October 4, 2017 - Google Drive Gets Easier with Drive File Stream

September 21, 2017

Google’s Drive File Stream is a new desktop application that allows you to quickly access all of your Google Drive files on demand, directly from your computer, meaning you use almost none of your hard drive space and spend less time waiting for files to sync. It will look and function similar to a mapped network drive on your Mac/PC.

 

With Drive File Stream, you can:

Quickly see all your Google Drive files in Finder/Explorer.
Browse and organize Google Drive files without downloading all of them to your computer.
Choose which files or folders you'd like to make available offline.
Open files in common apps like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop.

Please visit the Drive File Stream document for more details.
