  • Capacity
  • Easy to use
  • It has allowed our team to work faster
  • It has also allowed our team to share more easily
Google Drive seems to integrate with Windows more comprehensively than Dropbox. Both are pretty easy to use and seem to be reliable. Our team has not had any security issues with Google Drive.

Google Drive is well suited for sharing large files between team members working on a project together. It’s also very reliable and I have not experienced problems accessing my files.

Evaluating Google Drive and Competitors

Yes - We migrated all of our files from Dropbox to Google Drive because it was believed to be more user friendly and secure. It has met our expectations.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Security is the most important issue and reliability, so that we can always have access to our files, is second.
I am happy with Google Drive and would have still been happy to switch.

Using Google Drive

It allows drag and drop as well as searching within Windows Files Manager. The file manager browser is the same as Windows.
