Time and again we have seen many ways using which we can directly transfer files from one cloud storage service to another from our computers. So, today we will see an all new app called Rainbow using which you can transfer your files between cloud storage services directly from your Android device. After you have installed the app, it will show you the list of cloud service providers that you can configure. As you can configure more than one account of the same service, make sure you use a clear account alias to avoid confusion. After you have configured all the accounts you wish to manage using the app, open the Data Transfer tab to manage the files. When you tap on any of the files, you will just get two options and that’s Copy and Delete.
Now all you can do is paste the file to any of the other cloud services that you have configured on your device.
In one way it’s secured and none of your personal files are exposed to a third-party service, but that also means that the app uses your network connection to transfer the files and hence costs you personal bandwidth. So that was how you can easily transfer the files from one cloud service to another and as long as you don’t have a data cap on your connection, there’s no limitation on the number of files you can transfer using the app. The Photos app on iOS and Mac has basic photo editing features, like cropping, retouching, adding filters and manually adjusting levels, white balance, and other tweaks.
Cloud storage for Apple is free for the first 5 GB and jumps up to 50 GB for only $0.99 per month.
If you are an Apple family, the iCloud Photo Library is deeply integrated into all of your devices and keeps your original photos safe and easily accessible across multiple devices. If you have an Amazon Prime account, storage limits are not an issue when it comes to backing up your photos. Amazon Photos does not have any editing features, but it has decent organizational tools that let you quickly create albums and sort pictures by date.
If you have a massive amount of photos, especially high-resolution pictures that take up a lot of data, and you have an Amazon Prime account, the Amazon Cloud service is a great way to back up your photos without worrying about space. Adobe's photo editing service, Lightroom, is an amazing, feature-rich application for photography enthusiasts and professionals. Once uploaded, you can meticulously adjust picture quality using the histogram, tone curve, split-tone, noise reduction, lens correction, camera calibration, and more.
These days, practically everyone is connected to Google in some way or another, whether it is through Gmail, Hangouts, or YouTube. Google Photos also includes some basic editing features, like adding filters, tweaking lighting, and color balances. Google Drive includes 15 GB of free storage with additional plans starting at $1.99 for 100 GB. Microsoft's cloud storage service may be great for keeping your work documents in the cloud, but it also has a nifty camera uploader that can automatically send your iPhone's camera roll to OneDrive. On iOS, you can simply toggle the Camera Backup feature on and all of the pictures on your device will be uploaded to the company's storage service. If you tend to use Microsoft's suite of productivity apps, OneDrive is a great app for having direct access to your photos from other Office apps. Dropbox is an incredibly useful cloud storage service for backing up all kinds of documents. You can add comments to photos and include names from your contacts, which will notify each person that is mentioned.
If you want to be able to share your photos with anyone, whether they have an account or not, Dropbox makes it easy to upload everything on your computer and share it with others. You don’t need to buy the fanciest or most expensive hard drive to safely backup your data.
Once you purchase an external hard drive and have taken it out of the box, the set up on your Mac is incredibly simple. So there you have it… Backing up your Mac with Time Machine takes less time than it did to read this article. What if you have done this process and your time machine backs up to your external hard drive for about a week then stops backing up? I have been diligently using my Passport to back up my IMac and yesterday i deleted my photos in my Iphoto library thinking that they were all backed up.
I couldn’t tell you without seeing more if things actually are backed up or not but I will say that Time Machine only automatically backs up once plugged in and enabled.
Secondly, the advice I give all my students is to never delete anything unless you have no desire to see it ever again. I’ve read through your piece (thank you!) and many others, but not been able to find the answer to my particular issue, and wonder if you can help.
Hi I have started back up and it says it will take 3 hours, I need to use my macbook for other things today can I pause the back up and unplug hard drive and carry on with it another time? To give you a proper answer to your question, it would take longer and more detail than available here but we could fix it during a remote session if that’s of interest to you. Hi there, I may be asking something that has already been answered, but I have done a full first time back up on My Passport (now a Time Machine Backup). You can drag things to the drive but keep in mind if that drive dies, then you have no backup of whatever you copied. If I use a my passport and back up my hard drive, can I wipe my whole hard drive on my computer and still access the information easily. I really wouldn’t wipe your computer for any reason if you have any doubt about the status of your backup.
Most likely, there is a file somewhere in your system that is attempting to be backed up but is incompatible with the format of your drive. What you actually want to do is move that iTunes folder (the whole thing) into your Music Folder on your Mac and then hold the Option Key when you click to open the iTunes application which will allow you to select the library you’d like to use and then navigate to that folder. Yes but keep in mind anything you put on that drive is not being backed up (unless you use yet another drive to copy it) which means if that drive fails, everything’s gone.
I?ve been using my passport for mac as a time machine on two different mac books (home computer and work computer). To be completely accurate, you can view your data without restoring Time Machine to a new computer. I plugged the WD My Passport for Mac into my Mac, and it didn’t ask me if I want to backup with Time Machine.
To answer your question would take several further questions and most likely a more in-depth response.
If you completed a backup with Time Machine (and did not manually specify to avoid backing up certain things) everything was backed up. Unfortunately, that’s something that would be a bit longer and more of a training session than a short answer.
Adding to the above: Both the SSD and the HD are backed up by the Time Machine as discrete folders.
Sorry, I can’t be sure of your question without further details but from what I can tell, you should plug your time machine drive back in and let it complete the backup.
Hi, I recently spent a lot of time deleting photos I didn’t want from iPhoto, but when I did a time machine backup they all reappeared. Is it possible to plug a My Passport drive into a USB port on my router and have Time Machine do backups over my LAN, rather than plug it into a USB port on my Mac?

Microsoft imposes a limit on number of times Windows or other Microsoft paid applications license keys can be activated on different PCs. Advance Tokens Manager provides an easy way to prevent losing count on number of times a Microsoft can be activated, as it securely restores activation data to activate the product offline.
AddictiveTips is a tech blog focused on helping users find simple solutions to their everyday problems. The problem I encountered for what I wanted to accomplish is that there is no option in preferences to move the Google Drive folder to another physical drive. Note: The bad side of this procedure is that if you have a lot of things in Google Drive the whole folder will need to resync when you change location. I was just Reading online about this and found a post from a user on how to move your Google Drive folder content when you need to reinstall.
Under File Types, click Save Database As, from right-pane, select Back Up Database & click Save As button. Now choose a location where you need to create a backup, enter an appropriate name and click Save. However there are times when you might need to transfer a file urgently from one service to another and you might only have your Android in your pocket to help you out. However, before we start, I must say that the app is in its early stages of development and the functionalities are very basic. The developer is currently running a poll on the XDA forum to include new services of users’ choice in future versions. You will also find a section called Local and you can manage your phone’s locally stored data in this section. The delete option will move the file to the online trash and free your space on the cloud drive, while the copy option will copy the file to device’s clipboard. If you wish to save the file to the smartphone’s internal memory to be able to access it offline, just save the file to the local storage. Rainbow doesn’t host any intermediate server to download and transfer your files and your smartphone becomes the point of contact between the services. They're personal, unique, and irreplaceable captures of moments in our lives, and if something were to happen to and we hadn't properly backed them up, then our treasured memories would be lost forever. With iCloud Photo Sharing, you can show off your vacation pics to friends and family with iOS devices so they can "like" and comment on them. The average person will need more than 5 GB (especially because iCloud storage syncs more than just your photos — it's also where your iPhone backs up).
You can take advantage of unlimited storage to automatically upload all of your pictures to Amazon Cloud.
You can easily share individual photos, or share an entire album, using the app Share feature, to email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, and more. With Creative Cloud, you can access and edit images across multiple devices and sync changes as you work. If you are a heavy photo editor and want access to robust and professional tools, Lightroom is a great backup service to use. Having a Google account can be beneficial if you want to use the company's cloud storage to backup your photos.
For example, it will automatically recognize such things as people, places, food, and events, and organize them into collections for you.
If you are big on sharing albums with others for collaborative purposes, Google Photos is a great option. And, you can share files and albums with others by inviting them to collaborate or sending a link.
Like OneDrive, it also has an automatic camera uploader that will constantly update with your newly taken photos.
As this will only be a duplicate of existing data, it’s ok to buy a cheap hard drive.
A new drive may need to be formatted to work with Time Machine so if you’re using a drive that contains any important data, be advised that information WILL be deleted. I believe these tools have tremendous potential but aren’t ready for everyday use just yet.
This happened to me after my computer started acting funny and it turned out I needed to have my operating system reinstalled.
You definitely can but it limits the amount of space Time Machine has to backup, that’s all. If it’s not compatible with Time Machine, it will be wiped in the setup process but you could put files on it afterward.
Just know it will eventually take a while to complete so set aside some time, perhaps overnight. Possibly wipe the drive and start the process over if it’s become overwhelmed or potentially buy a new drive to replace it.
Files will remain on your Time Machine drive until manually deleted OR (depending on where those files are specifically) they’ll be deleted to make room for new files when your drive becomes full.
It doesn’t show the folders that I have with all of my different documents when I try to find them on the portable hard drive.
I used it with time machine a few days after purchase back in May which seemed to work fine but since then it has been unable to complete a full back up. I have used my WD My Passport for Mac a few times to back up using Time Machine but now when I plug in the My Passport the Time Machine doesn’t recognise it has been connected.
You can use Disk Utility to select the drive and format it as a Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) drive, then tell Time Machine to use that new drive.
Keep in mind, you may have two iTunes folders now if you’ve used iTunes on your Mac before bringing over the PC version.
I now have a laptop and would like to transfer a few applications and some of the documents to my new laptop. Some may work in the method you’ve described but not all will and many will require you to install from the original disc or download. When I try to open a folder from the backup of one computer to transfer documents to the other computer, it says I do not have permission to view the folder.
Hopefully everything was backed up on a WD My Passport for Mac but I am not sure how to get everything back to what it was. I had already found that page and tried to do what it says but the only option that comes up for the boot process is my new hard drive and not the Time Machine drive. However, I do not understand what was backed up because none of my audio, picture, or word files are on the external hard drive. I do have a question: My current macbook has an SSD instead of the CD drive and on it I have the Applications and it is also the startup disk.
Time Machine backs up the Internal Hard Drive (your SSD) only unless you specifically alter that. To clarify: The SSD is 125GB and rarely changes and is backed up on the same external drive. Can I delete them all again without going through every folder or otherwise how can I prevent this from happening again? Take Windows 7 as an instance, you can use your license activation key for only 10 times and after that you will need to purchase a new license. It requires both backed up token and configuration files in order to restore the Windows license key to your PC.

Clicking Office Activation Backup will find the license key for MS Office and display it in Product Key field. It’s advisable to verify the token and configuration files in install directory before restoring product license keys. We review the best desktop, mobile and web apps and services out there, in addition to useful tips and guides for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
You can try moving the files manually after designating the new location, didnt tried this but could work and save you a lot of time. Why would restoring files from your old XP install (referring to the old location) cause Google Drive to work with a new location? You will be asked to agree to certain file administration permissions to successfully connect the service. Also, the app only comes in free version with ads with no option to upgrade to premium and remove the ads. There are a handful of fantastic apps for backing up and storing your photos in the cloud, which will keep them safe no matter what happens to your iPhone.
High resolution originals are stored in iCloud, while smaller mobile versions are kept on your iOS device, saving precious storage space while giving you access to all of your photos.
The desktop app, Amazon Cloud Drive, grabs all pictures from your computer automatically, while the iOS app uploads your entire camera roll (including iCloud Photo Library pics). You can add pictures to Google Drive, which will automatically sync to the Photos app, or back up your entire collection of pictures using the Desktop uploader and iOS app. Plus, you can build your own personal albums, or create shared albums that others can access via a link.
You can also download them onto any device by visiting OneDrive Live and logging into your account.
Use OneDrive alongside Microsoft Office apps, like PowerPoint, to import pictures into documents. You can also send a link that will allow the recipient to view pictures without needing to be logged into a Dropbox account.
All it takes is the purchase of an external hard drive and less than a minute of your time to set it up.
Not to mention… Why pay for a service when your Mac comes with an easy and free tool already?
I bought the external hard drive and had the techs at apple load my stuff onto it before the re-instal. There’s probably nothing wrong but some files can be large enough (such as a 216gb single item) to cause some confusion to the system. You may have to reformat the backup to be Mac only (easiest solution) or track down whatever file is causing the problem.
That’s something we could cover in a remote session if you feel you need more help than this.
If I use my external hard drive to backup my Mac, can I still store extra photos and documents, which would take up too much space on my Mac, on the external hard drive and can I still use those files when connected with my Mac?
I’d recommend keeping your data on your internal SSD if possible to keep things simple and using your external hard drive as your Time Machine Backup.
The internal HD which is original with the Macbook is being backed up by the Time Machine and is 1TB. As for the security thing, that’s not part of time machine but probably part of the Western Digital software that came with the drive or an unrelated issue.
However, some users have complained that their Product Key does not work after a certain number of times, in that case you should contact Microsoft Support by phone to get it activated. Once the product key is visible, click Backup Activation to save token and configuration files in the installed directory. Advanced Tokens Manager works for Windows Server, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Office 2007, and Office 2010.
On the meantime just move the folder but don’t copy any content locally, let it re-sync from the web.
The app does not support viewing of files though. You will not even be able to see thumbnail of the files for that matter. Photos are accessible from Amazon's iOS Photos app, desktop Cloud Drive app, or your Amazon Cloud account via the web. You must have a Creative Cloud account, which costs $9.99 per month, to upload and sync photos and edits, but the service also includes access to a number of photo and video project apps, like Photoshop, Slate, and more. I currently recommend the Western Digital MyBook for Mac (Amazon Link) for desktops like iMacs and Mac Minis (or for laptops that never leave the desk.) For laptop users I usually recommend the My Passport hard drive from Western Digital (Amazon Link) or a Time Capsule from Apple (Apple Link) which is both a Wi-Fi router and backup drive in one device. Using a service such as Dropbox (Free service) to store files isn’t the same as backing up. Will Time Machine delete those back-up files because it assumes that the drives don’t exist any more? Can I simply connect the external hard drive to my new laptop and go into the backups Time machine did and drag and drop the items I want to my new laptop? Do i really have to manually add all my files…I though that was the purpose of using time machine as a back up? Both, the SSD with the programs and OS and the 1TB HD are backed up on the same external 2TB drive. However, from what you tell me, it sounds like you’ll need to delete them manually again. However, it’s a great tool to store documents for access on the go or from a mobile device.
It wanted me to do disk utilities on my external hard drive and even if I choose a different disk for time machine to work on it still never completes the back up. If it fits, just migrate your data safely back to your internal SSD and use your external to backup all of that drive’s contents via Time Machine.
Mac software is designed around current hardware standards so every time we upgrade, we’re pushing the system harder. It looks as though everything is backed up but my photo library in TM notes the exact same number of files and total size as last December. Currently I am in the process of copying everything from My Passport to the desktop in case I inadvertently wipe the disk. That’s why computers feel like they slow down after a few years as it struggles to keep up with new software.
Any help you can give would be much appreciated because I can’t find any instructions on what to do anywhere.
So I’m in the process now where I dragged my iphoto library icon from finder directly over to my Passport. Is it ok for me to do this on the same device (use Passport for TM and manually move items)? And is there a way I can actually view my iphoto files on TM so I can see what transferred? I can see the difference in files from December vs now in other folders but can’t view any of the photos individually.
