The origins of the internet can be traced to more than six decades ago when researchers started to explore the potential of packet switching. In time a series of standards surfaced, and they were used for the creation of the ARPANET in 1969. As for the cloud storage, invented much later, Google Drive is one of the best options that we have.
Cloud Storage Is A Popular Method To Store Files
In 1982 the world was revolutionized by the implementation of the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP), which contributed to the spread of the new technology around the globe. As the technology was adopted at an intercontinental level, commercial services and platforms have surfaced.
Millions of people from all over the world use the internet to perform a variety of tasks. One of the most popular abilities that are currently available allows users to store valuable files into the cloud, intending to keep them safe.
Traditional data storage methods can be useful, but most of them tend to be vulnerable in front of a variety of factors. For example, it may be convenient to store data on a DVD, but if the readable surface of the disk is scratched, it is no longer usable. Some prefer to store large amounts of data on HDDs, but they have to be kept in a controlled environment.
Google Drive Update Brings Several Improvements
Google Drive is an excellent cloud storage service that offers the ability to keep files safe while also having the option to access them from a variety of devices.
The clean and straightforward user interface is easy to understand, even for those who aren’t tech-savvy. A handy search bar will offer the option to find files by merely looking for their name or content type. It is also convenient to organize files into specific folders that can be shared seamlessly with others.
A handy scanner feature will be quite useful when you need to share a printed document with friends or colleagues. The latest update, Google Drive 2.20.061.04, comes with new performance enhancements and improvements, as well as with some security patches.
