Google Drive Cloud Storage review
Google Drive is the easiest way to share information between myself and my coworkers. When I need to do work and I don't have my laptop with me, I can log into Google Drive and I'm able to access my work from anywhere. The best part about it Google Drive is that it's free as long as you have a Google account. Other users can also share work via the drive so that I can have what I need, when I need it.
