so there is no help line to resume uploading a large file after shut down pc ?

Bellissimo, molto bravo. Una curiosità: ma se io acquisto quello da 100 GB a 1,99 per avere più spazio, vorrei che mi facesse da HD virtuale e ok. Perché quando io, ad esempio, copia una cartella sul Drive (proprio per avere un backup) io poi nel mio spazio utilizzato la vedo doppia? Cioè, non dovrebbe essere solo sul drive la mia copia? è come se mi duplicasse la copai della cartella nel mio HD e mi occupa più spazio!! non dovrebbero essere due HD virtuali... e quindi, a questo punto mi conviene creare solo una cartella del drive e fare un collegamento sul mio MAc per lavorarci e si aggiorna da solo.. e se poi non ho collegamento? grz ancora e bravo!

Please help, when I opened WhatsApp today it automatically took me to the backup chat page and to select an account, however when I entered my Google email address or phone it gave me these error messages: "This account already exists on your device". I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Is it just impossible to backup whatsapp to an account already registered to the same device?

Hello! I will be teaching an orientation course to new international students this summer. I'm hoping to be able to utilize your video as a resource. Do I have permission to use this? If so, how would you like me to cite it? It's great, so thank you so much!

Hi Katie, thanks so much for asking! You're absolutely more than welcome to use this video as a resource, no need to cite but you can offer a link if you think it would be helpful for your students.

very attractive and amazing one you taught me an organized lesson and i had that needb4.
Google drive is a trap, after my google drive 100Gig subscription ended, though I still have more than 2 gigabytes free space out of 115 gig (100gig-subscription + 15gig-free storage), I am unable to send or receive email anymore. Conclusion don't link your Gmail to buy google drive storage if you don't plan to maintain it and pay every time you want to receive emails.

I have scanned photos to my computer but they don't show up in google photos....how do I get them in google photos?
Vrtical Year ago
Hi Nettie, you have to upload them from your computer to Drive. You might try opening your browser, navigating to drive.google.com or photos.google.com and clicking/dragging the photos from your desktop into the browser window.

Is there a way to save photos to Google drive or Google cloud. I just paid for 100 GB of storage, is there a way to save the photos from my phone, to this storage?

@Vrtical Thank you so much, especially for your promtness Carl
Vrtical Year ago
Hey Carl, yes! Try Google Photos at photos.google.com. You can download the Google Photos App from the app store and sync photos from your phone. Remember that your most private photos are not truly private on any Google platform, but it's a very simple and seamless service to use.
