Editors' Review

Google Drive is a convenient solution for backing up your important files, as well as facilitating sharing and collaboration between multiple users. You can create new documents directly through this program, or you can save existing documents to it, and then access them from anywhere.

Pros

Secure backup: Google Drive is a secure place to back up any important files you want to protect against loss. And because the free storage is so generous, you don't even have to be selective about what you add.

Collaboration and sharing: In addition to backing up existing files, you can also use this app to share files with others, and to collaborate on the creation of new files with friends or colleagues. The flexibility and versatility built into this app greatly increase its usefulness.

Cons

Complicated processes: Certain features are a little difficult to access. For instance, it's possible to make an image or scanned document that you save to Google Drive searchable, but you have to take some extra steps and convert the image to a Google Document in order for that feature to work.

Bottom Line

Google Drive is a great option for both cloud storage and work sharing. While some features take a little poking around to find or a little experimentation to get used to, they all work well, once you get the hang of them. The app is also free to install and use, making it worth checking out.
