    Default Drive vs Google Plus

    I have Drive storage from my Picasa subscription. I auto upload all my photos to Google Plus at original size which counts against my Drive storage. Is there any difference between storing my photos in Google Plus vs Drive?? Or is it the same thing?? I downloaded the Drive app and it says I'm using a large percentage of my storage despite having no files in Drive.

    Gmail and all full - size photos both utilize the same storage as Google Drive. You can have unlimited "standard size" photos in Google+.

    Ok. Is there any advantage to actually putting my photos in Goolge Drive versus just having them in Google Plus??

    If you have both accounts, not really. It's slightly easier to e-mail photos via drive, but it's much smarter to make albums and send a link to the album. If you keep things sorted into lots of folders with sub folders, that could be one. Drive supports that, but G+ does not. Some employers security policies will block social networking but still allow Google Drive access, so if that's a consideration.. but otherwise, Google+ does a better job of displaying and allowing for resharing, editing, etc.

    I think that the free is limited to 2048 in the longest dimension

    No limitations in your personal MEGA cloud (http://mega.co.nz). 50 GB of free storage and full end-to-end encryption = no NSA snooping.

    I like Mega, but their speeds are really slow for me.

    I have the same question. I think it's easier to share photos via drive.

    Prefer Drive as well. Also don't have need to worry if I accidentally changed the share settings like on Google+.
    I use office suite pro and sharing via drive is integrated.
