Introduction:

The purpose of the blog is to introduce and to show you how to use the Autodesk Drive to upload and share data.

History:

The A360 Drive has been around for quite some time and is being replaced by the Autodesk Drive. The A360 Drive purpose is to upload data via mobile apps like AutoCAD Mobile and then share with collaborators.

From May 2020 the existing data on A360 drive will become read only and later I think the drive will be discontinued. If you have data on this platform you can visit https://a360.autodesk.com/ and log in with your Autodesk ID and download the data( and perhaps upload it again on the new Autodesk Drive. )
