Good price (100 GB for I think 2 bucks monthly), but one should never forget that the data is visible to Google, all their sub companies, authorities, etc.

We know that Google removed the "Don't be evil" slogan years ago... and we can assume what Google is doing with our private data.

In the combination of any encryption tool for protecting your data on their space - one of the best cloud storage ever:

  • super fast internet connection (I frequently from different regions and dedi servers can see speeds like 10Gbit/s (yes, you got me right TEN Gygabites per second). No one in the market can't afford or do that.
  • super stable files
  • If not used for storing something really personal, their search features pretty neat, I like them.
  • A lot of really nice features
  • Fair, and good pricing. Not ideal, but still not weird as many competitors do.
  • Fast and stable download speeds from around the world, and this is very important for people who share a lot of files for work with colleagues, etc...

Cons:

  • They killed their good tool for sharing data but can be replaced by Cyberduck, or any other alternative (there are dozens of them)
  • As far as I know, they have a bad reputation because of privacy, but if you will use some kind of encryption with tools above, they can be good storage. Personally, I never will store there anything really critical.

If you love Google Drive, but hate their tedious interface, check out Multcloud.com. It's a much simpler way to organize and move around your files, especially if you use more than one account and/or other cloud storage like onedrive, mega, box, etc...

As is the case with any Google thing, I wonder who my stuff is getting shared with.

Cheaper but less reliable than DropBox

about Google Drive · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

Let's face it GoogleDrive is cheaper: for 100GB, it's 5$ per month vs 10$ per month for DropBox.
If you share a lot with family, friends and coworkers, GoogleDrive won't fill their own space, making it even cheaper, by far.

But GoogleDrive is also way less reliable as far as syncing is concerned. The application freezes very often, and file to sync detection fails regularly.

Google has to troubleshoot these problems in order to be competitive.

Local folder cannot be changed in Google Drive

about Google Drive and Dropbox, Macrium Reflect · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

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.
