A great advantage of working in the cloud is the collaboration possibilities that open up. On the one hand, with G Suite, you will no longer have to work with different versions of files.

  1. I've had 2 problems with this.
    Files made in Word, once opened in Google Docs, the formats are deconfigured and vice versa.
    Syncing files from the cloud to the desktop is slow, causing changes to be lost to even files that the application says are up to date but have not been uploaded. (Which has never happened to me in Dropbox, but in One Drive)
    In addition, drive desktop maintains much higher network traffic than drop.

    Any way I can avoid these problems. ??
