Google Drive description

Google Drive (foreign version: Google Drive) is a cloud-based storage of user files with collaborative capabilities. Google Drive lets you store most popular file formats. The storage is available on your computer, browser, or mobile devices.

Users can store and upload files from the device or create them themselves using Google tools (documents, spreadsheets, and presentations). The user can access an individual file or a folder. Access is transmitted via a link or email notification, and access settings can also be configured: reader, commenter or editor.

Employees of an organization connected to Google Workspace can communicate and interact with each other seamlessly using the corporation’s Google Drive services integrated into Google Drive. To optimize the search for necessary files in the storage, smart search is available to help employees search for necessary files among the array of company data.

Features of Google Drive:

  • Desktop version - allows you to synchronize data from the user’s computer and view downloaded files. Changes made by users or colleagues are automatically transferred to the device.
  • Shared drives - The user can view third-party files they have accessed on their own drive.
  • Integrated collaboration tools: notes, documents, meetings and more.
  • Data loss protection - automatically scans files for sensitive information and restricts third-party access.
  • Offline access - access and work with files and documents without an internet connection.
  • Integration with familiar tools for work: Slack, tools from Microsoft 365, Jira and others.

Cloud storage


The most convenient storage

I use several storages, but google disk is the most convenient for me. The free space has long ended, I bought paid gigabytes - now there is enough space, I will renew my paid subscription. I like that Google reminds of the next write-off in a month (there is time to revise the files and cancel the subscription if the additional gigabytes are no longer needed).

I don’t know how I used to live without him


Integration with Google documents and other cloud products


I would like more space on the free plan)

Most adequate file storage I’ve seen

I have been using it for 6 years, but I still have a place



I have had a disk for a very long time, more than five years for sure. and although I use it extensively, there is still room and nothing is lost. I also like that you can log in from a laptop, and from a phone, and in both cases it is quick access. and it is convenient to work with different devices, regardless of its size

you can log in from any device


can be accessed from any device



If I forget my phone at home, then I can always go to my google drive (most importantly, remember my username and password) from my work computer, or ask a friend to use his phone (I already take the presence of the Internet for granted, so stop here I will not) to view the information I need on MY disk.

One of the best services I’ve come across




Plugin availability

Built-in office


If we compare the cost of packages with Yandex Drive, then Google Drive is more expensive. But at the same time, the price is average compared to other services

Lack of a large number of tariff packages. For example, there is no tariff for 1 TB, there is for 2 TB for $ 99

Lack of official software with GUI for Linux

One of the most reliable services I’ve come across. So would have used it for years if not for the cost of their packages. For comparison, in Yandex for 34 dollars you can take 1 TB of disk, and Google offers 2 TB for 99 dollars, but you cannot take a package with 1 TB of disk.
