Google Drive is a file creation and collaboration set of applications that are cloud-based. This simply means that they are housed on the Internet. Because files are stored in the cloud, they can be accessed from any device that has an Internet connection, which helps with data loss. Each Google account comes with an unlimited amount of free storage and items created in Google formats do not count against the free storage space. Users can upload documents from different file formats into their Google accounts for easier access from device to device. Google Drive allows users to interface with applications that have the familiarity of well known products like Microsoft Office.
