Google is one of the largest software manufacturers of the world. It keeps on sending updates to its manufactured software’s to increase their functionality. The company has now announced another update for one of its popular app. This time it is the Google drive that is likely to receive the update. Google has scheduled the update to roll out globally on 28th of June. The update will enhance many features of the Google drive.
The company is going to change Google drive into a backup device for all the systems across the world. Earlier, Google drive can backup and store the files in the drive folder. But after the update, the Google drive will backup and restore any of the folder or files on your system. Even, the user will be able to backup and restore entire computer using Google drive. This new feature will come in the form of a new application Backup and Sync.
One thing surprising, here, is that Google offers a 15GB of free storage capacity. Now if a person will intend to backup his whole system, the user will run short of the storage capacity. Experts are also of the view that this new Backup and Sync app will replace the pre-existing Google Drive and Google Photos applications. But Google has recommended it only for the regular or domestic users. The commercial users will stick to the existing version of the Google Drive application. This is because it will make difficult for the users to search a file from a huge collection of files and folders.
Still, the company has not made it clear that whether the users would be able to use the drive app for multiple systems or not. It will, however, support some of the editing features as it already does.
The more will be revealed after its release later in this month. We will study the user’s reviews to judge the success of this application.
