Episode 1764

Jeff from Nashville, TN

Jeff wants to know if Google Backup and Sync is a good way to back up his hard drive. Leo says he's used it and it works. It's not really designed to be a hard drive backup, but he can use it for something like Google Photos. But also remember that Google Drive isn't private. People can see user data online. So he wouldn't use it for sensitive data. Leo recommends iDrive because it does not only encrypt data, but it also has versioning, so it keeps versions of the data. It's a much better solution.
