Google Drive Reviews

Great for Gmail users

about Google Drive · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

If you're a Gmail user, Google drive is perfect. Not only does it sync with your email, but makes team collab so much easier. It also gives users a lot of free space (15 GB for the individual) and makes work much easier. I can access documents from my phone and make edits on the go.

Exactly that, thanks.

Google Drive is the best.

about Google Drive and Degoo · · Helpful Not helpful

I have tested more or less all of the free cloud storage apps out there and I think Google Drive is the best. It integrates so well with Android and Gmail and Foto. It has 15Gb storage plus unlimited storage for your Pictures, that is more than enough for me. I have uninstalled all backup and restore apps for Android because Android already have backup and restore features built in the OS and it backs up to Google Drive.

For Windows 10 i use Degoo which offers 100Gb of free cloud storage and it has a very simple backup where you chose the mapps and files you want to backup, I only take backup of my user files every 24 hours automatically, it works well and is very simple.

I create documents, presentations, sheets on google drive and we can also share it then and there with people. All changes are saved in drive and can be accessed from anywhere.

Much better alternative than Dropbox

about Google Drive · · Helpful Not helpful

Larger space, trash functionality so that the files you deleted won't immediately disappear, much better pricing model... I don't see why people shouldn't ditch Dropbox in favor of it!

Cheaper but less reliable than DropBox

about Google Drive · · Helpful Not helpful

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

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.

I miss a portable version, proxy setting & BlackBerry access

about Google Drive and Dropbox · · Helpful Not helpful

I like the Google-services and the idea of Google Drive.
But I like also, that (only) DropBox is able to sync in a company network with a proxy setting and on a computer with admin rights. I like to open, edit and write the DropBox Files in my BlackBerry 9860 with OS7.0.

So my requests for Google Drive are:

  • Please provide a proxy setting like DropBox for syncing in company networks!

  • Please make a portable Google Drive as soon as possible!

  • Please make a BlackBerry App to open, edit and write the Google-Drive-Files on a BlackBerry 9860 with OS7.0

Terrible service provided by the terrible company.

about Google Drive and Google Docs (Suite) · · Helpful Not helpful

I personally hate Google - they steal your information a lot and I hate it. But the service is okay. Until you realize they scan the files to bring you ads. Until you realize they keep what you delete. Until you realize they can change it for you, give themselves very private files; etc. Very likely to happen with Google Drive.

Overall: 0 out of 5 stars. Truly terrible.
