Hi Jdonnel,

The news you've heard is true. The code name for that Google project is called "Drive". It is the response of the growing demand of mobile access to personal files stored in the internet. The basic membership for this must be free, but if you need more space for your files, you have to pay.

The company provides 2 gigabytes of free storage for individual users, a 50 gigabytes at $9 plan per month, and a $100 plan for $19. "Drive" will allow users to upload documents, photos and videos to Google servers for sharing to other and retrieval if needed. It will join with the Google Music, a service that takes advantage of the Google search technology.

Yes it is true according to a very reliable source more reports are emerging of the expected imminent launch of Google Drive, Google’s cloud-based storage service which will compete against the likes of Dropbox, Box, Amazon’s Cloud Drive, Apple’s iCloud and Microsoft’s SkyDrive.

It goes on to offer a few bits of new information, including that users will have access to a maximum of 100GB of storage space, with various levels of capacity available for different monthly fees.

Google Drive will also have a free option, giving users a reasonable 5GB of storage space.Reuters’ source also says that Google Drive will work with “sophisticated image search technology to let consumers sift through a wide variety of document types, which could include the likes of Adobe PDF files and photographs. ”

Cloud-based storage services like these allow users to keep all their digital data — such as documents, images and music — on a remote server, enabling easy access across a number of web-connected devices, including PCs, mobile phones and tablets.
