comment Any disadvantages to using Google Drive for personal backups?
@slhck Good point, thanks! Actually, if that's all I can expect in the answers, it implicitly answers my question. In retrospect, I could have made it more clear that I wanted to compare "backup services vs. file sharing services," not specifically Google Drive vs. anything; I just thought Google Drive was a good shorthand way of saying that, but I see now why that was wrong!

comment Any disadvantages to using Google Drive for personal backups?
Thanks. I edited my question to remove the "I would consider other options" paragraph. I am not asking for recommendations or opinions about the different file sharing services available, but rather, is there any problem inherent in using a file sharing service for personal backups. I couldn't think of one, but maybe someone here can.

comment Any disadvantages to using Google Drive for personal backups?
Thanks. I am more curious whether there is an inherent disadvantage to using a file sharing service as a backup solution, but I will consider SugarSync along with the other options.
