I see several benefits: Primarily, if you have multiple computers, your two (or more) instances of Google Drive will automatically sync up in the background. It would save you a step. Once the GDrive client is installed, you don't interact with it anymore. You simply manage the files in the Google Drive folder as you would in any other folder. If you ...

Did you empty the Trash in your Google Photos? They'll automatically go in 60 days, but you can force them to be deleted permanently before that. I expect that items in your Trash will continue to count against your limit. The same should be true of your Google Drive Trash as well as the Trash label in Gmail.

I just tried this with a bookmark named 'Bookmark9/10'. It didn't work. Looking at the header example, I realized that isn't what was needed.

If you upload a PDF to Google drive and convert it to a Google doc (or right click and open with Google Docs instead of Google Drive Viewer) you can add comments in collaboration with others (in the same way as with a Google doc) by pressing ctrl+alt+M or selecting text and right clicking.

I noticed one feature in Google Drive that is relevant here: Link lookup by text: you type in a text for the link, then you select it and press Ctrl+K. A dialog appears with two fields, and the field for the URL has drop-down list with suggestions that match the text. So this allows emulate easily some wiki-like functionality.

Anytime I go to make changes to an uploaded document, it saves the changes as a "new" document, it seems? Happy to take your word for that.
