Google Drive’s web interface gets updated with better file downloads, and more!

Google Drive Poster

Google Drive is getting some improvements today. The update will affect its web interface. Even if you’re primarily using Drive on Android, you’ll end up visiting in the browser on occasion. When you do, you’ll see a refined User Interface and much better file downloads.

Here’s what Google says is coming in the update:

– You can now compress and download Drive items into multiple 2GB zip files. Files have an improved name structure, for example: drive-download-20160516T125832Z.zip for the first file and drive-download-20160516T125832Z-2.zip for subsequent archives.

-Better Google Forms handling.

-Empty folders are now included in the zip.

The 2GB size limit on large downloads was a real pain if you needed to grab a lot of files. Now, Drive will split downloads into multiple archives. You’ll also get empty folders included when you download an entire directory, thus preserving the hierarchy you’ve set up.

Password-cracking software uses one of three approaches: intelligent guessing, dictionary attacks, and brute-force automated attacks that try every possible combination of characters. Given enough time, the automated method can

Re-Architect

This methodology requires the most effort to implement but it results in the most optimised recurring cost and will provide the best scalability for apps. This involves re-adapting the code of applications and the heavy use of SAAS solutions in order to replace existing hosted applications.

Re-Platform

This method utilizes the power of  PAAS services, like transferring a database to an as-a-service model,  the use of containers for some apps or the use of network/security functions as a service. Greater scalability and lower cost of operation is achieved.
