Google Drive is very useful especially when you are using the entire Google workspace. If you are using Google Docs, Slides, and Gmail, then Google Drive integrates well with those apps. For those working primarily in a Microsoft environment using Microsoft Office and Outlook, using One Drive for file storage may make more sense.

The best part of Google Drive is that it provides 15 GB of space, free of charge. Moreover, since Google Drive works seamlessly with every other device smartphone, switching from one device to another is very easy and convenient which is a big plus point. Moreover, Google Drive's security and reliability is top notch which makes it one of the best along with its reasonable pricing.

I have used both Dropbox and Google Drive. In my experience, Google Drive is much more flexible and the seamless integration with our other Google products and even non-Google products makes our processes much easier to set up and much more efficient at the end of the day. It also feels that Google is more intuitive than Dropbox

I prefer Google Drive to OneDrive for a lot of reasons, but mostly because it is more intuitive and user friendly. OneDrive does the same things, in theory, but is cumbersome to use and not easy to search - I often feel like I "lose" files in OneDrive because I of how they are automatically saved in various folders. I would 100% chose Google Drive and use it much more frequently.

Google Drive allows you to actually create documents within the program, whereas OneDrive requires a bit more restructuring on the back end to be able to do the same through word doc, excel, etc. It's been easy to access edits in real-time on both applications, but OneDrive is just a bit more difficult to set up for a larger amount of people to access.

Google Drive provides the following features that at least one of the others lack:
  • Wide storage plans.
  • Fast file transfer.
  • Trusted encryption.
  • File type compatibility.

Others mentioned had presented issues in the past that go from packet loss to limited file time uploaded, to even unsecure data transit. Google Drive has been from the beginning, the most useful, user friendly and secure way to go on its area.

Amazon drive and apple cloud are services that are core customer-focused, i.e. Some photographers who want to consolidate their creative work, similarly, Adobe creative cloud is also limited to adobe professionals. Because of its simple and instinctive user interface, it has more acceptance over others. Lastly, Without paid subscription drive allow more free space for usage.

I was offended to use different storage devices than my friend has recommended me to use google drive and then I have started using it and have stopped worrying now I can have all my data secured and could easily share my data to others and this is most easy to use.

Google Drive's major competitor is Microsoft OneDrive. Though there are a few differences, the services are essentially identical in terms of functionality. While Microsoft's free users have access to more powerful productivity apps and sharing opportunities, Google offers more initial free storage. As a result, Google is the most cost-effective option.

Box and Dropbox, two other significant names in the online file syncing service industry, also provide their document kinds for collaboration: Box with Note and Dropbox with Paper. Both integrate the Google and Microsoft editors into their services, allowing you to create a new Microsoft Word doc from a menu choice, for example. Box, in particular, excels at workflow tools, while Dropbox provides a plethora of third-party integrations via its App Center. However, neither can compete with the integration and breadth of productivity tools provided by Google and Microsoft's cloud services.

Google Drive is easier to use than OneDrive. It has better UI, it is much more intuitive and it's easier to learn to use. It also have data security policies that are comparable to OneDrive. On the other hand it doesn't have such a good integration with Microsoft Windows.

I had similar problems with Dropbox, that's why I switched to Google Drive. But when I think about my recent experience, I see that the Dropbox experience was not so bad. They were at least able to revert the changes and their app, although has problems, was not as ridiculous as Google Drive app is in my opinion. At least if I unchecked the "download" tick-box on Dropbox app, it stops downloading.

Unlike OneDrive, Google Drive provides a great user experience with its easy-to-use file sharing and storage feature. Creating folders, adding files, and sharing files are very seamless compared to its competitor. The service facilitates accessing our files and documents anywhere and everywhere with the option to edit them. It has served as a reliable backup for all files and databases sorted. The integration with the Google Suite - docs, sheets, etc is tremendous.

We use Madcap for most writing, and Google Drive when we can. Madcap allows you to write and store a library of documents in its platform. It has a multitude of technical writing features: snippets, user guide building, variables. It's just impossible to collaborate with it. It has a terrible document review system.

I would love it if Google Drive just developed some technical writing capabilities, and we were able to build user guides and articles within Google Drive.

For the free version, the storage capacity being offered is by far the greatest as compared to any other collaboration software. However, if your company has the capacity to pay for the software then there are more features being offered by the paid versions of other software like Bitrix24 online documents or Zoho Workdrive/Docs; features like storage capacity, admin console, templates, migration, etc

We only started out with Google Drive, because we all use Gmail. It is more than sufficient for everything that we need to use it for. I don't know much about other options that exist for the capabilities that exist for Google Drive, but I really enjoy Google Drive and will continue to use it.

They can all do the basics equally well, storing and sharing documents. Google Drive is the best from an ease of use perspective. SharePoint is a little better in terms of user management. Dropbox has the best name recognition, but not all the features you will need. If you are a Microsoft shop, then SharePoint is slightly better integrated, I think Drive wins in every other category.

Both OneDrive and Google Drive give a similar cloud administration identified with capacity and record sharing. The two organizations' answers let you access your documents and envelopes from any place. Thus, our distributed storage examination depends on a few variables which summarize to decide the end-client experience. Those variables include: Pricing plans File sharing Productivity apps Online privacy Data security But my selection is on pricing plans only because all other factors are covered nearly same by the two giants as well. Microsoft OneDrive plans include three options: 1. 100 GB storage for $1.99 per user per month. 2. 1 TB storage for $6.99 per user per month. 3. 6 TB total (1 TB per user for 6 users) for $9.99 per month
