We use Google Drive for file sharing. If we need something more secure, we have our own internal protocol.

The local file system is not great. It’s impossible to send a link that opens the local file when you have folders on Google Drive synced locally. The usability standpoint could be improved. It is a great collaboration tool and all of the free storage space is great.

We had to choose between Google Drive and Dropbox when creating Sendtask, and we decided to build it with Google Drive. What we like about Google Drive over Dropbox is that it comes with Docs & Spreadsheets which we can edit collaboratively.

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.

How startups use Google Drive?

Google Drive’s easy, collaborative nature, familiar UX and seamless integration with all-things Google, make it popular among companies of all sizes that make Google their productivity platform of choice.
