What are the advantages of Drive

Get all the storage capacity you need:
  • Google Workspace provides flexible storage options so you will always have enough space for your files. With centralized administration, data loss prevention, and Vault for Drive, you can easily manage users and file sharing to help meet data compliance needs.
Find what’s important before you've even searched:
  • Drive uses Google AI to predict and surface what’s important for you in real-time. Drive recognizes important content, collaborators and events, using features like Quick Access and ML-based search enhancements to connect each user with files that may require attention.

Organize team files in a shared space:
  • Use shared drives to store your team’s work in secure, easy-to-manage shared spaces. Any files added to shared drives are owned collectively by the team, so everyone stays up to date.
Use less of your PC/Mac disk space & stream directly from the cloud:
  • Drive for desktop gives you access to files directly from your computer, without impacting all of your disk space. Spend less time waiting for files to sync and more time being productive.
