Unclouded Finds Out What’s Eating Your Google Drive and Dropbox Space

Lifehacker (http://lifehacker.com/unclouded-sorts-google-drive-and-dropbox-by-size-categ-1613491689) just did a great write-up about Unclouded, a great new app which helps clear out/minimize wasted space on Google Drive and Dropbox.

It’s currently not available for the iPhone but Android users shouldn’t definitely give it a try.

We gave it a quick try and it worked quite well.  Unfortunately you do have to pay to take action on anything that the app finds, but for $2 it could be well worth it if you have a lot of duplicate data.

Of course, you could also run a free disk analyzer on your computer and use it to remove duplicate data, but for those of you who prefer to do this on your phone/tablet, Unclouded could be a good solution.

Here’s more information:

Android: What’s taking up all the space in your Dropbox? Are there multiple copies of the same file in your Google Drive? Get control of your cloud storage with Unclouded for Android.

Unclouded has an easy and appealing interface. You can sign in with multiple Dropbox or Google Drive accounts, but operate only one at a time, there’s no cross-platform magic here. Unclouded is then like a disk space analyzer, but for the cloud. It will analyze your cloud storage to come up with the size of the whole folder, the kind of documents you have (images, audio, video, etc.) and how much space each takes, and sort files by when you last modified them. It also recognizes duplicates and lists them separately.

All of this is available in the free version of Unclouded. To take action on any this data, you’ll have to pay $1.99 for the premium version. That lets you delete, upload, share, rename and move files, as well as create new folders.

The app is still in beta, so you’ll have to join its Google+ community to gain access to download it from the Play Store. Alternately, you can directly download the APK.
