Google: Store All Your Files in the Cloud

Google has announced today that over the next few weeks, they are rolling out the ability to upload all file types to the cloud through Google Docs, giving Google users one place where they can upload and access files online.

Because Google Docs now supports files up to 250 MB in size, which is larger than the attachment limit on most email applications, Google users will be able to backup large graphics files, RAW photos, ZIP archives, etc. to the cloud.

This means that instead of carrying a USB drive, Google users will be able to use Google Docs as a more convenient option for accessing files on different computers.

The feature will be enabled for Google accounts over the next couple of weeks.


  1. It would be unwise and even dangerous to store anything valuable in a cloud. Only an n-th redundant copy, heavily encrypted with an unpopular cipher (not the AES or PGP), could be considered reasonably safe today, but not more than that. Even the mere fact of having undecipherable data is dangerous to the owner in some situations. Today it's illegal in some places to use strong encryption, tomorrow it may become illegal at your location.

  2. all your info are belong to us.

  3. I love Google, but Google Docs is truly a horrible program. The only people who think that Docs will compete with Office are those who apparently haven't used either.
