Google Nearline upload vs. retrieval

Post by tlyczko »

If I use SyncBack for uploading to Google Nearline *must* I also use SyncBack for file/folder *retrieval*??
Or could I use a different software if, say, the unlikely happened 2 years from now and SyncBack went out of business and the software is no longer available or usable or some other extremely unlikely thing happens??
This question assumes I do have the bucket ID(s) and secure passphrase for file/folder retrieval and decryption.
Thank you, Tom

At the risk of making things *more* confusing, I just now did more reading and realized I should ask the same questions about Amazon Drive and Amazon Glacier.
I'm not real concerned about how fast I can get the data "back" from the cloud, I'm more concerned about *CAN* I get the files/folder "back" from the cloud regardless what software I used to upload it to the cloud??
Thank you, Tom

Hi,

AFAIK, you should be able to retrieve the files stored on the cloud services (e.g. Amazon Drive, Amazon Glacier, Google Nearline etc.,) using their web interface or any other client software. However, I would suggest you to download some files uploaded by SyncBackPro using a different software to see if it is working as expected.

Thank you.
