    Not only is the relationship between Google Photos and Google Drive confusing but the new Backup and Sync software is driving me crazy.  How about doing a show on Backup and Sync then maybe I can figure it out.

Have you heard of Google Takeout?    Pretty Cool you can download all your data.

Suggestion for Jim’s App of the Week.      Files GO by Google.   Just released and will be a great product.  


Cheers.     Ron

Backup and Sync is a bit of a mess … I did just do a video on it for Windows. Check it out and let me know what you think: 

Takeout is a good way to feel safe that you have all of your stuff … but I find it difficult to find your stuff in the resulting takeout files. You?
