Have you tried Google Drive yet?  If you’re an early adopter (aka Geek) like me, most likely you have! lol

If not, here’s my two Geek Cents worth….

 

“What is Google Drive?” you ask…

 Google Drive is a cloud service that allows you to store your documents, then access them from your PC, Mac, Tablet, and Smartphone.  There are currently apps available for Windows, Android, and Mac OS.  iOS Apps are stated to be coming soon.

It is very simple to setup and if you already use Google Docs, it automatically moves your Documents to your Google Drive.  You can then setup new folders, create new files, and share/collaborate with others.  Note: You have the option to either keep the files private or share them with individuals (single or multiple).  You files will remain secure if you don’t share them or remain secure between your group.  It also interfaces well with other Google Apps such as GMail and Google+.

Another awesome feature of Google Drive reminds me of Apples Time Capsule/Time Machine.  When you save a version of the file on Google Drive, you can access previous versions up to 30 days in the past.

And another amazing feat…the price!  For up to 5 GB, the service is free.  Want more space?  You can upgrade to 25 GB for $2.50 a month and 100 GB for only $5.00 a month!!!
