I saw Google's Drive on the news today and it looked interesting. I have a laptop and two desktops and sharing files can be a bit of a pain. I have never used cloud services though for storage as I assumed the internet part would make file transfer slow.
And I've never bothered with a shared network drive, partly because I could never get my PC and Mac to like each other and partly as it won't help me when not at home.
So I wondered if anyone uses cloud services for file storage and sharing and how you get on with it? Is it really practical to dump photos onto the cloud and you access them anywhere, or save Photoshop files to the cloud, stuff like that?
I know you can share files with anyone, but can you set it so they can view/download only and not modify or delete?
Are there any major disadvantages to using the cloud for storage?
