GDrive? (AKA Google Drive)
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:08:35 am »
google has combined google docs and gdrive.

I tried installing the client last night but couldn't sign in ('missing page'error).

Does anyone here use the new Google 'Drive'?

I just now (literally within the last 10 minutes) installed it after seeing the email about Google Docs moving to Google Drive.

The installation worked fine.  I haven't really started playing with it yet though.

Can't try it at work. Damn. Well at least it's not a general failure.

What OS are you running?

I don't have an email, do have google docs, don't use G drive. Are we expecting docs to carry on working as before?

Hopefully yes. I don't like some of the recent changes to google docs, but this looks like an enhancement.

If it works, then you can use it like dropbox. You can also have an offline version of your googledocs which is editable locally and automatically syncs when you get a connection.

Windows 7 on the machine that I installed google drive on.  I see that they don't have a Linux version yet, so Dropbox still fits my needs better.
