Google G-drive app leak sparks 5GB file vault riddle

Will Gmail giant enlarge docs package?

Application security programs and practises

Scads of rumours are belting through the internet regarding Google's supposed entry into online file storage and sharing next week - giving the likes of Dropbox a heart attack in the process.

Techcrunch got its hands on a Google Drive OS X app, although it's useless at the moment.

A Google systems blog suggested Google Drive is the new name for the document holding pen in Google Docs:

Google Docs is not the right name for an online storage application that lets you upload not just documents, but also music, videos, archives, photos and other files.

Hopefully, the rebranding will bring more free storage, file syncing apps for mobile and desktop and integration with third-party apps.

The G-drive could be introduced this month, work on both Windows and Mac OS, and Android too of course, and the supposed 5GB free capacity would trump the 2GB provided free by Dropbox. ®
