Working with File Versions in Google Drive

Google Drive can be used to create Google-format items but can also be used to store files (and with your Stony Brook University Google Account, you have unlimited storage space). One feature for non-Google format files (for example, Microsoft Word files) stored in Drive is versioning. That is, Google Drive will store some previous versions of a file, which you can download or choose to keep forever.

If you've ever wanted to recover a previous version of a file, this feature of Google Drive can be very handy.
