Use CloudHQ to sync your Google Drive and Dropbox Accounts






If you’ve got a lot of cloud storage spread out across multiple cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, SugarSync, and Microsoft SkyDrive then you may suffer from the same pain I do in trying to keep some or all of the files in these service synched with the other.

cloudHQ provides the solution for that. CloudHQ makes managing and syncing multiple cloud storage services incredibly simple – and you don’t even have to install any extra software on your desktop

Here’s how the service works: first, you sign up for a free trial at cloudHQ’s website using your Google account, and you select the services you want to sync. In my case, I decided that I wanted to sync my Dropbox and Google Drive accounts first, although you can also select Basecamp, SugarSync, Box, Evernote, SkyDrive, and SalesForce. And just in case you ever need help along the way, there’s a convenient chat box that appears on the lower, left hand side of the screen.


Examples of When to use cloudHQ?

Backup Your Data

cloudHQ can be used as a backup solution. For example, if you use Dropbox, Evernote, and Basecamp, with cloudHQ you can backup and sync all your Dropbox files, Evernote notes, and Basecamp projects to Google Docs. So if somebody steals your laptop with Dropbox on it and that person then deletes all your Dropbox and Basecamp data, then thanks to cloudHQ you still have a backup - and no data will be lost.

Consolidate Your Data

cloudHQ can be also used as a solution to consolidate all your data in multiple cloud services to a central service. For example, if you or your company uses multiple services the cloudHQ can consolidate all data from multiple account to a central account to easier management.
 

Simplify Team Collaboration and Asset Management

cloudHQ can also simplify team collaboration  by syncing all your data between multiple cloud services and accounts. For example, cloudHQ can sync all your Basecamp projects with a folder in Dropbox (or Google Docs or Box). So all your Basecamp data will be in Dropbox. Then you can use Dropbox (or Google Docs/Box) sharing capability to share the entire folder or just portion of it with your team members.

This means:
 
  1. All members of your team will have access to Basecamp data (documents, messages, todos) both via Basecamp interface or via Dropbox/Box.
     
  2. Each of team member can just upload files to Basecamp by just 'dropping' files into a folder on their PC.
     
  3. This is also great for sharing things with your clients: you can give your client access to project data by sharing it via Dropbox (here is how to share data via Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/help/19/en).
