    Drive works wonders as a cloud storage tool for simple to medium complex projects. It allows any digital operation to grow remote and adds remote capabilities to collaborating on digital projects. For a small-medium operation, is an affordable option only bested by a NAS or any other kind of physical on-site storage solution. UI/UX is easy to understand and there's a very short learning curve to it. For bigger or multi-format operations where complex software files are to be used, I'd advise exploring more specific options.

    MEGA

    MEGA is great for storing and syncing files across devices. It has a great web interface, as well as a sync tool for desktop and a mobile app that works very well on iPhone. (I have not used the Android version of the app.) I like the overall usability, as well as some of the features like the QR code and contact list functionality. I like the file versioning and file management features as well.What works less well for me is collaboration with other users, and file sharing among users. I have not been able to find a way to view all files shared with me from other users in the same view as my own files. In fact, when files are shared with me, the only way I have been able to locate them is through Notifications, which is sub-par. I would much prefer to see all shared folders alongside my files, without having to make a copy of the shared folder, thus losing the ability to sync with another user's changes, as well as using up my storage space.

    Pros

    Google Drive

    • Any user with access can store a file using different platforms like Android, IOS, Windows, or Ubuntu (Desktop version)
    • You can share files with any number of different users with different access rights or you can even keep it public by providing the access link and assign different rights for public access
    • You can open Excel/Word files using google software Sheets/Docs in the browser environment without having to install software like Microsoft Office etc on your Windows OS

    Cons

    Google Drive

    • Having a little bit more control and clarity over what is shared and how it is shared would be a useful improvement.
    • Could be more robust and flexible as far as assigning restrictions.
    • Google Sheets could be enhanced because Excel really is not there yet as a product with equal capabilities as there are still quite a few limitations to the functionality.

    • Sometimes the download rate drops by a lot, so the downloads take much longer.

    For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

    It's easy enough to use for computer users of all ages and skill levels. I am an advanced user, and I think the hardest part might be showing someone how to download and set up the app on their device if they weren't too familiar with computers, but overall it is very easy to understand.

    Clean, contemporary UI that is heavily polished and works great. You can tell they did a lot of user testing with this, and have a top notch UI design team that really cares about the customer. A highly user-friendly service across platforms and form factors, I found their web, desktop and mobile apps to all be impeccably designed and consistent.

    The documents load fairly quickly and also update in real time, especially given the fact that multiple people can be using it at once. The "Offline" feature works great to allow the user to make edits and access the document without access to the internet, and then sync changes later once they're back.

    It takes a few days for customer support to get back to you. Although, I have not had to use support too often. Once you get an email back, they are very thorough and work hard to fix the problem quickly. It is a really great resource and a great way to get the help you need if you're stuck. A phone call also works quickly but you have to call during specific times.

    While I have never contacted customer support, there is a large user community that has posted solutions on third party websites to a number of common questions like how to share files, and how to access files that have been shared with you. When I received a 40 GB shared file, I was not able to find how to access it until I searched on Google to find a solution, which was easy to find. The large user community helps with support tremendously.

    The effective google workspace using training that my organization received and was conducted by me (as a team lead of the ICT team) was mind-blowing and as a result, our staff is performing well in terms of using the application for their daily jobs than before. Now, in my institution, all teachers and all the administrative personnel are very much interested in cloud storage facilities, in previous my institution was afraid of losing all important documents in the cloud storage. But, after having received the training they are now realized that if anyone has only one google account then he or she can use 15GB of cloud storage freely and they are now happy because now it is not necessary for anyone to carry the traditional pen drive.

    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

    Google Drive

    Google Drive was the 1st Product that I evaluated of its kind about 15 years ago. I used it then and I still use it. You do not require anything else. It is flexible, easy to use, and accessible. It also gives you a very decent space of 15 GB free of charge. Who needs anything else?

    Mega is a must go to first when expanding cloud storage capabilities and security. Mega can store any file types beyond that of Google Drive and iCloud. Mega is competitively priced to be a suitable option to replace or augment other cloud storage options depending on your business needs. Mega is a must download addition for cloud storage

    Return on Investment

    Google Drive

    • It is best to use if your university has partnered with Google. Unlimited Cloud Storage plus simplicity is evert student's dream!
    • It would be good, though, if Google would partner with other companies to be able to support/run other file types.
    • It is not pricey for all it's worth!

    MEGA

    • You can create backups without needing to occupy the cloud you share with other workers.
    • You can share large files quite quickly. Also, those who receive the link can access the file in just a few minutes.
