Google Drive helps users store company data in one place. Users can access files from desktop and mobile devices and control how team members share these files. The platform provides a central admin panel, data-loss prevention and a vault for the drive to ensure compliance and file sharing between users.
Google Drive offers team collaboration tools such as Docs, Sheets and Slides. Teams can create new documents and share them with members. They can also engage in real-time document editing and leave comments to update members of changes. It includes machine-learning technology to help users predict future needs. Google Drive provides features like a natural-language search and optical character recognition (OCR).
Google Drive integrates with third-party applications including DocuSign for e-signatures, CloudLock for additional security layers and LucidCharts for mockups. Users can open different file types like PDFs and MPEG4s, and they can work on Microsoft Word files straight from the drive. Pricing is per month. Support is provided via online chat, email and the phone.

Sehr zufrieden und ich empfehle es weiter!
Es ist kostenlos und einfach verständlich. Ist auf vielen Smartphones schon vorinstalliert und am Desktop muss man nichts herunterladen. Zuverlässig und schnell.
Leider ist es nur bis zu einer gewissen Datenmenge kostenlos.

Although nowadays having a cloud to back up all the important files is nothing new, having a stable solution as Google Drive really makes everyday life easier.
We share files, documents, spreadsheets, images withing our organization by just pasting a link. Most important thing is that whoever opens the link, gets the latest version of the document. It was a long time ago when we had to attach documents and send them over e-mail and go through the same hassle every time a document has been changed.
Easy way to share files using one of the several options through:
- The web interface,
- The desktop uploader (windows)
- The android mobile app
And a decent amount of space even in the free account.
No complex setup nor complex configuration
Sorry to say, but I don't think I have some particular cons to share here. I have found myself in different situations using google drive and I haven't had a bad experience at all.

This software has been very helpful throughout the past couple of years, the team drive option is very handy. You don't need to carry a USB drive with you, just log on to your google drive and upload your data in an instant. I would recommend everyone to get this software.
The best thing about using drive is the ability to have your documents available to you everywhere if you have an internet connection. An added feature that lets you make documents of your liking to be available offline is also very powerful. You can also install drive for desktop on your computer (or Drive Filestream if you have a business/educational account). All your files stay synced. You can also sync the photos you take on your phone with you google drive account. You have the ability to upload folders as well, not just individual files. If you're looking to share stuff on your drive, you can allow certain individuals access (other's wont be able to see it), so your privacy is safe. You can also create different team drives for different projects.
The thing that I dislike about google Drive is that when you try to upload a folder that contains thousands of small files, the upload tend to fail to complete 75% of the time. So you have to zip and upload them, I sigh google could fix that. The sync across all devices doesn't happen instantly, it takes about a minute or two to appear everywhere, I find that too slow.

Drive is good for storaging things on your phone or computer. For backuping up information or data its top to none.
So if something happens to your harddrive or External you know your things are safe. It also has a Auto Backup feature that can be used on the phone side of things. I looked and I had pictures from old phones back in 2015 I didnt even know backed up to Drive. I was a happy person looking at that stuff.
So it's good in that aspect. But for group projects. I remember my boss sharing his files with me for beginners training.
But it's functionality on project group side is not as practical as Dropbox or I-Cloud in my experience of it. They may have improved over the years.
I like that you can upload your files to Drive and storage things on it. It saves space on the phone and potentially on the computer. It has a Auto-Backup feature that works perfectly so you don't have to manually store things to it.
It's very disorganized compared to other storage platforms. With dropbox you can create folders and everything is accessible neatly. And while drive does categorize things by dates . It doesnt necessarily allow you to organize everything by project or category. If it does it's not as easy to do as other platforms. Although I havent used the software consistantly in over 3 years.
For example: I'm doing edits for some flyers.
Some edits are finalized so I wanna put them into a finalized folder. Other edits are in-Progress so I wanna put those into a "In-Progress folder" While others might be for another persons project on my team.
They may very well have those features but it wasn't very clear on how to do it. They should have pop-up and tutorials when you first download the software to give people ideas on how to get the most outta their software.
Most times I found myself scrolling through Hundreds and hundreds of videos and photos just to find the one I was looking for.
Also it takes up alot of space on your phone. I remember having google drive and it took over 700MB of space this was about 3 years ago. It was alot to deal with so eventually I took it off my phone. But still used it for recieving shared files on my computer from my boss. I didnt like the functionally of it after using other platforms of equal capacities.

The drive itself is great because I can upload things to it that I need at multiple locations without notice. When I’m Not unavailable, I can share the document very easily.
What I like most about this software is I can share files with people in other countries or locally. I can share small program files, pictures, documents; the list goes on and on.
What I like least about this software is that it can be a little tricky to delete something from it. Sometimes I need to go to three different spots to make sure something is deleted completely. It’s not a big issue for me since I rarely need to delete anything, but when I do, I find it a bit tedious. Overall it’s worth it.
