Pros

Super helpful and helps you organize your files. I think living in today's world its important to have everything saved on a cloud, preferably more than one just incase anything happens to the other.
I find it great to be able to access your documents anywhere you are, and it's easy to share documents that can be edited live. I also enjoy the fact that you can see who is logged in at each time.
What I like most about Google Drive is that works seamlessly in Gmail, on my phone, off and online. It is fast, responsive, is super secure, anyone can see docs you share, and it's low price.

Pros

Used it multiple times to pay for travels and hotels is Asia, where the hotels don't have PayPal or accept credit cards. Super awesome service, and you feel secure from start to finish.
It’s really good to have transfer space of up to 2gig but also I like that quality of pictures and videos are not compromised. It’s very easy to use, you only need emails to transfer files.
WeTransfer is great for sharing files, and the best for sharing large-sized files. It is fast, reliable, easy to use, and has an amazing interface.

Cons

The only problem I have is when my internet connection is bad it takes forever to upload the videos.
The confidentiality of the files stored is doubtful. It is of high risk to store private and confidential information on the cloud since it can be leaked to outside if it is hacked.
Sometimes I have issues with the video I download being turned sideways and having to correct that mistake. It is frustrating but nothing that can't be handled.

Cons

Only negative is that some companies have fire-walls that block WeTransfer links, preventing the files from being downloaded from their servers.
I am unable to think of anything negative about my experience with this software.
If for some reason I forget to download, I have to request it again. Taking that out would not have things to criticize.

Google Drive

Useful for saving offline divices

Reviewed 2 years ago

I use it all of the time for file sharing, and prefer it to WeTransfer.

Pros

I like that I can share files easily, edit and collaborate with other writers in real time in digital format.

Cons

I don't like that video files are hard to load on mobile - on computer it looks fine, but the mobile version can be clunky and not as reliable for videos.

Google Drive is a great tool, even better if you know how to work it

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Google Drive is great for sharing documents among team members - its also good for sharing huge files versus using a service like WeTransfer

Cons

Its kind of confusing to use, at times. Once you push through the UI quirks, its a great tool, but there is a minor learning curve.
