According to the BBC, Google is planning a massive online storage facility to store all users’ files.
The plans were revealed accidentally after a blogger spotted notes in a slideshow presentation wrongly published on Google’s site.
The GDrive would offer a mirror of users’ hard drives. The notes said: "With infinite storage, we can house all user files, including e-mails, web history, pictures, bookmarks, etc; and make it accessible from anywhere (any device, any platform, etc)."
Under the alleged scheme, if users suffered a crash and lost their files, Google’s storage system would have a back-up. The one drawback for total online storage would be difficulties with bandwidth limits for some users. Google has declined to comment on the reports but said the slide notes, which were not for public viewing, had now been deleted.
