I need to store an approx. 65Gb folder in a 'Cloud' application.

Customer Question

I need to store an approx. 65Gb folder in a 'Cloud' application. It is a continually growing folder. Is there an economical backup solution I can use? I would need to access the files from more than one PC. I'm using Windows 97 and use Google Apps. Thank you.

Many thanks, ***** ***** the Google Drive solution 'automatic'?

In other words, can I link it to one or more folders on my 'master' PC and rely on it to backup regularly?

Or do I have to backup manually?

Yes, when you copy files to the drive (its a new drive like a C drive) then its synched online automatically.
But you have to work from this drive so you store all your files on it instead of C drive for example.
