Google, the internet giant, has provided us with countless services to simplify our tasks on the net. Services that go from email to storing our photos or documents.
One of these free services is Google Drive, which allows us to store and access or create documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more, it allows us to securely open or modify them from any device, this is because it contains cloud storage. When using cloud storage, it is stored securely in Google’s world-class data centers. Data is encrypted both in transit and at rest, and if you choose to access these files offline, the information is stored on your device. However, if such cookies remain inactive on the Service for more than two years (24 months), Google can delete Content stored in that service. And if we exceed our two-year storage limit, Google can delete everything we have in Gmail, Drive, and photos.

According to the internet giant, Drive will stop working on computers running Windows 8/8.1, Windows Server 2012 and all 32-bit versions of Windows starting from August this year. According to the company, what is required is to improve the performance of the platform as a whole, and strive to provide users with better overall platform performance.

naturally! For this reason, we recommend that you do not worry, because the same company (Google) has announced the way in which you can perform this procedure and the possibility that your files and documents will not disappear permanently, because You will be able to continue to use the cloud storage service.
The way is that users of this service and those using the Windows operating system have to Upgrade to Windows 10 (64-bit) or to a later release before the aforementioned deadline, which is before August of this year.
And for users with an unsupported Windows operating system, they stand a chance to reach to Google Drive during Compatible internet browser. Because Drive works with the two most recent versions of the following browsers:
