Google Docs adds free 1GB cloud storage

Google Docs adds cloud storage

Google have announced an update to their Google Docs service, which now lets users upload, store and organise any type of file and access them from any computer (internet connection permitting, natch).

Back in the day, folks resorted to emailing files to themselves to keep their stuff stored in the cloud, but Google Docs now gives the ability to shunt any file up to 250 MB on to their servers.

Users will be offered a total of 1 GB of free storage for files not converted into one of the Google Docs formats (i.e. Google documents, spreadsheets, and presentations), and if that’s not enough, extra space can be bought for $0.25 per GB per year.

This certainly simplifies the process of backing up important files online, and freelancers will particularly like the flexibility of storing files online backed by the ability to upload files to shared folders.

Uploaded files will also be searchable with common document file types viewable via the the Google Docs viewer.

We say: what’s not to like?
