Google Drive Testing Full Offline Storage What You Need to Know

first_imgIf you’re someone who likes to save your documents locally and not necessarily keep everything in the cloud, Google Drive is testing a new feature to help you do just that.In a blog post this week, Google said that its G Suite users can apply to be part of a beta test that would let them save PDFs, images, Microsoft Office files, and other documents not saved in a Google format to their local machines. The feature was previously available on Google’s Docs, Slides, and Sheets files, but is now being added to Microsoft Office and other formats.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

You’ll also need to be using the Chrome browser.These are all of the conditions that need to be met in order to test out Google Drive offline storage:The domain enables Drive File Stream use/installation (and is therefore a G Suite domain).Admins have enabled offline for the domain / device using the admin console settings.End users are signed into Chrome, and use Drive File Stream with the accounts associated to the whitelisted domainEnd users have offline enabled from within Drive or Docs settings.If you’re interested in joining the beta, you can do so by clicking here and applying. If you’re accepted, you’ll need to sign in to your Google Drive, choose the files you want to save offline, right click on them, and mark them as “Make available offline.” You’ll then be able to download them to your local machine.Google is accepting applications now.This post originally appeared on Tom’s Guide.How to Lock Down Google Drive FilesHere’s the One Gmail Setting You Should Activate NowHow to Upload Documents to Google Drive by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf you’re over 40 – this game is a must!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoMayo ClinicManaging psoriatic arthritis painMayo ClinicUndoComputerWorldBrandPost: Empower Your Employees, Empower InnovationComputerWorldUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoForbes.com100 Women to Look up to Right Now, and WhyForbes.comUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more

Avira Phantom VPN first look

first_imgAvira Phantom VPN first look by Martin Brinkmann on May 10, 2016 in Internet – 8 commentsAvira just launched Avira Phantom VPN, a free and paid virtual private network (VPN) service for Android and Windows devices.The free version of the service is good for 500 Megabytes of traffic each month but you can double that amount by registering an account. The pro version is available for €59.95 and is good for unlimited traffic.Both share most features including a no logging policy for visited websites and access to all country servers the virtual private network service makes available.Avira Phantom VPNInstallation is somewhat problematic on Windows, here is why. When you download the program for Windows and run it afterwards on your system, Avira Launcher is installed first.This is the central application for all things Avira on Windows. Using it you can install Avira Phantom VPN or any other Avira application.The installation itself is quick but requires an active Internet connection. Avira displays a register dialog afterwards which looks on first glance like one of those forced dialogs that you cannot close.Turns out, you can close it by selecting the x icon in the upper right corner of the screen to forego the registration and use the VPN without account.SettingsFirst thing you may want to do after installation is open the program settings. There you find the country selector that you use to switch between different countries the VPN supports.Avira Phantom VPN supports mostly European countries, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, Poland and the UK. The only two non-European countries are Canada and the United States.The program is set up to send diagnostic data by default which you can disable in the settings as well. The only other option available for free users is to start it at system start.The settings highlight one feature exclusive to the pro version, and that is to use the VPN automatically when the device is connected to an untrusted Wi-Fi network.Using Avira Phantom VPNA click on the secure my connection button connects the device to the selected virtual location.  Avira Phantom VPN highlights the connection status in its interface afterwards and displays the traffic quota there as well.Download and upload speed were fast on a test system. While the VPN did not max out the 50/10 Mbit connection, it managed to deliver 43/8 Mbit instead.I noticed during tests however that connections to sites took a bit longer to initiate. There is a bit of a delay before sites are loaded regardless of server you select or browser you are using.This does not happen when the test device is connected to other VPN services.Avira Phantom VPN does not leak the public IP address when WebRTC is being used.The free version is limited to 500 Megabyte per month which should be enough for regular web browsing but will burn through the traffic in less than an hour if you consume media for instance.While you can bump up the free traffic to 1 Gigabyte per month by registering, this too won’t be enough for demanding services.You are probably wondering what happens when you reach the traffic limit. The connection to the VPN is not cut off immediately but the interface displays a disconnection countdown but traffic continues to flow during the countdown.The VPN is disconnected automatically without prompt or further warning which is problematic from a security/privacy view point.The pro price is quite high especially when you compare it to established VPN services such as Private Internet Access or others. Private Internet Access is available for $39.95 per year for instance, and it offers better device support, more countries, different protocols and features such as a kill switch.Closing WordsAvira Phantom VPN is a new VPN service that is speedy and easy to use (apart from installation). The free version is good for light web browsing due to the imposed traffic limit.The pro version does away with the limit but is quite costly when you compare price and features to established VPN services.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 5 votes Software Name Avira Phantom VPNOperating System WindowsSoftware Category NetworkLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

Huerta Ceballos says that the entry of drugs into the country is not only by air or land, but also by sea. “It’s usually an average that is based on a demand from our country and the country to the north.” Based on their data, he said an alert is maintained in advance so they know when these illegal flights will arrive in the country. It is from this system that they have detected about 100 aircraft suspected of carrying out illicit flights mainly from Venezuela and Colombia. last_img read more
