    I would like to have Dropbox, OneDrive, Google storage and a few others.
    I ONLY want to sync files when I choose to - ONLY when I choose!
    Otherwise, I don't want ANY hogging of my system resources in anyway.
    And erm... I just want to use the free limits that they all give. :)

    How can I do this?
    If I install Google Drive... can I stop it from hogging my system?

    Another idea... could I have multiple accounts and just switch between different accounts?
    So syncing only happens when I switch?

    Just thinking out loud. Would like to know if it's a good idea that is possible. :)

    You should be able to disable automatic syncing on each account. Then there should be a sync button for when you want to sync. Since you are the one who have all these accounts, you will have to look at each one.
