Google Drive File Stream:
What and Why?
Google is replacing their desktop Google Drive Application with a new one called: Google Drive File Stream. This process will replace your old version with the new one!
Google Drive has become a great place for our users to store all of their Google or Non-Google files. They are safe, secure and easy to access from many devices. However, Google Drive (online) is NOT what we’re talking about here, only the application on your computer that synchronizes a Google Drive folder with the online Google Drive. The new app works just like the old one, yet it will no longer store and syncing all of that same data on your computer, freeing up huge amounts of space. It also allows you to access the new “Team Drives” we’re putting in place.
It is IMPORTANT to note that the old application will be shut down in March. If you like to use this desktop application it is critical you perform this upgrade before then. IT will force this update before March Break.
