GDrive: Google's Plan To Store All Your Files

Google has revealed more plans for its "GDrive" online storage service, VentureBeat reports. A product and category description was found earlier today by blogger Brian Ussery in a piece of code found in the Google Pack software bundle. Put together, the two descriptions read: "GDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music and documents. GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device -- be it from your desktop, web browser or cellular phone."

Photos and documents, sure, but music? Google hasn't touched music before. Could GDrive be the ultimate way to back up your music collection? Or maybe the search giant wants it to become your music collection's home? In the second description, Google does mention that you'll be able to access your files from anywhere on any device. Imagine going to a friend's house and having access to your music library through the Web.

By the way, VentureBeat points out that the second description also talks about desktop access separately from browser access. This means Google will probably have a desktop client for GDrive, which makes sense for users who want to do auto-backups of important documents. Now, the question is, when will GDrive be launched?
