Google Drive is a really easy tool to use thanks to the Google ecosystem. Synchronization is very fast and effective. The basic version provides you with 15 GB, being the provider of this type of solution that gives you more storage in the free version. Their payment plans are very adaptable. Today it is one of the most used cloud-based tools.
  • Synchronization
  • speed
  • plans
  • Could improve speed
I usually recommend Google Drive for cloud storage to always have a backup copy of your files and above all so that your work is always available anywhere. Although there are two other tools that from my point of view are currently rivaling Google Drive, I usually recommend their use, if it is true that there is a similar tool but it is faster.

Excellent tool (product) we use for Chat, Mail, Drive, etc. several years of implementation to get data accurate with a single log in and share any document with our co workers and customers. Helped us to have a great tool to share data, info and surveys between our subsidiaries in DR and US. Easy and secure.. We use the product to Share Documents, videos, training materials and conduct surveys and data collection within the company.
  • Sharing documents, video, files, etc.
  • Create froms to performs some surveys.
  • Access to a whole world class of product and services.
  • Data collection.
  • Graphical Interface, they should change a little bit.
  • Copying forms between differents drives to an easiest deployment.
Incredible secure and reliable, we can share large documents, videos or any other kind that we are not allowed to do via email. Easy access no matter where youare from, you can be in Europe, America or Asia, and with a simple click you enter and solve everything. I can not really find something that does not help, in everyday life it solves wery well.

Google Drive is the cloud storage solution that I am most familiar with and most impressed with. I have used Google Drive at several organizations and use it exclusively for my home inspection business. We back up every inspection, including over 500 photos, for every inspection. We had never had an issue when we tried to access the data stored on Google Drive.
  • Access is very Dependable.
  • Folder options are clear and straightforward.
  • Google Drive App works well with my iPhone.
  • Can not copy and paste Folders containing subfolders.
  • Load times can be extensive.
In my experience, Google Drive is one of the most intuitive and inexpensive cloud storage options available today. The pricing is more than fair, considering the amount of storage that is offered in the different packages. The mobile app works well with my iPhone, and I am comfortable that my data is safe and secure, with the storage solution being a Google product. The only problem I have encountered, and perhaps I am doing something wrong, but I can not copy and paste folders that contain subfolders.

It is considered one of the most important cloud storage outlets over the Internet, as it allows you to store 15 GB for free, which is good in that, and it is also possible to buy a larger version, fast, light, and smooth in dealing, and also good at linking files in all formats for downloading to others. I also liked it because I link important files to it through email and mobile. It is good and irreplaceable.
  • Link my important files to it by sending a copy of important mail and files to it.
  • Connect to a mobile phone and store any important photos or files.
  • Reduce the price to buy more space.
  • I hope to add an internal file that we can work with with a password.
For my part, I use it and I recommend it to everyone, and as an experiment, the free 15 GB space is enough to try and take advantage of it, and it is really great.

We use Google Drive as part of the GSuite line of products. We use Google Drive to provide 'at rest' encryption of data and to facilitate an easy way for staff to share and collaborate on files. The product is easy to use and provides flexibility for our employees and students so they can work from anywhere.
  • Easy to use
  • Great for collaboration
  • Encrypted storage
  • Accessible anywhere
  • Improve ways to find documents shared with me
  • Sometimes the search feature hangs or does not locate documents
  • The ability to view the tree structure within folders
Google Drive is best suited for environments where cloud storage of documents is needed. It is also great for collaboration - the ability for teams to share and edit documents is outstanding. Users can create folder structures in any way that works best for them. You can search on anything and you can see a list of documents that were shared with you. The ability to set the share options - editor, viewer - is also very helpful.

Google Drive is one of the tools we use to share files and projects easily. I use it for a project storage drive for quick access to the files. I like the security of it, the ease of use, and the options that come with it. My staff finds access to it from the top toolbar, we have macs, which makes it fast access. For my clients that we do retouching for it is an easy way to securely deliver and retrieve their images.
  • File sharing both on local computers and from clients.
  • Such easy access from the top tool bar on our Mac.
  • I like the security of it.
  • Google Drive fits nicely into our Google suite of services.
  • So far we have not found an issue we would like fixed or an idea to be implemented.
For us, it is an effective file-sharing tool and an inexpensive storage space. I am a photographer so security and ease of use in my work flow is critical, Google Drive delivers on that need. Being able to share files from clients in distant cities helps drive my bottom line. When I travel, this is the preferred upload site. I can be working on location, upload images for office staff to work with and pass on. It is a seamless process for us.

Google Drive is our main cloud storage tool at Lumen Studio. It addresses the availability of footage, resources and digital assets for creative projects. Enhances the organization remote capabilities and makes the collaboration with international clients/freelancers possible. The scope of our use is it works as a secondary storage besides our main physical one and we currently use the 2+TB service.
  • 24 hour availability
  • layout of information easy to navigate
  • multiple collaborators
  • UI friendly, simple and clean
  • different plans of storage according to company/personal needs
  • organizing collaborators can be cumbersome
  • permissions and privacy managing
  • limited file formats to check files in the cloud/explorer directly
  • issues with multiple downloads
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.

We collect meeting notes, write new blog entries, communicate information with clients, and more using Google Drive. Most of our customers also favor Drive over other file storage solutions. There are several causes for this, but Google Drive is just quick, easy, and safe. Here are a few additional justifications for why you should use Drive if you don't already: Utilize a computer, tablet, or smartphone to access data. There are no lost copies or forgotten saves to be concerned about because everything automatically saves in the cloud. Google offers 15GB of storage at no cost, with additional space available on a monthly basis. Who sees or edits your documents is under your control. We are collaborating with others in real-time. Apps for Google Drive - Use apps to edit Drive and add signatures, charts, and forms.
  • Storage.
  • Quick Access.
  • Access Anywhere.
  • Easier User Interface.
  • File Size Limits.
  • Downloading and Uploading Speed.
Suppose you require quick access to files across multiple systems. Real-time collaboration on Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets. You don’t have to send ten different versions of the same file back and forth. One person can write a document in Los Angeles, and someone in Tokyo can be on at the same time and see their edits as they make them.

Store and access the data from anywhere and everywhere as the integration between mobile and laptop is the best, also ability to edit files through google drive is the added advantage over others. Also, the search feature makes it very user-friendly along with the software available on different operating systems like android and ios in the case of mobile.
  • Many keyboard shortcuts are there which let you navigate the website quickly
  • File sharing feature is quite amazing which allows to add comments, suggestions, etc
  • Its feature of converting Microsoft files like excel, power point directly into google drive files is very useful
  • 15 Gb free storage is large enough to store important files and data
  • The best thing about google drive is it's integration over different devices
  • Limit of uploading file size is sometimes create issues where more data needs to be shared
  • Downloading and uploading speed sometimes irritating
  • .Potential security risk due to no extra layer of protection
Well suited based on my below experiences 1. Excellent user interface 2. Affordable and user-friendly 3. recognize character very fast 4. it is compatible with Microsoft 5. Free storage up to 15GB 6. Easy sharing and open discussion possible Below are the scenario where it is less appropriate: 1. Downloading and uploading speed becomes very irritating sometimes 2. Daily file upload size limit

We use Google Drive for short-term sharing of files that are too large to send via email or WhatsApp. We also use the platform for storing business files to be accessed by multiple remote users. We even use Google Drive to provide uploading functionality to clients and other 3rd parties from whom we require files that are too large to send via email or WhatsApp.
  • File viewing, whether PDF, sound or video files
  • Access control from view-only to edit rights
  • Synchronisation with local folders
  • More flexibility of choosing an account on which storage space is used.
  • Access control could be more intuitive especially when adding new files to an already shared folder.
  • Synchronising local folders was tricky to first set up
For personal and business use, Google Drive is super flexible and accessible. Even if you upgrade to a paid tier, the cost is very reasonable. Perfect for sharing files, storing files in the cloud for backup purposes and collaboration between different users, even if the users are geographically far apart.

I usually use Google Drive to share files with my colleagues, it's pretty easy and helpful, the file system can be divided into sections just like the one used on your personal Operative System. The application for windows simplifies furthermore all the processes giving the possibility to perform all the operations from the OS's file system.
  • Near real time synchronization.
  • Share files and drives with other people.
  • Integration with Windows 10.
  • Limit of file size you can upload in a day.
  • Security Risks.
  • File Size Limits.
Google Drive is very suitable in cases where you need to share files, documents, and information with many people, for example with your team. On the other hand, you should avoid sharing sensitive data (passwords, customer information, etc..). The shared drives are managed by Google and of course, are available on the web. If an attacker could get in, your data would be compromised.

We are using Google on a daily basis day to day life for creating and managing spreadsheets for creating PRD and SRS documents and many more. This is primarily used and we can share all the documents with any mode to another user like read, write, or comment so that according to this we can take the action on it.
  • Sharing of any document with privilege
  • Inline comment section
  • Spreadsheet with multiple sheet
  • We can set the priority on document
  • As according to my use case it is fulfilling all my requirement so i don't have as such requirement which is not implemented here.
There are so many features which are extensively used here so I would recommend to everyone to use this. Here we can also work as a team on a particular document which is an awesome feature because everyone is working remotely so everyone can see what others are doing on a particular document. We can store every type of file here and share the public link if we want.

Google Drive is the platform for daily use. We use it to manage all our documents, images, and formats in the cloud. Essentially it is the platform to work online from the agency with clients. It allows us to save time with collaborative work in real time, in web writing, reports, and proposals to clients using various formats.
  • Collaborative work
  • Seo online writing
  • Collaborative reports
  • Follow-up of copies and ads arts.
  • Delete recent documents
  • Improve the desktop
  • More options for folder design and configuration
  • User interface
It is appropriate for use in digital marketing agencies inside social media marketing, copywriting, collaborative work, and graphic and web design.

I have been using google drive on my laptop and phone. It provides easy access to the files and we can share the files with just one click. Google Drive provides free storage of 15 GB where we can store the files. It can be accessed in Gmail and the Google Drive apps in android phones.
  • Free storage of 15 GB
  • Easily accessibility via gmail and Google Drive app in android mobiles
  • Very user friendly interface
  • Files can be shared very easily
  • Free storage can be provided more in today's market competition
  • Even if I use some best possible search words, sometimes its quite difficult to find the files
  • User interface can be made more attractive
I have been using Google Drive for the past 6-7 years and the best thing about it is how effortlessly we can share the folders and files and can store them too. It gives us the option to buy more storage but I haven't faced any issue with 15 GB storage. Despite so many advantages of Google Drive, there is only one problem that I have faced while using Google Drive which is while searching for the files in it. Even if I put the best search words, sometimes the file doesn't show up.

Google Drive is an online briefcase where we store all the important files and folders. It is very easy to use. Is embedded in Gmail and is seperately accessible via our Android phones as well via a Gdrive App. It comes with a free space of abot 15 GB. For more space of course you can buy it however 15GB is a resonably good space for routine operational activities. Al our Google forms are by default saved in G drive and also the response to those forms via excel export. I think it is a great application.
  • Great Free Space of about 15GB
  • Easy user interface
  • Easily Accessible in form of a G Drive Mobile App in Android phones and in Gmail
  • Excellent for Google Forms as output and the forms are stored in G drive by default.
  • Negligible downtime. Always up and running.
  • More free space can be provided in view of market competition.
  • GDrive can come in more attractive user interface.
  • Gdrive needs to be marketed more aggressively for user awareness.
Google Drive for us has suited well, especially for storage solutions. It is a great source of safely storing your important files and folders online. Of course, there is a hesitation to save business-critical files in Google Drive due to fears of security or hacking. However, overall I would say Google Drive has remained relevant for a long period of time now. It reinvents itself from time to time.

I use Google Drive between my laptop, desktop, and phone. Whether, I am working in the office, remotely, or on the go, I have access to my files and I keep work moving forward. I use Google Drive for the desktop to keep my files synced. I can start a project on one device, and pick it up and edit the project as needed when working at a different location. I work with graphic design project files and video files, which take up a lot of space and I cant save all my files on my desktop, so it's great to be able to save everything to Google Drive.
  • The new Drive for desktop application, which recently replaced Google Backup and Sync, works better than Google Backup and sync.
  • I can easily search for files in Google Drive.
  • I can preview certain types of files right within Google drive without having to open a different application or download the file.
  • The drag and drop user interface makes file organization very easy.
  • You can upload multiple files and folders to google drive all at once and see the upload progress/status for each individual upload in the que.
  • While I do like the new Drive for desktop sync app over the previous Google backup and sync program, it still is very limited in the choices you have for syncing your files. You either have to stream all files or mirror or files and neither of these options is the best fit for me. I liked that with Google Backup and sync. you could select which folders to sync, so I would like it if some of that flexibility was brought back into Drive for Desktop.
  • Google Drive keeps changing the app and method for locally syncing files. In the pasy four years, I hae had to learn three syncing apps for this at work.
  • Previously when browsing google drive, I could select to open a file or a folder location in a new tab. In recent years that functionality has been removed and I miss it. It is still available in other Google apps like Gmail, but for some reason, it's no longer available in Google Drive.
I like being able to preview files within Google drive, without having to download a separate application. However, you can't edit files within google drive. You can edit only files that are created with other Google applications, like google docs. If you need to share files on google drive with another user that does not have a Gmail address that could be a problem. Sometimes, people are required to have a Gmail account in order to view or edit shared files.

Our company uses Google Drive to share files, that are too large to be shared via email, with the team. Moreover, Google Drive has been a very useful tool to save important files and data and can be accessed conveniently by anyone who has been authorized. Furthermore using Google Drive helps save the use of paper which can help save the environment.
  • Share files easily and conveniently
  • Ability to share files instantly
  • Updated in real-time
  • Very easy for beginners
  • Cannot be accessed offline
  • Could be more user-friendly
  • Should support more file types like TIFF, PSD etc.
Google Drive is a cloud based storage solution that helps in keeping and storing important data in one place and allows the user to access them anywhere in the world with ease on their laptop, desktop, tablet or a smartphone. While Google Drive has made it very easy to upload, share and access data easily, Google Drive does not have an extra layer of protection if someone else from the team gets a link to your files and could access them easily. Another big drawback of Google Drive is the need of internet. You must be connected to internet to access the files or share them.

I use google drive to save my work documents for the ease of access to view, edit or download the documents anytime, anywhere. It has been really helpful in saving personal and professional documents especially in the times that no one needs a hard copy and view of the soft copy works everywhere.
  • Saves any format of file
  • Pulls up list of recent documents
  • Lets you share document with other users
  • When a document is downloaded, the formatting isn't the same
  • Downloading ppts takes away the animations on every slide
As already mentioned I love the ease of access to view, edit or download your documents anytime. The functionality that I want to gear up is formatting issues when a file is downloaded, it doesn't stay intact as when the file was uploaded this is particularly for MS PowerPoint presentations where I end up loosing the formatting as well as animations on the slides.

  • It's easy to use and integrates well with other applications.
  • Storage can be adjusted based on business size.
  • Quality of usage depends on the internet speed.
  • A gmail account is needed.
  • Free version has limited space.
Google drive is great when a user has to upload and download several files with different users. It is great for using along with other google based products. Google drive may not be great if the internet speed is too slow.

Google Drive was used to manage projects with freelancers who may not have access to internal communication at the time. It also allowed different international teams to easily share documents with other global teams and with clients in a secure manner. It is global footprint made it easy to adopt across teams, rather than get a paid management tool.
  • Allow collaboration across teams, clients and freelancers.
  • Easy to use across different systems (Mac versus PC).
  • Easy to use
  • Some functionalities on excel are still not present in the web version and it is really problematic. It is hard to use and at times we are forced to download the file, work offline and then upload again.
  • Better way to organize files
It is well suited if you need to work with freelancers and you can't invest in a paid tool management.

Google Drive allows us to collaborate with ease and maintain our shared documents/files as we continue to work remotely, providing a valuable and quick alternative to logging on via VPN to access the network-based file sharing folder we had previously been using. Really helps speed things up by having a near-flawless app, too!
  • Quick, universal access on web and via app
  • Automatically saves
  • Allows for easy collaboration
  • Ease of access
  • Would like to be able to personalize app - ie. set preference of file/folder appearance to be last-accessed, instead of alphabetical
  • Some colleagues struggle with linking as attachment instead of drive link
  • Some colleagues struggle to get answers to FAQs
Google Drive is fantastic for the remote or hybrid workplace, where you do not always have quick and easy access to the network. Having to log in via VPN and dual-factor authentication is burdensome, especially when you just need a quick file so Google Drive helps us keep frequently used files readily accessible.

Google Drive has allowed both myself and other colleagues of mine the ability to access documents conveniently and efficiently regardless of where we are working from. It also gives us the opportunity to work on projects as a collaboration and see each other's notes and edits in real time, which helps everyone in terms of project deadlines.
  • Collaborative workspace
  • Real-time revisions
  • Easily accessible regardless of location
  • Some of the features in the Google Slides can provide more creativity
  • Connection issues tend to happen from time to time
  • There are no other features I believe would need to be added to suit our organization's needs
During a time where many employees have switched their workspace to working from home, being able to access documents without using a vpn or encountering a document that's being edited by someone else, google drive has become a necessity. Our projects require a lot of collaboration and constant proofing, so being able to work alongside each other and see the revisions and edits as they happen has resolved many issues for us.

We use Google Drive to save the business documents. It helps us to share the documents securely with authorized users only. Also, we can preview a few files such as pdf and images within Google Drive only. It also helps keep the versions of different files whenever we upload the same file.
  • Organization of files and folders
  • Version management
  • File sharing
  • Support different file formats for preview.
  • File uploading on mobile devices needs to be improved.
  • Can add "Shared By Me" option same as "Shared with me" option.
It's very user-friendly, users can quickly learn to share, and save their documents. Also one can manage their documents as they manage them on their hard drives. Add or remove the shared users easily, also uploading and deletion of files are easy. It has a trash facility where it can store the deleted items like recycle bin on the computer.

It is the main cloud storage location for the company. It solves communication problems, it's used as an information wall and also retains sensitive data managed by admin users for several accounts. The scope of use is wide; mechanics use it for installation guides storage, office use it for sensitive data retention, sells use it for customer personal information.
  • Sharing large files.
  • Organization and discretization of files.
  • Access control based on permission roles.
  • Easy visualization of content on multiple devices.
  • Fast content updates.
  • The app could implement a hierarchy based structure.
  • Quick notifications for permissions request could make everything easier.
  • Faster is always better. Rapid file transfers would be great.
Google Drive is great for storing personal data and sharing public information. It might suit a scenario where an individual needs to store in an organized way his/her identification credentials. Anyhow, if limited space is a problem, maybe an individual would prefer storing tons of large video files on a fast storage physical unit rather than google drive.

Keeping the docs on cloud storage is best and practical scenarios of now a day. if in case of low bandwidth of internet then drive should allow with resize the data and upload or download it.
