I've only recently discovered that Google Drive is unlimited storage with a student email address. I'm uploading 2TB of backups to it now from USB drives for redundancy and mobility. Amazing solution. Really awesome and free. Apple is definitely behind in the storage space. There are a couple of gotchas. File Stream Issue: If your Google Drive holds 500GB, a 500GB disk will be mounted on your MacBook therefore using up 500GB on your machine. If you delete files from that mounted disk those same files get deleted from the online version of Google Drive. A big bummer. Any way around this? I'm also using Backup and Sync but see below. Google Drive Folder/File Management Issues: I'd like to place everything into one folder but unfortunately Google Drive keeps My Drive items and Computers items separate. Online you can "Add" folders from The Computers location to the My Drive location but only sub folders. This is insanely retarded. Try doing that with 500GB of sub folders. Plus then afterwards you'd have to delete the dupes you don't want. I'd like to use File Stream again and add another 1TB of data to it but I cannot since my machine does not have an extra 1TB. I am using Backup and Sync for this since it does not require virtual storage, but that means you need to keep your USB drive connected while it's uploading. That's why I would prefer File Stream because once you dump the files into that mounted Google Drive disk you do not need to keep your USB drive connected. Any tricks?
