Google, very recently, came up with a service that made document editing in Microsoft Office (2003 – 2007), a more cohesive and collaborative task. Cloud Connect, as it was named made it possible for the users to edit their documents with their mates at work. Now, the search giant is back on the scene with a ‘User Managed Storage’ for its App users.

According to a recent post on Google Small Business Blog, the makers intend to support their users to move onto the cloud. Hence, the decision to introduce them (read: Google App users) to the ‘User Managed Storage’ system. However, this system cannot be pooled or transferred to another Google Apps user account, adds the blog.

This service, however, hasn’t been extended to the Gmail account holders who recently bore the brunt of Gmail's disappearing act . The search giant claims to have restored all the accounts.
