I would like to know about how to use Google drive, which will act as an additional drive in our system,
How does it works and how we can access it from our computer and how to access it through the Internet from any other system.
Thanks in Advance,

How to use Google drive
Yes you can access the Google Drive using the internet and the good thing here is you can access all your files saved on Google Drive in any devices you want any time and anywhere. Google Drive is compatible with computer with OS on Windows and Mac OS X and also compatible with Android and IOS devices. You will be given 5GB free cloud storage and if you want to have additional storage you can buy it for a cheaper price.
You can use your Gmail account to log-in to Google Drive, once you are logged-in click the "Drive" link at the top the page.
(I have to hide my information so I put the red color)
If you want to access your Google Drive on any devices and computer you need to download it by clicking the ""Download Drive for PC" but if you want to use your Web browser just ignore it and start creating new files by clicking the "Create".
Choose for whatever you want to create.
You can also upload your files or folder and can share it to anyone you choose.
How to use Google drive
To use Google Drive you need to have a Google account first. To access Google Drive you may visit Google Drive. If you don’t have a Google account yet, sign up and then login using your new account.
If you already have a Gmail account, visit Google Drive and then login using your Gmail account.
After logging in you will see the Google Drive screen similar to the image below.
To upload a file or folder, click the Upload button and then select either Files or Folder. See image.
The files you uploaded will appear on your dashboard. If it doesn’t, simply click “All items” just like what you see in the image above to display all uploaded files. Downloading the Google Drive application is optional. The program will automatically synchronize your computer’s contents with that of your Google Drive account. See image.
To share a file you uploaded with someone you know right-click on the file, point to Share, and then select Share. See image.
In “Sharing settings” dialog box, enter the credentials in “Invite people” like the name, the email address, and so on. See image.
