How to save files to Google Drive

Hello. In the age we live in it is practically impossible to live without our data. In fact, cloud services were invented for this very reason. Next, I’ll tell you how to save files to Google Drive.

With the word “data” I speak of that huge mass of files made up of personal documents of various kinds, photos, videos, images, etc …

All these files, after a few years, begin to have a huge weight, because they accumulate over time.

You can buy on Amazon at a modest price, for example, a 2-3-4 TB external hard drive, which allows you to safely store your documents.

Later I will explain how to do it and I will help you in choosing the most reliable external memories.

Another way to store your files is to use Google Drive.

I mainly talked about how to lighten the RAM and internal memory of Android devices. Instead, now I want to talk to you about the Google Drive cloud service, which is the most popular, as Google is the owner of the most famous search engine in the world. The big difference between Google Drive and the other clouds lies in the fact that the Mountain View giant uses 15 GB of space without paying a USD, therefore completely free.

How to enter Google Drive

If you have a Gmail account, it means you can use all Google services. From the main Google screen, click with the left mouse button on the icon formed by the 9 squares, located at the top right.

Finally in the screen that opens there will be your Google drive, consisting mainly of a screen with a white background that you can fill with the files you prefer.

Now that you are on Google Drive, using it is very simple: to send data to the drive just drag it to the center of the white screen, leave it and wait for it to load. So the operation can be performed with the drag and drop method.

Google Drive in my opinion is very useful, as it gives you the ability to share files with a distant person.

After you have saved the files to the drive, you can share them with other people by right-clicking on them and selecting the “share” option. In the small window that appears, add the email address of the person to share these files with and, if desired, a small text. To complete everything, click with the left mouse button on the “Finish” button and you will see a “sharing successful” message at the bottom left and you have completed the sharing process.
