Tip of the week: Move files quickly between cloud storage services
Thanks to William Alford for the tip: With the cloud storage wars heating up between Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox and others, users want to test other services but don't want to manually download and then upload all the files that are in the service they're currently using. There's a faster way: the Mover service works with OneDrive, OneDrive for Business (SharePoint), Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, Egnyte, Copy, Amazon S3, and many others.
Plus: Learn to program in C# with Bob Tabor. New versions of C# fundamentals, just released.
