Cloud storage is awesome. New computer? Download the application and BOOM! But the problem is that they can’t work in harmony. This may sound stupid; You can just use one cloud storage service.

Well, with a bit of tweaking, you can use your computer as an intersection so that they work in Harmony. Sound good? Read on:
