Google preparing to launch Google Drive this week with up to 100GB of paid storage? | Android Central. When Google launches Google Drive this week, with a rumored 5 free Gigabytes of cloud storage, and up to 100 Gigabytes of paid storage, the other cloud storage services, such as Dropbox, Box, Evernote and my favorite, Paperport Anywhere, will be hard pressed to compete. If you get a free account with each of them, and can compartmentalize your cloud storage requirements, you could store everything in the cloud for free. I have been testing Paperport Anywhere for all my scanned stuff, and love it. I am still not going to store client confidential stuff in the cloud; but, it seems that is where we are headed. Are you comfortable with security of data stored in the cloud? This reminds me of the debate over sending email over the Internet. I used to hear that it wasn't a secure method of transmission, because the data could be intercepted when parked at some remote server somewhere on its way to its destination. My answer always was "So putting confidential info on a flimsy piece of paper, and sticking it in an envelope, and handing it to a postal employee, and sending it through the mail, and having it sit in a mailbox somewhere until the recipient picksit up, is more secure?" The test will always be what is a "reasonable expectation of privacy", and "reasonable" will always be impossible to define. Risk. It's what we do, isn't it?
