True Beth, i guess they wouldn't want me to mix up stuff like that. Although they wouldn't know i was mixing and it causes no trouble. Still i think the main reason i had never separated them is because i hadn't thought of online storage in that way as a space that should be separated.

But Kicheko, isn't the question really whether your employer thinks you're mixing personal with corporate?

Now that one is a thin line between personal and corporate personal...i also use dropbox and drive for both work and personal and never thought it was the same as mixing personal and corporate work.

I would say that any person interacting extensively with computers and IT needs a little paranoia. if one has no qualms about storing their personal work on company computers then they are not going to be easy to help. When using work laptops, i rarely even access non-work-related sites...if i do i use my own modem and private browsing. Well maybe my paranoia is extra. If i lost a company device i would strictly be worrying about company work.

About a year ago,Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) released results of a survey on IT consumerization. One big finding: while more than 75% of the companies surveyed have a policy against or discourage employees from using personal accounts on services like dropbox for business purposes, a whopping 70% of the IT pros surveyed either know (36%) or believe (34%) employees are using non-IT-approved solutions.

Where, oh where, is the corporate data? Can't it stay in a centralized place anymore?

Companies are doing a lot to formulate BYOD programs -- but that's not quite the same as using a corporate device for nonwork purposes. But this is serious stuff for companies, from a data loss perspective more so, IMO, than a storage perspective.

@Noreen - I think it becomes a legal quagmire and a litigator's dream.

And that raises a good point. If you use your personal laptop at home to check your company email, have you now opened that machine to discovery in the event of litigation over something in those company emails?
