Google Drive Software


 

Google Drive helps users store company data in one place. Users can access files from desktop and mobile devices and control how team members share these files. The platform provides a central admin panel, data-loss prevention and a vault for the drive to ensure compliance and file sharing between users.

Google Drive stores teams’ work in a shared workspace. Teams own new files added to the drive, so that all members stay updated with the latest files. It includes machine-learning technology to help users predict future needs. Google Drive provides features like a natural-language search and optical character recognition (OCR).

Google Drive integrates with third-party applications including DocuSign for e-signatures, CloudLock for additional security layers and LucidCharts for mockups. Users can open different file types like PDFs and MPEG4s, and they can work on Microsoft Word files straight from the drive. Pricing is per month. Support is provided via online chat, email and the phone.

A massively important part of GSuite

Pros

Extremely easy to use,
You have massive control over the documents and the way you share.
Great integration with other GSuite services, and good third party community to develop apps.

Cons

File stream sync is not great, very slow especially in the beginning, and it sucks if the company disabled it.

Strongly recommended for small to medium organizations or institutions. The free version has a limitation, but go for a premium option if you want sufficient storage of files

Pros

File sharing can be done in multiple formats such as word, excel, and image forms respectively. Multiple members can work, edit real-time on a single document and this way everything is organized.

Cons

The downloaded format from Google Drive may seem a bit different which can be irritating at times. If this error is fixed then it is an excellent software to use!

This software have been saving my life for the past year plus.

I advise you use this software, it would change your life

Cons

I racked my brain trying to find the negatives about this software and I cant. I think I would hope they would give more free space to save files without a cost lol

Honestly, it is one of the main storage platforms in the cloud which I have to take everywhere since it is not only useful with android to make backup copies or keep files everywhere such as the photos of the camera or some document , but you can do multiple functions within the website such as edit the document, share with others, make a comment and manage my files in a simple way.

Pros

I will not leave behind the 15GB that give in a gratiuta way to store data, is an acceptable capacity for someone from day to day, as students, administrator, teacher, someone who runs a business, etc. I am attracted to the fluency with which the browser is also very well integrated with the function of sharing files effectively. How good it is to have my files available at all times :)

Cons

Despite having some good features mentioned above I think you have to improve that waiting time when synchronizing or uploading a file. however Google Drive is a good and solid platform!

Pros

The best part about google drive is it is usually free and fairly easy to use. I used it a lot in school previously but now I use it at work as well. It's great for collaboration on documents. Pretty intuitive to use and there are a lot of options (forms, sheets, docs, etc.) inside the Drive.

Cons

The product is easy to use but it struggles with formatting because of that. The easy collaboration can also cause issues at times. The thing I have the most issues with is sharing documents out of a team drive. We've tried to share a group of documents with an outside group before and it can really be a pain. It doesn't allow you to share whole folders with outside users.

Regardless of its drawbacks, I prefer this to Dropbox as it is so ingrained to the Google Suite

Pros

-For Gmail users, it's hard to beat the data storage that is attached to your email
-Having the ability to integrate Google Drive with so many other software products is a huge plus
-Can easily set permissions about who can/ can't

Cons

-Takes a lot of internal coordination about how to label and file info. For larger companies that use a communal Google Drive, need to be exact where and how things will be stored
-Search function is a bit lacking, as it can take significant time to locate the right file (even if searching by exact keywords). This is mostly true for files that have a lot of the same language thoroughout

Google Drive is a powerful tool for any entrepreneur or anyone who wants to share large files easily. No more wetransfers for other clustered programs that tend to upload, send link to your email and then you don't have control over that link after shared.

Pros

1. The real time sharing of everything in the selected folders
2. The shareable link that can be easily created and controlled by the owner of the folder
3. The integration with gmail and android
4. The ease of use with google docs, sheets and other substitutes for microsoft office
5. The ease of uploading and use of microsoft office programs
6. The convenience of having every gmail account with a drive attached to it.

Cons

1. Switching from different drives can be a pain. Some people have more than one (1) email address and when switching from one drive to another, instead of closing that drive and opening on the same window, it usually open in another tab. There should be an option at the start to select what you want to do as I can see this being useful for some people but because I have several email addresses I manage, I don't want several tabs and have to find the one I want.

Pros

Intuitive layout means you can start using Google Drive with almost no instruction. The apps integrate with Microsoft so you can share files and most importantly edit them live. Easy to learn permissions to control who has edit and view access of each part of each file. Having worked on both Google and Dropbox I am a firm favourite of Google. We have recently added Google Team Drive to make accessing all of our company docs ever better.

Cons

There aren't many cons but there are some small formatting issues if you are regularly working on both Google Docs and Microsoft Word/Excel.

Google drive allows you to keep your data on the drive. You are no longer afraid of losing your data. It can keep data as long as you want it. I believe it is safe and secured. They also give you a limited space for free.

It needs fast internet speed to download or upload data. A slow speed internet can take a lot of time to download or upload, especially when file size is excessively huge.

N/A
Pros

The best thing, first off is it's free, which is always a great thing! The second thing is that it can hold so much memory in the drive. I mean I have at least a thousand photos and tons of videos stored in it and never have any issues finding specific photos or videos (once I figured it all out, that is...)! I love that it shows a thumbnail of each photo/video, so you know what you are actually clicking into, which makes it a cinch to find any file at anytime, even on a tiny smart phone. It's always a plus that you can share photos or files so easily, with just a click of the button and it's paramount that they have the audience setting right in clear sight, as to no need to search and worry that your file just went public! Anyway, Google definitely has saved my days many times over!!

Cons

My only pet peeve about it is that it's not organized correctly. When I first started using it a few years back, I felt like I was going around in circles trying to access different areas of the drive? It took me awhile to wrap my brain around where things were saved to, when I accidentally clicked upload to drive and went searching all over for that one file! That's how the whole Google Drive thing started in the first place, by accident! Anyway, once I figured it all out, and believe me, google's "help" pages, at that time, did NOT help at all, I started using it all of the time. But I had so many duplicate files because of not being able to find them originally, it's not even funny, so that was my main pet peeve. And like all software, gadgets, computers, appliances, etc..., there's always a few glitches here and there, but that's to be expected and necessary some times! ;)

I use it for quick access to documents on the go.

Pros

Free. Works like any other Microsoft product but with limitations. Organizes folders and documents like any PC would. Phone app allows the same functionality as a desktop and you can access it anywhere and they give you 15 G's of free storage.

Cons

The Google Sheets, Docs and Slides have about half the functionality of MS Office but again I digress to Free! When you share a file you are only sharing access unless you download and send.

Pros

I was skeptical about using Google Drive in my personal life because I am not one to use a "cloud" service to save my pictures and videos. Google Drive was automatically installed on my new phone and I would have gotten rid of it had I not taken a look at the interface and tried using it on my PC. The ease of access with this software/app is unrivaled and its seamless integration with your phone and computer cannot be beaten. After a few months of using it in my personal life, I moved on to suggesting it in the work place and we have never looked back. I still use it in my personal and professional life to this day. Google has won yet another war: the file sharing show down.

Cons

There are no cons with this product except for the fact that you do have to pay for additional storage. If you're using this for business and storing simple .Docx, .Xls, or .PDF files then you should have more than enough space for thousands upon thousands of documents simply using the free version of the software.

Pros

Google Drive and the apps it includes are perfect for collaboration on group projects and workflow management. It's great because Drive allows all contributors to work and edit the same document at the same time, and you can track all the changes, along with when those changes were made. The autosave feature is fantastic too because it means no more lost work because of human error.

Cons

Being able to work together on a document at the same time does have its disadvantage, as the changes affect everything below it. And the file system isn't as intuitive as I would like, so the UI leaves something to be desired.

Drive is, as noted, very powerful. Being free, and the functionality of it being able to be accessed by anyone with a Google account (read: anyone), I can't imagine a more useful collaborative software for the cost. If you need deep tools, a premium software is probably necessary, but if you are just in need of bare-bones collaborative file sharing, Google Drive is the best one.

Pros

Google Drive is unbelievably powerful. Giving access to the general tools that are within the price-gated Microsoft Office, to a potentially huge team of people, is remarkable. Google has a knack for making products that are free to the user but still feel premium. Google Drive is the perfect example. We used the software for creating things like agendas and training materials for several modules of a training series. We were able to have same-room and telecommuting meetings while looking at the same document, changing in real time. This is the most useful aspect of the software.

Cons

Google Drive can be hard to navigate for those of us who are technologically challenged, or very used to the deeper features in things like Microsoft Word or Excel. A feature that would direct other users to the specific file you may be working in right away might be useful.

I really like Drive and has been really convenient for family trips and whatnot, we just drop all of reservations and itineraries in there before hand and then drop all of pictures in there afterwards so we all know what's going on.

Pros

I can just drag a file over and it uploads super fast. I can then get to it from my laptop or my phone and I can share it super easy with a link or an email invite. I like having everything together in one place with Google.

Cons

The initial storage they give isn't a lot, but it's pretty cheap to upgrade. Other than that, it is super easy to easy.

google drive is really convenient, having 5 gigs free is really helpful for general use and storing smaller files online and sharing stuff via gmail. I'd been using the free 5GB option for a while and decided to go the the 100GB option and it's so worth it. It's really affordable and makes sharing larger files so much easier if you're a videographer or photographer.

Cons

The only thing I'd say that could be fixed is the amount of time it takes to upload files onto google drive, it moves really slow for some reason and at times downloading files from your drive is a bit wonky, maybe some bug fixes need to be made.

In my organization, we use this tool to share files, some times external suppliers share files too, and because I have my own personal google drive, I don't want to mix things.
Google drive is very intuitive and in one single platform you can have all your documents stored separately, even those who has been shared with you.

Pros

The simplicity of the tool with most of the more common features incorporated. It syncs very fast and you can work simultaneously between a PC, an iPad and other devices without glitches.

Doesn't works well with office documents and you need to convert to google docs.

I can easily send a link to a friend to take a look at a document without having to download and send in an email as an attachment. Great for office use too, so multiple people can use the same documents at the same time (easy staff meetings too!).

Cons

I don't like when I can't find a document that I'm looking for and when I find it after using the "search" bar (it's a good search feature) it doesn't show me where the original location of the document is. I find myself having to "search" for the same document every time, as I can't seem to locate it on my own!

Pros

15GB of photo storage for free. Integrates with gmail for saving attachments. Sharing what you want with who you want...

Cons

Big brother is watching you. Ha! Google already knows all there is to know about my life, so what's one more data point? Seriously though, be conscious of what you're saving/saying/doing on any platform. If the product is free, YOU are the product.

I love using it on a day to day basis and a simple go to for most of my needs. Excited to see what other new apps Google will add in the future.

Pros

I like that I do not need to download any software to use any of the apps. It's nice to be able to create a quick slide presentation or document on the fly as long as I have an internet browser. And I like it doubles as cloud storage too. This is big because some cloud servers only allow upload of content created by their app.

Cons

The sheets apps can use a little more work to be honest. It's a great tool but there are some tools that are kind of still in its infancy stage. It may be me, but I cannot seem to get the autofill vs drag cell done properly every time.
Another con, if you can call it that, is that there are a lot of great apps, but kind of hidden. The tool I used the most is the maps tool, where I can custom create my maps. However, most of my friends who use Drive did not know such an app existed as it's hidden under "more apps".

Pros

I can access my files anywhere in a browser, never get blocked by any firewall! Install the app to your PC & phone and you can access it just like a drive.

Cons

Impossible to find the Google Drive app for Mac Desktop! (app for iOS is easy to find)
