Google Drive is perfect for team projects and as a cloud if you want to access your files from any computer or device. You do have to make sure to sign in to your account to access if the device you're on doesn't have the app downloaded to it. I wouldn't suggest using Google Drive if you're not on one of your main devices (i.e. on a public computer).

Pros

Cons

Google Drive

  • I used to have trouble with pasting from other sources and the format getting messed up until I learned Ctrl + Shift + V to paste without formatting. This has made a big difference knowing this.
  • Google Drive desktop app seems to lose connectivity or even close itself frequently without notifying me. I find myself often closing and reopening it to continue sync.
  • Sometimes files fail to sync but do not provide a reason why. Sometimes they seem to never sync but other times sync when trying again so the reason remain unknown.

It's the cheapest, most effective platform we've found to store files in the cloud.

I've been using Google Drive for years. I've used OneDrive, iCloud, Dropbox etc., and Google Drive is the one I just keep coming back to. It is the easiest platform to use that I have tried. Another aspect that holds Google Drive above the competition is the generous amount of storage before you need to pay, and the cost basis isn't bad either.

Its surprising features always amaze me and make me use Google Drive. There is one [benefit] that is more of a neat feature than a benefit, but it’s still worth mentioning. Google Drive’s image recognition technology can easily recognize the content of my pictures. For instance, if I have visited a famous landmark on a recent vacation and upload my photo in front of it, the picture comes up when one searches for that landmark using Google Drive’s search.

As one of the premier cloud-based platforms in existence, Drive is consistently being updated and improved for better performance and reliability. Furthermore, the ability to leverage Google's immense web-based strength only enables more support going forward. As more and more businesses begin to adopt cloud technology, the benefits will continue to be felt across the platform.

It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

Alternatives Considered

Google Drive

Google Drive takes advantage because it integrates so well between other Google apps, so we can search for files easily. Also, we can connect Google Drive to other applications (developed by our company) which enables us to save form submissions, and other kinds of data, directly into Drive spreadsheets and documents.

Return on Investment

Google Drive

  • It saves us time in the creation of documents when multiple people are involved.
  • It removes the need to have multiple revisions of the same file.
  • It removes the need to consolidate comments/edits from multiple people in multiple files.
