I have always like Google products and I have high hopes for Google Drive. I have been using Dropbox for a while now and I love it but I need more space. It looks like Google and Microsoft (Skydrive) have saved me a few pounds! Thanks!
Below are the screen grabs from my Google Drive install. The install was very quick on my Windows 7 laptop. No reboot was required.
Step 1: Go to drive.google.com and click sign up.
Step 2: Accept the Terms of Service.
Step 3: Let the Google Drive installer download the files it needs.
Step 4: Sign into your Google Account.
Step 5: Click close once the installation has been complete.
Step 6: Click next on Google Drive wizard.
Step 7: For default installation click ‘Start sync’ or click ‘Advanced setup’ to specify your installation.
Step 8: Configure and click ‘Start sync’ once you are complete.
Step 9: In the Notification area on the task bar (by the clock) look for the Google Drive icon and right click to access your Google Drive menu.
