Software Description

In Google Drive online storage users can keep photos, stories, designs, drawings, recordings, and videos.
All files in Drive can be reached from any smartphone, tablet, or computer, with possibility to invite others to view, download, and collaborate on a set of files.
The service works with Drive, Gmail and Google Photos, so it is possible to store files, save email attachments and back-up photos directly to Drive.

Software Description

Sync.com is a cloud service that makes it easy for users to access and share their files from virtually any computer, phone or mobile device - without giving up their right to privacy.

Once a user has created an account and installed the app, files and folders added to Sync get backed up to the cloud and instantly synced to all their connected devices. Users can also share their files and folders, making Sync perfect for collaborating with teams or sharing files with clients and customers.

Most importantly, Sync has been designed from the ground up to protect user privacy. Sync's unique cloud storage platform and apps have end-to-end encryption built-in, which protects files added to Sync from unauthorized access. Additionally, Sync does not collect or sell user data or usage information to advertisers or other third-parties. This makes Sync an ideal solution for storing and sharing confidential files and sensitive data.
