Hard Drive Recovery Associates: Everything To Know About Cloud Storage

Irvine, California-based Hard Drive Recovery Associates is reaching out to the community with a new blog post where they share useful information about different cloud storage options. Their new article is titled ‘Getting Your Cloud Knowledge On This Lockdown,’ and it is especially aimed at those working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Cloud storage has risen as the most convenient, if not the only feasible option to run home offices nowadays. The all-time high number of people working from home means that everyone, including those who had not previously heard of Cloud Storage, are now being forced to adapt to these new circumstances," states Jack Edwards, a data specialist and representative from Hard Drive Recovery Associates. The benefits of adopting cloud storage are extensive, with accessibility and affordability being among the main reasons behind the popularity of this solution. This, however, does not mean that the challenges found in adapting to this new form of storage are non-existent.

Edwards continues, "Most people don't know what different cloud storage options have to offer, nor what makes one better or generally more desirable than others. This is what prompted us to take action and share our knowledge and familiarity with cloud storage networks, hoping to lend a helping hand for those looking to adopt it. After all, a tool is only useful if the user possesses the knowledge necessary to take advantage of it."

Hard Drive Recovery Associates explains that, for the most part, an individual will pick one out of four different options when looking at a cloud storage provider. These include Microsoft OneDrive, Google One/Drive, Dropbox and Apple/iCloud. Each option comes with different benefits and functions, and they may work better than others depending on what the user requires. While choosing one of these is not an easy task, the local data specialists have made an effort to describe, in clear and easily understood terms, the advantages that each provider has to offer.

Microsoft OneDrive is the first cloud storage service recommended by the company. This service holds on as one of the most convenient solutions, competing closely with the other options in terms of functions and ease of use. One huge advantage Microsoft OneDrive has over Google or any competition in this field is its seamlessness with other products in the MS Office suite. This is the best option for users who will mostly upload content from Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, as its integration facilitates the transfer of files.

Google One/Drive is also a top contender for the best cloud storage solution due to the popularity of Google's services. Any attachment received through one's Gmail account can be quickly saved on the Drive platform to be shared with others just as easily. This solution receives constant updates with new features, assuring the millions of its users that it is still on an innovation hot streak.

Another reliable option described in the Hard Drives Associate article is Dropbox, which is one of the earliest players in the cloud storage game. This long history as a cloud storage solution has earned them the loyalty of many users, who continue choosing Dropbox despite the rise in popularity of its competition (Google and Microsoft). Dropbox gets ahead of these solutions by focusing only on cloud storage, appealing to people who want a no-frills, easy-to-use product with fewer bells and whistles.

Lastly, the company's final recommendation for the cloud storage service is Apple's iCloud. The main selling point of iCloud is the seamless integration with the company’s devices, including their phones and computers. They note, however, that this solution still falls behind its competitors in terms of features and benefits, lacking important functions in some departments that have been widely explored by the previously mentioned services.

While cloud storage should help most users keep their information safe, Hard Drive Recovery Associates reminds the community that their team is always on standby to provide assistance with recovering lost data from their devices.
