Google Drive is a Google-developed file storage and syncing service. Google Drive, which was launched on April 24, 2012, allows users to store files in the cloud, sync data across devices, and share files. Google Drive has programs for Windows and macOS PCs, as well as Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, in addition to a web interface. Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides are all part of the Google Docs Editors office suite, which allows you to collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, forms, and more. Google Docs files are preserved on Google Drive after they’ve been generated and modified.
Google Drive saves and organizes your files in the cloud so you can access them whenever you want. If a user accidentally deletes a file from Google Drive, there are ways to retrieve it from the trash bin. After 30 days, the file will be automatically erased from the trash folder. Others can view a shared file that you delete from Google Drive until you permanently delete it. There is no method to recover a file once it has been removed from the trash.
