Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service created by Google. Google Drive was launched on April 24th 2012 and permits its users to stock files in the cloud, coordinate and synchronize files across devices and distribute files.
In addition to a website, Google Drive displays apps with offline competencies for Windows and macOS computers and Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
Google Drive comprises Google Sheets, Slides and Documents, an office suite that allows cooperative editing of presentations, drawings, documents, spreadsheets, forms and many more. The files which are created and edited through the office suite are saved in Google Drive.
But from now on, the Backup and Sync app can stock all your computer files right on your PC. After it was set back a couple of weeks, Google has initiated its new Backup and Sync app, which is capable of storing your entire computer system on Google Drive. The original launch day was settled for 28th of June but it got delayed for a few weeks for last adjustments.
The Backup and Sync will permeate you to store any documents, photos or videos in the same format as for Google’s cloud for the sake of preventing any unfortunate accidents or crashes. The feature is ready for use for both PCs and Macs and takes the place of the old Google Drive and Google Photo uploaders.
In spite of all these great features and improvements, there is a set back as well. The only problem for Google Drive is that it will only store up to 15 GB of your files for free. In case you need more than that, additional space is available but only if you purchase it.
- Store any file: you can keep stories, photos, designs, recordings, videos, drawings, anything. See your stuff from anywhere. The files can be accessed from any computer, tablet or smartphone. Wherever you go, the files are coming with you.
- Share files and folders: Google Drive allows you to invite others to view, collaborate on all the files you want and download without the need of an email attachment. You can also make the files be ready for use offline when your tablet, phone or even your computer loses services, for example: you’re in a plane or in a building with bad connection to the internet.
