Very convenient

2018-05-07

Pros

I've tried everything from Dropbox and OneDrive, to SpiderOak and Mega, but Drive just does everything slightly better.

Cons

My minor gripe is that the direct links to files inside Google Drive are not recognized by many services for example when you need to place a link to an image.

Convenient, but not a Dropbox competitor

2018-09-16

The best thing about Drive is its cheap pricing and tight integration with other apps. However, without those, there are much better cloud solutions available for both individuals and enterprises. If you're still wary about security when it comes to Google, I'd recommend using NextCloud paired with your own hosting solutions that you trust.

Pros

Drive works well with other Google apps, storing all sorts of documents in it. It is provides good integration with other third-party apps, such as ZipBooks and Whatsapp, making it very reliable. It offers a very substantial storage for free, as well as a sufficiently large store solution for enterprises on the cheap. It also offers good encryption for those files.

Cons

I would call it a Dropbox competitor if it wasn't for the fact that Drive distinctly lacks Linux support, instead requiring third-party solutions to work with it -- something that has never been a problem with something like SpiderOak, which I highly recommend.
