Google Drive

If you have a gmail account you are probably familiar with Google Drive. Drive has a number of different features, but there are two main ones. The first is that it gives you access to Google Docs, which allows you to create, edit, and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The second is that Drive allows you to store files in an online cloud storage server. The service comes with 5GB of space free, however more are available by subscription.
