Google Drive is your virtual drive in the cloud. Whether you are at home, the office or on the go, you can access your files from anywhere, either remotely via a web browser or locally, on your computer. Make a change to a file stored on your PC and it will be automatically synchronised with the same file in your cloud-based Google Drive.
If you lose files or need to recover data on a new computer, simply install Google Drive and your files will be synchronised back to the new PC. Google Drive is available for your PC, Mac and Android devices. And iOS app will follow soon.
Google Drive lets you do more than just store your files. Share files with exactly who you want and edit them together, from any device. In Google Drive, you can create new documents, spreadsheets and presentations instantly. Work together at the same time on the same doc and see changes as they appear.
Sharing files through Google Drive is easy. Although your standard files are safe and secure, you can choose to share files with other users, such as your latest presentation or other documentation. They log in to their Google Drive and can view shared files made available to their account. Ideal for teams in remote locations.
Google Drive gives you up to 15GB of virtual cloud-based space immediately. If you require more space to store or synchronise files, 100GB is available for only $4.99/month. Up to 16TB of space is available, although that will set you back an eye-watering $799/month.
Note that the version here is for Windows.
