    Do you recognize Cloud Drive?

    This afternoon I was looking at my OneDrive and noticed in the tree, that there was something called "Cloud Drive" right above OneDrive. I opened the folder and noticed that some photos were on there and ones that I really would hate to lose. Funny thing is though it says it was created yesterday (4/1) and the only software I played with yesterday was the Nokia Beamer on my Phone. Would one of you please look at the icon in the picture below and see if you recognize it?

    Googling cloud drive gives a lot of links to Amazon's cloud drive, but the logo doesn't seem to match. There are other references as well, but none seem to be as specific as Amazon's

    Yea, Mine look the same as yours George. Guess I'll just keep an eye on it for now and make a separate back up of those photos.

    I just looked and there isn't a name associated with the theme, but Its to Bing one that changes
    I also looked at the folder a little closer, and instead of 4/1/14, it shows 4/1/13? hmmmm gonna have to try and remember a year ago....

    Hi, John.
    I think you will find it is Amazon Cloud Drive - presumably you have an Amazon account - yesterday they were giving 10Gb free on their Cloud Drive. To check, go into your Amazon account and look for "Cloud Drive".

    P.S. Though you can upload and store many kinds of documents to Cloud Drive, you can only see Photos in the Cloud Drive app for the iPad.

    Thanks Pablo,
    I got the email from Amazon on Wednesday and really didn't think much of it. Now that you have replied, I will revisit.
    Thanks John
