Google's "Team Drive" are shared spaces where users can easily store documents and access them wherever they are and from any device.

Unlike the documents in "My Drive", those in "Team Drive" belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if a member leaves the team, the documents are not deleted, so that users can continue to share information to work.

The space available for each Team drive is unlimited
