For fans of the cloud storage service Dropbox, Google has something for you: Google Drive, Google’s long-awaited cloud storage service.
It is exactly what fans of Dropbox might expect, a service identical to the web-based file hosting service. Google Drive does exactly what Dropbox does: it users networked storage to enable users to store and share files and folders in the cloud, across the internet. Wherever you are in the world, so as long you have an internet connection, you have your files.
Fans of Google have lots to rave about this service. Not only because Google is known for many amazing services such as Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Mail, but because anyone who signs up with Google Drive gets 5GB free. That’s 3GB more than what Dropbox offers.
It works the same way as Dropbox does. You download the program and drag your files into the Google Drive folder and once the files are synced, your files are in the cloud. If you want more, you can always buy more space. For an additional $2.50 per month, you get 25GB more. For those who want a terrabyte of files stored in the cloud, you can choose to buy it for $50.
Google Drive is integrated with Google Docs. You can download it now on Google Drive’s official website.
