Google Drive is the Best Online Storage
Comments: I recommend using Google Drive for the people who looking for cloud storage. I did not face any problem when using it. You can afford 15GB free storage when you creating account. There is nothing to be afraid. All the data you upload to the drive is private and highly secured. Data will not lost or change with time. Best place to keep your important files, backups. If you want to transfer a file between two computers and you do not have any pen drive, just upload the file to the Drive and download it from the other computer. I think Google Drive is the best solution for the cloud storage.
Pros: In my experience, I think Google drive is the most popular online data storing service available all around the world. Major reasons for its popularity are the features offered by the Google Drive to its users. Any person who creates a Google E-mail account (Gmail) will automatically receive a 15GB from Google Drive online storage space. This storage is allocated to the user free of charge. 15GB is enough for our daily activities. If we want more space we can buy more storing space from Google and it is cheap. Google drive is a cloud service and we can access our storage from anywhere in the world. Only we need is an internet connection and smartphone or computer. Privacy and security of the stored data is very high. Also we can share files in our drive with others. We can get a link to the file that we need to share and we can send the link. In this case, they can only visit the file I shared and other files in the Google Drive are private.
Cons: I am using Google Dive over a long period of time. But I did not find any issues with that. There were some minor bugs in period that Google Drive was introduced. Google team is fixing every small bug regularly and release updates. Therefore I cannot point out any problem related to that. Some could have problems related to the interface of the Drive. But that is fine because Google Drive has a simple user interface. Other than that, no any issues.

A best cloud drive system for daily use for both personal and works.
Comments: Extremely best cloud drive. For my agency works related and both personal life I am using google drive to handle important work files and my personal photos to store them up. As I am an android user and also have it on my phone to sync up any data from my mobile apps to it as a backup. Been a happy customer for more than 2 years and ongoing. :)
1. Using yearly for more than 2 years at a CHEAP & Reasonable Price.
2. Regional server access with the highest speed data transfer rate.
3. Easily synced the folder between multiple devices instantly.
4. Happy to manage my work files and versioning.
5. Backup From Google Sync their easy to use application.
1. If you have a large amount of files in small chunk as I have 100GB. It becomes slower to resync all data again every time after rebooting the pc.
2. It does high CPU usage for budget category PC during sync. At least it happened to me.

Great product for any business
Comments: I love drive and use it every day to share every kind of document to organizing all of my tasks and holding my team accountable to their key result areas. The options are endless and I feel like I'm always learning something that is even more helpful.
Pros: Google Drive is so easy to use internally and externally working with outsourced businesses/clients. Google Drive is well known and user-friendly to those who don't use it normally.
Cons: There are some restrictions to different versions of drive that make it difficult to share certain things with business partners or internally depending on the G-suite and business formats purchased.

A MUST HAVE for every person who saves a file on their computer that they don't want to lose
I would give this 11 stars out of 10 if I could. If you save files on your computer and are still doing manual backups to a HD or something like that, STOP! Google Drive does all of this CONSTANTLY in the background, without slowing down whatever other things you're doing on your computer at the same time.
NEVER lose a file again! Always have the peace of mind of knowing that if your HD crashes you haven't lost anything. How good is that!?
I have SO much more peace of mind now, not worrying about HD crashes because I have my important files backed up and synched continually using Drive. Invaluable.
So easy to set up and use. Works invisibly in the background. Just start it on Day 1 and forget about it.
So cheap considering the peace of mind you get from it!
Cons: Having said how cheap it is, I wouldn't mind if it were a touch cheaper :) Storage space in the cloud should be getting cheaper, not more expensive, as it becomes more ubiquitous in the internet world today.

Best cloud storage platform hands down!
Comments: I love it, its hard to believe I used external hard drives all the time before I got my google account. Makes it so easy to share pictures and videos with my clients and the email notifications that I uploaded for them makes it easy so I do not have to reach out every single time. Of course I feel confident in the storage solution and makes me not have to worry about hard drives failing knowing that google has me covered. Its truly the best solution in my opinion.
Pros: The easiness of sharing documents and files with others. I love that I can make different folders with different people able to view the content. Everyone has a google account and I feel like it is the most universal and best platform to use for cloud storage. I have never met someone that doesn't have a google account so its easy to share. Team folders are great for collaborations. I like that even if someone deletes something on accident not only is there a paper trail of who did it but you can still recover files within a certain time frame incase something does happen. I love the Google File Stream integration that allows you to pretty much see your google drive as a USB drive that is plugged into your computer.
Cons: I dislike working between the browser and apps the most. I feel like the interfaces are a little different and just have to learn what each can and cant do or how to do it on one or the other. However that is me being really nit picky and I honestly do not see much wrong with this cloud storage site.
