Working with Google Drive?

I want to start saving all my stuff online because my computer's not exactly as good as it used to be, and I thought it'd be easier to use. I like Google Drive, but apparently, to save an attachment to drive, you have to save the file to your PC and then upload it. Is there a simpler way? Is there a Chrome extension or something? And how about to upload an attachment from your drive to your email? Let's pretend for some reason my computer doesn't have a drive, so cloud storage is my only possible solution. Yes it's that old.

    Google Drive works best as a backup solution, and not as a storage solution. For the purpose you're looking for I'd recommend using another service.

    I'd recommend using a service such as

    They offer 50GB free storage space, no ads, faster download/upload speed than any other, all your files are encrypted, there's no max upload limit per file and they take your privacy very seriously, unlike Google, which is known to be a sharing private data with NSA, the US National Security Agency. I wouldn't trust putting my files on there.

    You may also consider Copy (, for the online storage as it provides 15 GB of free and secure storage. Also, if you sign up with my referral link (, you will get 5 GB of additional storage. So, 20 GB in total. You may trust them, as they are backed up by Barracuda.
