did a Button show -actually 2- on Dropbox. Watch 32 first.
