Google Drive is a cloud storage service operated by Google Inc. It allows you to store photos, videos and files from your computer and mobile devices to access them from anywhere. There are 2 types of files you can store on Google Drive i.e. 'Files you can edit' and 'Files you can not edit'. Files you can not edit like music, videos, .zip files and much more. Once you upload a file to Google Drive, it doesn't matter what type of file you have uploaded. You will be able to access, manage, share and organize it from anywhere. If you are uploading a file to edit online, then you need to convert it to a Google Drive format.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
