Google, as expected, has joined the cloud storage space with the launch of their new product Google Drive.
Some will say that Google Drive is an expansion of the Google Documents product because Documents has been renamed to Drive.
Google Drive comes with 5GB of free storage space and keeps all your files in one place on the cloud that you can access in your home, at the office or on the move using your mobile phone.
There are upgrade plans available to purchase more space if you require more space.
Like most other cloud providers Google has an application that can be downloaded that then puts a shortcut to your drive on your computer for simple drag and drop (or copy and paste).
Google Drive gives you access to Google Docs so you can edit and share your files with whoever you like.
Some tech critics have been fast to comment on what Google Drive lacks, but with it only being launched a week we can assume that Google will develop and add more features in the near future.
Google Drive is currently available for PC, Mac and Android mobile phones.
Google say that there is an app for the iPhone and iPad coming soon.
To activate and start using your drive you can go to https://drive.google.com
