Overall Satisfaction with Google Drive
Google Drive is one of the most user-friendly, feature-rich, and generous cloud storage and synchronization services available, with great productivity suite collaboration capabilities. Customers can backup any folder on their PC, and organizations can save space by not duplicating files on local storage. Storage upgrades are more reasonable with paid plans under the Google One brand than with many alternatives. Google Drive is extremely fantastic in terms of how it can help you store, back up, create, and even modify files, whether you operate alone or in a team.
- Storage size
- Easy Accessibility
- Application Integrations
- 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!
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.

Microsoft OneDrive is Google Drive's main rival. Though there are a few variances, the services are nearly feature-parity. While Microsoft provides more robust productivity programs and greater sharing options for free users, Google provides more initial free storage. At this stage, your decision will be influenced by the environment you use: if you use Windows and Office, OneDrive is intimately integrated with those. If you're firmly invested in Google's ecosystem, Drive makes sense. Apple has also entered the file-syncing and cloud storage game with iCloud Drive, which also allows for collaborative online document editing. However, iCloud Drive is not as robust as Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.
