This is what Google terms says for Google drive for users with Google personal account.
"When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. "

omg....that's super scary...thank u

To be fair, Google literally has to ask for these rights to be able to provide their services.
"use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works" > Store your files on their servers and make copies of them on various servers.
"communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content" > make a file or multiple files public if you share files with others or actually make them available to the public.
If they do not ask for these permissions in the first place you would have to accept custom terms for every single file you upload or share.

use it all the time

i keep documents here, you can make them, share and this really makes life easier.

Yes, and it has 15 Gb of free space not only 2 Gb like Dropbox. Also, now you can edit your documents in the google drive. Bery practical and useful. By the way, sophiaschuler600 since you are a user of this website, I would really appreciate some feedback for my review of this site, I just started a Youtube Channel.

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

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

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.
