question...

Comment by jj123321 about Google Drive Sep 2014

I'm having trouble trying to figure out if i should save stuff to my Gdrive or my verizon cloud.
A couple things I've noticed, (bare with me here i'm not really good with comp stuff)

verizon cloud on my PC won't allow me to play,watch or open files. It does allow me to on my android phone though.

Gdrive also did not allow me to open a MS Office document that i really needed at the moment. That's when i gave up on it. I do, however, enjoy the fact that i can access it easier through my PC Chrome/Google web browser. (more convenient)

Basically my question is: Which one is better? (pros and cons)

Thanks

~~JJ

Local folder cannot be changed in Google Drive

Negative Comment by em4020 about Google Drive and Dropbox, Macrium Reflect, Jul 2012

The folder location of the local folder is C:\Users\MyUser\Google Drive
and cannot be changed to another drive or partition in the Settings of Google Drive Version 1.2.3123.0250.
So, if you make a Drive-Image-Backup with Macrium Reflect of C:\ all personal Data are included and you cannot separate it from the system data.

Local folder cannot be changed

In difference to DropBox you cannot change the language in the Google-Drive-App to make an english screenshot for AlternativeTo.net.

If you don't have Drive yet, select "notify me" on GDrive page, and the Docs space will automatically be upgraded to 5GB.

Fantastic real time editing by multiple users

Positive Comment by Thelle about Google Drive and LibreOffice, Microsoft Office Suite, Jan 2012

Google docs is so good because it can handle real time editing by multiple users. It also stacks good basic editing tools, but lack some more advanced editing features which is easy to do in for example MS Office or Libra Office..

Comment by arahman56 about Google Drive Jun 2010

Has a great online editor, great collaboration features, and now lets you upload any file.

Storage is limited to 1GB, but allows paying for more storage.

and most people do not realize just how cheap google storage is. At the moment is starts at $5/yr for 20GB, and the value only gets better as you move up. If you are committed to the google apps, storage will never be a problem.
