Google Drive is everything for us. We use it extensively.

We’re transitioning from Dropbox to Google Drive because it does almost the same thing and it’s a unified experience with other Google products. But they just announced that they’re going to take away personal plans and may introduce pricey business plans soon, so perhaps we may have to revisit this decision.

We try to use Google apps as much as we can. I’m excited about some of the changes that have been announced. There are definitely some negatives around Google Drive compared to Dropbox around team sharing but they’re being worked on. The Google Suite is part of our organization because it provides the same level of organization to everyone.

Google Drive - Best File Sharing Tools for Startups

Google Drive is a cloud-based file-sharing and storage platform that functions as a repository for all Google Apps, allowing you to upload and access your files for easy access from any browser or mobile device. Google Drive makes real-time collaboration a breeze, though the foremost complaint among the Stacklist community is Drive’s file organization; many founders feel that files can quickly become chaotic and disorganized, making Drive an unsustainable choice as they scale. Qualms aside, Google Drive is still the most popular file-sharing tool among the Stacklist community because of its strong collaborative capabilities and seamless integration with other Google products.
