Could Microsoft OneDrive be your Google Photos replacement?

Could Microsoft OneDrive be your Google Photos replacement?

Google Photos will get rid of its free storage tier starting June 1, which is when the company will flip a switch and any new image uploaded will count against your Google account storage.

How to sync your Dropbox or OneDrive files on a Chromebook

How to sync your Dropbox or OneDrive files on a Chromebook

With Windows programs on the way to Chrome OS and Linux and Android apps already available, it's possible to get a lot of work done on a Chromebook while you're offline.
