Hello fellow FI members.....

If you are a modder and use/store files on google drive please be aware that they are doing away with the service in a couple months and your files may be erased.....please backup to another file sharing/cloud based storage.....

For those who want to read about it here is a link from CNET....

Google Drive's file storage is not being shut down. The only change being made is to Google Drive's app, which is used for uploading and synchronizing files. Backup and Sync, the new replacement app, replaces Drive's app. Files that you've uploaded to Google Drive's file storage are still going to be available and will not be replaced.

Google probably should have notified me of this, being a Google Fiber subscriber and all.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.

I would still backup to another cloud/storage just to be safe....google sometimes has a mind of its own lol when making decisions like to combine google voice and hangout into google duo then splitting it again....their decision making is very fickle at best.....
