Google Drive – All your files, ready where you are

Google drive allows you to store any file you want, and starts off giving you 15gb of free storage.  You can access your files on your computer, smartphone or tablet.  You can easily share files and collaborate with others.  Your files are encrypted using SSL, the same protocols used on Gmail and other Google services.  Unlike some other cloud storage, you can upload files that are as large as 1TB.  You can purchase more space and get up to 1TB for $9.99 per month.  What’s also cool is that it has a very powerful searching tool that you can enter a text for an item and it can search for the name or the image.  You can also use GoogleApps that include Docs, Sheets and Slides, as well as QuickOffice and Google Forms. One more interesting tidbit… you can Scan Documents!
