I’ve just found a tool that is making some of my biggest Google woes go away!
It’s called cloudHQ, and it’s really cool. You give it access to your cloud storage accounts – such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Evernote and so on; and it enables you to transfer files between them – whether on a one-off basis or as a continuous synchronisation.
You can also add details of more than one account for the same service, which is dead handy.
There is a free trial, and if all you are doing are one-off transfers you might get away with just using that. I’ve signed up for a Pro account which gives me unlimited data transfers, so I can leave it whirring away in the background.
Here is what I am using it for at the moment:
- Transferring all the files in my old Google Drive account into my new one (this was one of my biggest headaches!)
- Copying all the photos I have in Dropbox into Google Drive (which I can then make accessible in Google+ and on the photo gallery app on my phone)
- Copying all the notes I have in Evernote into a folder on Google Drive as a backup
Here’s a video explaining it better than I can.
Hurrah for cloudHQ!
