Shocked at Google Drive or Gladinet having no file locking / read only notifications
Posted on 2013-01-28
We have a few customers we recommended Google Apps for Business to, and who also require to use Google Drive for their shared storage.
When they use Gladinet Cloud Desktop or Google Drive for PC there is no file locking / read only notifications when two users open a Microsoft Word document at the same time.
This is a disaster as one user could overwrite another's work, I am very surprised and disappointed at how primitive all this is.
What are your thoughts on this? Am i right in saying this doesn't work?
I have tested the latest version of Gladinet Cloud Desktop which came out today.
Should i advise my customer to go back to a LAN environment as they require proper file locking for a group of AutoCAD engineers?
