There are many tools that help in data storage and also manage it well. Google Drive is a social media tool that is indispensable in performing the routine business tasks effectively. Here are  the 10 main advantages of Google Drive that help you carry out the tasks easily and meaningfully. Here we go!

1) Link Google Drive With Gmail Account

Link Google Drive with Gmail account so as to attach the Gmail files directly to the drive. The attached file need not be uploaded again unlike in traditional practice where the attachment must be uploaded after clicking on the attach button. Google Drive asks to send only the link of the file for the user to download it at his end. So, instead of using the traditional method of attaching the files, use the option of Google Drive to make the process faster and convenient.

2) Link It With Google Plus

Google Drive makes it easier to add the photos to the Google Plus account. The process is as simple as selecting the option of ‘from Google Drive’ while adding a new photo in a conversation at your Google Plus account. Isn’t it easy and fun to transfer your favourite pictures from the drive to Google Plus account and share it with a wider audience?

3) Website Images Can Be Stored Easily

There is no need to store the images or links found on a website on the desktop or at any other place which you forget later on and it becomes difficult to retrieve the same. With Google Drive at your service any image or link that is relevant for the business can simply be stored in Google Drive by right clicking on the image or the link. Hit the option ‘save to Google Drive’ and take the process further by clicking the relevant option from the two choices available i.e. ‘Save link to Google Drive’ or ‘Save image to Google Drive’. The retrieval process is as simple as the storage one. So just start utilising this amazing feature of Google Drive by installing the Chrome extension for saving the things like documents, videos, audios etc. to Google Drive.

4) Edit The Google Drive Stuff Online

Images are something that normally require editing on a frequent basis. Google Drive makes it quite easy to edit the pictures saved here and just demands one simple action from your side i.e. to install Pixlr Editor on the Chrome browser. Pixlr editor has many interesting and relevant features that help in editing a photograph with great ease. Just right click on the photo that you need to edit, let it get open and then start experimenting with your editing skills. The experience that you will get will be nothing less than perfect as compared to Photoshop. The experts will be able to save a lot of time which in turn will help in the growth of the business.

5) Give Instagram Effect To The Photos

Filter the photos on Google Drive under various categories and give them Instagram effect. This is possible with the help of a feature called Pixlr Express which is an extended feature of Google Chrome.

6) Improvise The Videos

Edit the videos using Pixorial Video. Install it to Google Chrome and then you can easily watch the videos online in the Drive, thanks to the Pixorial Video library.

The company expert can experiment with his video editing skills and if creative enough can come up with the basic videos by just trimming the suitable video clips, adding music to it or make any required alterations.

7) Add The Files Directly To Google Drive

You must have found it very irritating to first open up the Drive and then add any file in it. Isn’t it? But now there is no need of doing the same as there has come an option to just download it and get it installed on the desktop. After the installation process is complete, navigate to ‘users’ first and then move to ‘yourusername’ option which in turn will take you to ‘AppData’ and then ‘roaming’. The further process includes selecting the ‘Microsoft’, ‘windows’ and finally ‘SendTo’. After following all these steps in strict sequence, right click and drag the Drive to ‘SendTo’ folder from the ‘Favourites’ panel. When you right click on the mouse, a menu appears and then you need to hit the ‘copy here’ option in the same. This has made it possible to set the Google Drive to ‘SendTo’ menu of the Windows. Now, it has become a matter of a single click in case you wish to add a file to the Drive.

8) An Unique Feature Called Revision History

Goggle Drive enables you to retrieve a file in one month from the date of deletion. If a file has been deleted accidentally, it can be recovered with no loss within a time period of 30 days. To restore the revision done in the past, there are few simple steps that must be followed viz. Ctrl + Alt+ G.
