Are online storage solutions like Google Drive appropriate for class work as well as personal files?

Printer-friendly versionSend to friendPDF version

Yes, cloud storage is appropriate for storing class work and personal files, and very convenient because you can access the files from wherever you are as long as you have an Internet connection. The CSU has a contract with Google that protects the ownership and privacy (but not the security) of files you store in their system, but no similar arrangements exist with Dropbox or any other provider of cloud storage solutions, so files stored with these other providers are more vulnerable.
