Out there, people also know some other cloud storage, one of which is DropBox.
What are the advantages that Google Drive has so that it can shift other cloud storage?
One of the advantages that are favored is that Google Drive services provide 15 GB of online storage space. That way, you can save any photos, stories, designs, videos on Google Drive.
