Hows this for poor programming practice. Google drive creates a temporary folder with a random name containing around 20MB off data each time it starts and doesn't delete it. These are the folders on my system created by my starts today. Regular use of CCleaner is indicated.

I'm actually finding myself liking the feature set of Sugar Sync the best right now. It would be a bit better if they had a linux client, but I can get to the files via the website from Linux, so it's not a complete bust.

I find Skydrive to be very disappointing Microsoft has to come up with something better.
- you cannot upload an actual folder which may contains sub-folders via the web
- the file size limit needs to be increased, 100Mb isn't really usable for video

I'm currently using dropbox and skydrive , haven't tried google drive yet.
Also knowing that all of these are syncing solutions for sure if you delete one folder on one machine it would disappear. Alaways have a decent backup service there's alot that back up to the cloud crashplan, carbonit, mozy, zoolz, blackblaze and many more. All of those services keeps versions to avoid any (accidents).

I used both of them before. Skydrive was for all my office documents and google drive for backup.

So, I'm wondering if...
