Google finishes Gdrive, personal internet storage

Internet titan Google has announced plans to launch a file storage system, which will enable users to securely save files on the Google hard drive. The files will be available for access via the Internet, from computers and mobile devices anywhere in the world. The service will offer a yet-to-be-specified storage amount for free, with additional storage space available for purchase. The announcement of the storage service is apparently not new news, as rumors had been circulating in the past about a similar service, dubbed as Gdrive. The Wall Street Journal sees this new product as a way for Google to increase their stakes in the long-time rivalry with Microsoft.

There has been some concern regarding the issue of privacy, with the user’s files being posted on the internet, and will be accessible to hackers. A Google spokeswoman addressed this concern, saying “It is certainly approached with the utmost sensitivity on our end…We have extensive safeguards in place currently to protect our user data and we have a very strong track record in this regard.” Google has also assured attention towards copyright issues, as the storage service will allow file sharing, hence risking the illegal distribution of music and other copyrighted products. More details available in WSJ report. Are you crazy enough to let someone else manage your personal data?

    No hell no but it will be interesting to see how much space is going to be provided and is their an option of sharing with others like our dear old RS

    if theres no size limit and enough space chances of this becoming next best place to download files
    Or hell just backup our dear old heavy music /Movies/pr0n collection :)

    “Are you crazy enough to let someone else manage your personal data?”

    Depends on what the data is. I’m not going to store information that can be in any way used against me, but I might use it as an easy to access back-up for some minor sh*t. You’ll have to see it as a school locker: good to store some heavy stuff, but most certainly not your valuables! Like so many things on the internet, it’s all about common sense.

    Nope… school locker yeah – same rules as there – never leave your weed in it! And since all my storage is weed anyway… nope! They will own people soon – to be honest this idea sounds pretty scary… Just imagine, they have your conversations, images, even work… probably too paranoid but I will not use it, don’t need it. But thanks anyway ;)

    Hmm, you could just copy everything you want on there to a truecrypt container. Would make it very safe, and with the ever growing speeds of internet connections worldwide, this will probably the future of file storage.

    Wonder if it could be used as the new rapidshare…

    If it’s free to make a gdrive, you can simply store whatever warez you want and give out the password.

    Encyption of uploaded files is OK but anyway this is a oportunity for gOOgle to cooperate with RIAA and get som nice extra money. If I’m paranoid that doesn’t mean that they are not watching at me :)

  16. josh
    November 27th, 2007 | 17:09

    this would be nice for some of the movie releases. you could put the file on your gdrive and then post a link here. sorta like the xdrive links!
    no more worring about uploading

    November 27th, 2007 | 17:09

    Actually sensitive files IS what I would use it for. Imagine your PC and your DVD/CDs with backup all stole. Nice, huh?.
    Now let´s adress all the problems listed. True, access is granted to them so I´d upload them heavily encrypted and problem solved.

    November 27th, 2007 | 17:27

    Sounds good to me. Can’t wait. I think it’s a great idea. I’m not stupid enough to put my source code or any other sensitive data on the “GDrive” but I have tons of photos, things i’ve downloaded, and other misc stuff I can put up there to free space locally. It’s also good to know we can share these files. Those that bash this service are lame. It’s not like what they are doing is a bad thing.

    @16: Good ol’ Kurt Cobain uses that line on a song. It’s just so true.

    @20: You can be as paranoid and original (or rebellious) as you want, but still Google is the best search engine out there.

    I think Gdrive is a good idea (not theirs, for sure!), I remember when the original Gdrive came out using Gmail accounts, it was good.
    I have to agree with most of you, if I upload a 128/256bit encrypted file, no one will take the time (and/or resources) to crack my files.

    Google is love. ;)

    It seems like some of think of Google like “the new Microsoft”, but only much more evil. So what if they look through your files ?, I mean come on man… why would they bather with looking though that much irrelevant data.. please… give them a break, they are just trying out a new way to gain market shares…

    When google finds out that most of the files on their drives have DVDRip.XviD and HDTV 720p ending with .mkv and .avi they are going to get worried !

    It’s a good idea if you have documents or mission critical files. I don’t think they designed the system for file sharing in mind. Companies might find this useful for a extra level of protection, besides raid and offsite backups, of coarse there are other server farms that can be used, but then again, what will make Gdrive different? It’s a good step forward for Google, and coincides well with their Gmail system…. which already offers over 5Gb of mail/file storage, per email address. Besides, even if you upload sensitive files to any offsite location, you should always encrypt the data in a secure container.

    –Good step forward Google & Staff!

  32. Kwagsch
    November 27th, 2007 | 18:47

    @ 26, 28, 18 – you are right! Google is not interested in a single persons data…. they are far too busy to make money – which no one can blame them, why, don’t you go to work everyday? ;) Why are you going to work? – MONEY! lol

    Im a IT consultant for several SMME’s, besides RAID-ing several servers and also doing offsite/remote backups, it’s not necessarily enough.

    Not everybody is heavily into piracy.

    I’d be more worried about your hotmail account. Amazing how many people worried about privacy use hotmail accounts. You don’t suppose “bill” has a filter on your emails? You bet yore ass….
    Don’t be so naive to think that microsoft is running that for free because they’re such wonderful people. bill has been a crook since he stole DOS and hasn’t stopped yet. Anything for a buck…and then his holier than thou attitude about cleaning up the scene. What a hypocrite…..

  34. Emm
    November 27th, 2007 | 19:09

    Most likely this will be used as an alternative to the file host that we have to use right now… and hoping without any waiting times or size limits!

    November 27th, 2007 | 19:41

    Yeah, Im gonna trust Google with my private files! Sad thing is many people will thinking their files are gonna be kept private. -true true

    thats isnt true google will take their time and recourses….as you guys said google is worth billions a couple seconds to crack a 256bit password for on of their super computer is less than 1% of its cpu…so dont think that google wont look..just i doubt they will.. what i think you should do is put like huge(i mean huge) password…then let the keygen fly around on them web you download then use to keygen to unlock…..sure this still the solve whole private issue but it is good for file sharing…and i dont think google server will be fast anyways i garentee you they will have about 1mbit at maxx!!! on a lazy tuesday you will get that…that is why im say f*** it go buy 10 tb and stop worring about memory..i have 400gigs and still got 100 gigs unused…after patriot act nothing online is safe..they even monitor what you check out at the library..

    dont get me wrong i still use google..im not that paranoid but just telling you that big daddy is watching..but it just doesnt care…!!!

  36. Vodoo
    November 27th, 2007 | 20:00

    im gonna install my Windows on Gdrive.

    now that’s just one of the random, pointless and idiotic things you can think of when trying to express approval or dismay on this “technology”.

    as most of you have said, important things should not be fiddled with carelessly to the point of loosing and/or damaging certain data which many could regard as invaluable and possibly harmful to the owner. (personal information)

  37. Darth Arcon
    November 27th, 2007 | 20:21

    If I can direct link to the GDrive, I will use it to host various files and such. Otherwise, it is useless to me…

    >Are you crazy enough to let someone else manage your personal data?

    Umm – you mean like your personal email data on gmail!

    Well given that email with associated attachments is the most personal data for most people, then I guess the answer for myself and millions of others is yes.

    #1, noob comments get flamed the most. ever heard of file encryption? and since this is your first time using this site as well as rapidshare, you should realize that rapidshare has limitations, big limitations, and to remove them costs money. Consider gdrive a better alternative thats free.

  45. hikaricore
    November 28th, 2007 | 00:26

    The only way I’d care is if I could mount the “drive” locally.

    sudo mount gdrive.google.com/hikaricore /media/gdrive

    Otherwise fsck that chite.

  46. wreckedandjealous
    November 28th, 2007 | 00:29

    I personally think this is a good idea.

    I have lost 20gb worth of photos and stuff in the past.
    while I now have a 2tb back up haddrive… all it takes is a housefire to loose it all.

    sure I am not going to put any “questionable” content on gdrive, like movies, or personal documents…
    but things like photos… I dont really give a crap if ‘someone’ wants to look at them. those people really must have no life looking at photos from partys of a bunch of people who they dont know.

    I will be taking the ‘school locker’ approach to this

    Montreal case first test of new anti-piracy law
    Updated Tue. Nov. 27 2007 9:56 PM ET

    CTV.ca News Staff

    The first charges ever laid under Canada’s new anti-piracy law have been filed in Montreal, CTV News has learned.

    The city is known among police and Hollywood studios as a hotbed of film piracy, where movie premieres are routinely recorded using digital camcorders and later sold on the black market or shared on the Internet.

    At Guzzo Cinemas in the east-end of the city, management only keeps a single copy of each film they screen. During a recent premiere of “Dan in Real Life,” police arrested an audience member allegedly recording the movie.

    One of the theatre’s owners, Vince Guzzo, claimed the suspect was caught with a camcorder in plain sight.

    “Yeah, he just put it on the floor and had a tripod, and the neck would lift up long enough to be over the seats,” Guzzo said in amazement.

    The suspect, 23-year-old Louis-Rene Hache, would not speak to CTV News.

    Police allege he was copying the film without permission, and prosecutor Maryse Trudel claims he intended to sell it.

    This past year, Hollywood studios threatened to delay film premieres in Canada because of perceived piracy issues, especially in Montreal and Calgary.

    Ottawa responded with legislation that made the actual act of recording a film in a theatre illegal, whereas prior to the new law it was only illegal to copy a film for commercial use.

    Under the new law, anyone convicted of pirating a movie for sale or rental could be sentenced up to five years in prison.

    Douglas Frith, of the Canadian Motion Pictures Distributors Association, applauded the first use of the law.

    “It’s a big step, especially in a market like Montreal where there’s so much piracy going on,” he said.

    Hollywood’s own piracy investigators were sent to Guzzo Cinemas, considered to be one of the most pirated multiplexes in North America.

    They used high-tech tools to scour the theatre for any camcorders.

    “It’s almost like it can actually detect the noise that camcorder makes,” said Guzzo. “Even though you and I can’t hear it.”

    Hollywood studios say they are not aware of a single case of film piracy inside a Montreal theatre since Hache was arrested. But none of the charges against him have been proven in court
    iKNOW this is off topic but i thought it needed to be posted somewhere an i dont know rlslog e mail addy to have them do an offical post

    On the topic of XDRIVE, I once stored a personal movie on the site. i had to delete it from my desktop at the request of my then girlfriend. i figured i could rename it and hide it somewhere on my pc, but the thought of her finding it and killing me was unsettling. so i created a free account, and threw it on xdrive, where I also started storing my installs and drivers for when i reformat my pc. I went back a while later– and movie was gone– BUT all the other files were still there!!!! unfreakin beleivable…

    When it comes to google I will have to say yes. I would let them store my personal files on their drives. In that case they would be protected from sudden harddrive failure and viruses. Google are so big and so serious that when they say it’s of critical importance that the files are protected they I bet they will be.

    So what have higher odds?
    1. My hardrive crashing.
    2. A hacker accessing my harddrive and copies my files.
    3. A hacker accessing Googles hard drives.

    I would say 1 and 2…
