Windows 7: Syncing Local Files with Cloud Based Storage Services

Syncing Local Files with Cloud Based Storage Services

Hello Forum,
I am a student trying to figure out the best way to manage my files. I would like to find a seamless solution that will allow me to Create files on my home PC, View and edit them on other devices, and then see those changes reflected in the original file. Also, vice versa.

So far I have tried Google Drive and OneDrive, but I have one primary complaint; I don't like how Folders and Files must be placed within respective folder found via the taskbar. For example, It seems that in order to get a file to sync via Google Drive, I have to place it in the isolated Google Drive folder on my PC.

I think what I would like is to be able to keep my files in their original location on my computer, and have a Cloud storage service reference that file and its location. That way I can keep everything in the right place so my workflow can operate as usual, while having the luxury of viewing and editing the same file remotely.

Hopefully my needs were sufficiently articulated. I look forward to hearing from anyone and am eager to hear about possible solutions.

Thank you!
