New Year’s Resolution (part 2): Organize and Store your PDFs in the Cloud

Last week we discussed going paperless by creating PDFs and storing them in the cloud, and today we’d like to continue that theme by looking at some of these services in general, and how the process can be automated.

The good news is that there are MANY cloud storage services that you can use to accomplish this type of cloud storage with various levels of free starter accounts.  You just set up an account with the particular service that’s best for you, designate a folder to ‘sync’ on your PC, and then just copy or save PDF files to this folder.  Here are some of the major services we’ve tried:

How do you use these services to back up PDF files?  Easy.  Once you’ve selected and installed your cloud storage service, just use Win2PDF to save your files to your PC’s designated Sync directory.

And if you want to automate this even further with Win2PDF, our latest Win2PDF 7.5 release has an automatic naming/saving feature.  If you enable this feature, you can automatically have all of your files saved to the folder without any prompting.

So, which service is best?  It really depends.  Each service has a free option with a starter amount of storage.  We’ll be reviewing these services in the next couple of weeks and post our findings here to help you determine which one may be best for you.
