Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service developed by Google. Launched on April 24, 2012.

Google Drive allows users to store files on their servers, synchronize files across devices, and share files.

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.

It uses 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.

Drive File Stream 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.

It keep files private until you decide to share them. Avoid multiple versions and file merging by granting others permission to download, edit, comment, or view. You can also give shared files an expiration date.

Users can directly download backup from Google Drive using the Download option of the Google Drive web app.
