What is Google Drive?

Google Drive allows you to access your uploaded files from anywhere you are connected to the internet. Just go to to create and view files such as documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and forms. Google Drive has 15 GB of free storage, but more space can be purchased if necessary. Google Drive is excellent for collaboration, as files can be viewed and edited by other users that you share the file with.
