Google Online Hard Disk, Store and Acess files from anywhere
According to Eric Schmidt, Google is developing an online file storage system called Google Drive (or Gdrive) that creates a mirror image of data stored on consumer hard drives.
When Google released GDS 3 with Search Across Computers feature, Gartner and EFF immediately recommended disabling SAC since it transports data outside the safe walls of the enterprise even though Google transported and stored data in encrypted form.
Now Google Drive will copy (upload) files from local computer to Google Servers without encryption. Though Google users will have the option to decide what files are stored online, it remains a big surprise that "privacy advocates" have still not (over)reacted to GDrive.
John Battelle is not willing to "store 100%" of his data on Google servers while Michael strongly feels that Google should put it (Google Drive Information) (back) up on the web.
Will Google bow to pressure, again ?
