Google Drive Review

Tina de Pierre
Access your Google Drive files directly from Windows Explorer
A review of Google Drive by Tina de Pierre

If you have a Gmail account, or pretty much any type of account from Google, then you most likely already have access to their free 5GB of storage. Google Drive for Windows is a program which will allow you to access your Google Drive from the Windows Explorer just like a local folder.

Previously, Google Drive was separate from Google Docs, Google Plus, Gmail, etc. but now offers all of your files in a central place.

Google Drive for Windows is similar to the DropBox application which is an alternative online storage service. Like DropBox, Google Drive allows you to store pretty much any type of file on their cloud.

In addition to private data, public data is also available from the Google Drive -- data on which your friends can comment on!

There are still some things which Google hasn't gotten right with its Drive product, but it's getting there.

Google Drive can clone files and directories, open DOC and DOCX files, synchronize with the cloud and protect from data loss.

Google Drive is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from cloud storage software without restrictions. Google Drive 3.42.9858.3671 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This cloud storage software is filed under:
  • Google Drive Download

  • Major release: Google Drive 3.42
  • Free Software Download

Compatibility with this cloud storage software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Google.
