"I'm satisfied with the basic function. it's convenient to share documents or download shared documents you need.""Though I don't see a major difference between Google Drive Enterprise and other competitors, I find that the solution is easy to use. You just need to connect to it and upload files and give access to users who need access to the files. It's very easy to manage files and share files on Google Drive Enterprise, and these are its most valuable features.""I can check emails from anywhere, and use the applications wherever I am.""When we collaborate on a team project, everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the project.""I also use OneDrive, but I prefer Google Drive because it's available on many platforms and devices, so it gives a wide variety for backups, especially on Android systems.""Offers good storage.""Compared to other solutions such as Microsoft, this solution offers faster synchronization.""I like that it's easy to use.

Cons
"Some of our customers are facing issues if they've deployed in hybrid mode.""Everything they have should be integrated into one item."

More Citrix ShareFile Cons →

"The desktop app could be improved, especially how it functions in the Windows environment.""The only thing that's really been annoying is the single file size limit.""In the free version, managing the files and folders and data is a little difficult.""I had some issues with permissions at first. I have to ask for Drive permissions because I'm a new doctoral student. Sometimes I have to ask for permission because I can't access this kind of document, but recently they fixed that by adding me to their team. Now I can access any document that my department supervisors and staff share on Drive.""I have sometimes observed that when the data is very huge or there are so many rules, Google Sheets documents get stuck while uploading. It keeps on loading the document and gives an error. There should be an improvement in this aspect. It should be quick. Currently, we have to wait for a long time.""Google Drive Enterprise is not scalable.""I would like to see larger storage capabilities.""I'd like some UI enhancements for an even better user experience."
