Google Drive is a client for the cloud service of the same name, which allows you to store any files in the online storage, as well as easily access them from computers and some portable devices connected to the network. It is quite young and was created as a competitor to another popular service called Dropbox. The principle of both cloud storages is almost identical, but Google's service is observed to provide faster download speeds and initially provide the user with 5 GB of space in the "cloud" against 2 GB of Dropbox. As mentioned above, the Google Drive client can also be downloaded to your portable devices. Its versions are available for iOS and Android operating systems.
It will take you no more than a minute to install the program. Once this is complete, you will need to enter your Google account information and start using the service. To upload files to the storage, you just need to add them to your local Google Drive folder. The latter is accessed by double-clicking on the program icon in the notification panel.
