If you make use of cloud-based storage services like Dropbox and Box, then you are going to get another wonderful service at your disposal in a week’s time. The most-awaited cloud-based storage service from Google is now just a week away. The service actually came into notice in February 2012 when Wall Street Journal reported that the search engine company is going to launch a cloud-based service soon.

You can expect a 5GB of free storage space with Google Drive along with the flexibility to use “desktop folders” on both Windows and Mac computers.

Dropbox already has a good customer base and it has been considered as the main contender of Google Drive in the field of cloud-based storage services. So, Google has to come up with something great to lure users towards this new service.
