A long time ago, Google launched a file storage and sync service called Google Drive. This service will make it easier for users to store files or data in the cloud, edit documents, presentations and spreadsheets, and share the stored files with others. Google offers its users only 15 GB of storage space. This storage space is shared between the three most commonly used services, namely Google Drive, Google+ Photos, and Gmail. But, once Google Drive reaches its maximum limit, it becomes so much necessary for the users to move stuff from one Google Drive to another Google Drive account in a trouble free manner.
