Unclutter your cache in the cloud

My year-old laptop includes an old-school hard drive, but I’m not sure why. I keep nearly all my important files at several cloud storage services: Dropbox, Microsoft SkyDrive, or Google Drive. But there’s one major problem: finding the stuff. When hunting up an important document or a favorite music recording, it’s easy to forget where it’s stored.

Clearly, lots of people have this problem, because I’ve found a bunch of online services that help manage your other online services. These services — Otixo, Primadesk, ZeroPC , and CloudMagic — connect to dozens of major cloud-based products and let you oversee them from a single interface. They are valuable tools for anybody who uses multiple online services to stash their stuff.
