Solved: LibreOffice files and Google Drive

Postby RevMike » Tue Feb 12, 2013 12:58 pm

I am thinking of storing LibreOffice files that I want to access on my laptop and share with colleagues.
How easy is it to move files to GDrive or save directly into it?
What is the compatibility like?
Any other problems - or indeed benefits?
Thanks folks,

Google Drive is just like Dropbox or Ubuntu One, a cloud storage service. When you have a Gmail account, you have Google Drive too. You can access it by any webbrowser, so there's not really a big need for a Google Drive client. And you can access your documents anywhere on this planet if you access to the internet.

I haven't encountered any problems. I just edit/create files/documents and later on upload them using Firefox.
