  1. I started using Drive last week when I needed to share a HUGE presentation file with a colleague across the state. It was way to busy to email and she needed it that day. I uploaded the Keynote (much like PowerPoint) to my Drive. Once uploaded, I shared it with her. She was able to download it in full and begin using it within the afternoon. I will admit it took longer to upload than I thought but it was a very big file.

    Great new use of my Google Docs/Drive…thanks for sharing Zac.
