Google Drive lets you store and access your files anywhere -- on the web, on your hard drive, or on the go. Here’s how it works: 1. Go to Google Drive on the web at drive.google.com. 2. Install Google Drive on your computer or mobile device. 3. Throw your files in Google Drive. It’s right there on your device. Now your files go everywhere you do. Change a file on the web, on your computer, or on your mobile device and it updates on every device where you’ve installed Google Drive. Share, collaborate, or work alone: your files, your choice.

Goggle drive is a great cloud storage service. I have been using it to store safety meeting topics and share them with my other team members. It has a great search function that reads the text inside the documents and let you find what you are looking for.

Use the spreadsheets extensively for collaboration. Live multi-edit is fantastic. Integrated forms are also very nice. There is some wiggyness with copy/paste when you have frozen collumns/rows, but overall, a solid product. And free! (well, at the cost of some privacy, but if you have gmail already, they already have all your data anyway) ;)

Google Drive falls in the top 5 spots when it comes to cloud storage and cloud file access wit h its deep integration in most if not all of Google's core services.

Google Drive allows the ability to be collaborative with other teams members easier versus Dropbox where others can overwrite one of your files when drag-and-dropping files into their shared folders.

I like to see more Google Drive integration with other third-party developers on their apps because its truly really amazing, but so far Dropbox and iCloud are in the lead in terms of app integrations. Google knows where their going so this outcome should change soon :)

I have essentially put aside my Microsoft Office Suite and converted all my documents to Google Drive documents. Drive owes a lot to MS Office and certainly falls short of those more full-featured apps in ways, but the ability to share, organize, and collaborate on docs in real-time is a revelation (some of these real time tools I remember from the short-lived Google Wave - may it rest in peace). I'm totally obsessed with the spreadsheets - they incorporate functions and queries much like Excel and can be integrated with input forms (though this falls well short of Access-type databases). Spreadsheets can reference data from sheets within the same doc or from external docs. Users can share some sheets but keep others protected from other editors (which is great to keep input spreadsheets separate from query and sum spreadsheets). If you know Google App Script you can take spreadsheets even farther and build custom apps, but at this point you may consider other database routes like SQL / PHP.

Aside from Dropbox, this is about the best online cloud storage service. The best thing it has going for it is the ability to collaborate in real time with online documents, presentations, and other items.
