1TB+ Online Storage

I just filled up my $10/month Google Drive 1TB plan. The next step up is $100/month 10TB plan, which I can't afford. Is there a way to get 2TB or maybe 1¢/gb on Google Drive? I really love Google Drive, but maybe there other services that offer 1TB+ for a reasonable amount of money? Dropbox seems to max out at 1TB? [more inside]

Why does my macbook think it has more space than it actually does?

I have a macbook with a 500GB hard drive. It has 196GB of free space right now. I just installed Google Drive. The moment set up was done and the drive folder ready to go, Finder's status bar started telling me that I have 140.9TB available. I checked Disk Utility and this is plainly rubbish - it's still at 196GB like it was 15 minutes ago. What gives? Where did the assessment of all that extra space come from, and how do I make it change back?

How can I open a doc with MS Word/Excel in Google Drive via right-click?

At work we use Microsoft Office to create documents and Google Drive to store them. One of my coworkers has Drive set up so that when she right-clicks on a stored document, she is given the option to open it with Word, and the same is true of spreadsheets/Excel. I cannot figure out how to set this up so that I have the same options, and she can't remember how she got it to work that way. Any idea? [more inside]

Help me get Google Drive to connect again

I'm having the hardest time with the Google Drive desktop client on Windows 8.1. It was working fine until a few days ago then it started stalling out during a sync and giving me an "unable to connect" error. I use Drive to upload and store my photographs dumped from my camera and I'm kind of screwed for backup if I can't get Drive to upload my files. [more inside]

Exporting Google Sheets To Flat Image

I'm interested in exporting a Google drive spreadsheet to an image file. I need it to be relatively simple since it will be a process for someone else on a weekly basis. Plug-ins from the Play store are fine, but these are state government machines and are locked down from unauthorized installs.

Can't zoom out on mobile for google sheets

A friend uses a Google Site to host a schedule for a catering company. They make the sheet in Excel, port it to Google Sheets, then link to it from the site. With a recent change within Drive, users have lost the ability to zoom out beyond to less than 100% on the schedule, making it more difficult to navigate. They can zoom in, but can't zoom any further out. Is there anything they can do to get this functionality back?

How can I help my coworkers user Gmail/calendar/etc

My company recently decided to move everyone from Outlook to Google Apps. Now a lot of people who are used to Outlook (and MS Office) in all things are being hit with a new environment. It's going okay, but I've volunteered to give a short presentation on how to make the most of the new tools, since I have a lot of experience using them for my personal stuff. Can folks suggest good online resources either for me to mine for tips, or to hand out to users for their own reference later? [more inside]

Hotkeys for special characters in a document created in Google Drive.

It's got to be easy, right? Using Google Drive to create documents;need to write in Italian and English. There must be an easier way to enter latin characters à è ì etc than going through the insert>special characters>drop down menu. It indicates that I can set up a hotkey with U+ but to no avail. I'm on a Mac

Turn off Google Drive Preview "Feature"

Google Drive (formerly Google Docs) has just unveiled a new "feature," that makes Google Drive open most files in a "preview" mode when you click on them, instead of just opening the file for editing/saving/etc. I would like to turn this "feature" off so that my files actually open. How can I do this? [more inside]

Share Google Drive documents with my group or share the account itself?

I am in an informal workgroup that shares a Google Drive account– that is to say, we all have access to the account along with its password. This arrangement has worked fine. Now I'm starting up a new workgroup with a different set of folks (incidentally, this is not paid work and the folks I'm working with are not colleagues in a strict sense). I created a Google Drive account for this new group and started to mail out the name and password to the group but suddenly thought– "Hey wait, why aren't I just sharing these documents?" I'd be grateful if you could talk me through the relative benefits and disadvantages of both approaches.
