Syncing Folders and Files Across Clouds

Automator

 

I was thinking this morning, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to sync or upload your files or folders to the cloud without having to go into each service or folder to do so? Let’s face it. If you are like me you might have more then one cloud based storage service. Google Drive, Drop Box, iCloud or OneDrive, you might even have some that I don’t. But if you have any of these¬†what do you use them for? The second part of my issue is that I have files and folders all over the place. My thought this morning was this. How could I save all of these folders and files to all of the cloud services at one time? I found a quick and simple answer in using Automator. Now I know you might be asking what is this Automator? It is a Mac program that allows you to automate curtain tasks. Playing with it for a few minutes I was able to write a work flow that allows me to drop a file or folder onto the small Automator app I built and my files or folders send directly to Drop Box, Google Drive and One Drive. What will be my next step?

I want to work on a Windows application that will do the same thing as this little Automator workflow. But let’s face it. With all of the FREE cloud storages in the world why would you not have your files and folders backing up somewhere? I will keep everyone up to date and let you know what I can come up with.
