STATES CHRONICLE – Google is trying to make its drive as efficient as any cloud storage unit, and for this end, the company has added new features to the Drive. Here is how to manage your Google Drive easier with these new features.
More and more people, including companies, have turned to cloud storage in order to keep their files in order and in handy. And there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who save all their files in a folder and searches them by name, later on, and those who come up with complicated personalized filing systems, folders within folders. The Google Drive is meant to satisfy both kinds of people, being designed to be as user-friendly as a cloud storage unit could be.
In pursuance of meeting their clients’ demands, the company added a couple of improvements to the storage unit. In order to manage your Google Drive easier with these new features, you must first understand how they work and what they were designed to do.
The first feature is added to improve the “mirror” task in the Drive. If the users that are browsing the files shared with them they will either see on the screen a button for Add to Drive or one for Move. The first will appear in the case in which the file is not already on the Drive. The function of the button is pretty self-explanatory. The later will appear when the file is already in the storage unit. In this case, the users will be able to move the file as they choose fit.
The second feature is the possibility of taking files that are previewed and adding them to the personal Google Drive. This should come in handy for those using the Google Hangout product.
And last, but not the least important, is the fact that users can now search for a file in the Drive and, upon finding it, drag and drop it directly to another folder. This feature is actually very useful and time-saving since the search only revealed the file and its location. If the users wanted, until now, to move the respective file, they would have had to locate it, go to its location and then move it.
Google is trying hard to make its products user-friendly, and especially, business friendly. And since businesses are very keen on an organized filing system, it is only obvious that Google Drive is only improving feature after feature.
