How do I install and use Google Drive (formerly File Stream)?


Modified on: Fri, Mar 5, 2021 at 11:51 AM

Google Drive is an application that allows you to access all of your Google Drive files on demand, directly from your computer without having to synchronize your entire drive or shared drive (saving storage space on your device). With Google Drive, you can access files in your both own Drive and Shared Drives. With Google Drive, your files are stored on the cloud instead of your computer and any changes you make are automatically synchronized with the cloud for quick easy access from any device that supports Google Drive (including mobile phones, tablets, other computers, or the web).

If you have a university-provided computer, Google Drive should already be installed. If it's not installed or to install for your personal Mac or PC, follow the instructions below.

On macOS, look at the top right of your screen. Your computer's Google Drive folder will contain both your personal Google Drive and any Shared Drives you can access. The only difference between these files and any other file on your computer is that these files are not stored on your computer by default and any changes you make to them will automatically sync with your cloud storage.
