One of my favorite tools that I use for backing up files and creating files is Google Drive. I have used this service for many years through many jobs. And I’ve used it for personal files as well. The nice thing is that your files are accessible from anywhere you can access google online.
I often backup my book covers to Google Drive. I also do lots of spreadsheets there. I have one where I plan my publishing schedule for each year. Since it is on Drive, I never worry that I will lose the info if I should have a computer failure. I can access it from my tablet or phone and any computer I may be working on at the time. Here is a sample of my worksheet that you can save and copy into your own Google Drive if you are interested.
Another feature I like is that I can use the Doc creator when I am away from home and need or want to write some on my manuscript in progress. Then when I am back to my computer, I can just access that and put it into my writing program of choice. This provides me with lots of flexibility and means I am not tied down to my computer all the time. And it is backed up where I can access it easily. I like that.
If you haven’t tried Google Drive before, I encourage you to check it out. It is virtually painless to use and it sure is handy.
