Google Drive Update

Google Drive Sync will no longer be supported starting on December 11, 2017, and it will shut down completely on March 12, 2018. You may start seeing messages when you log in notifying of the upcoming changes. It is acceptable to take no action at this point.  Client Services will have more information distributed soon regarding the best procedure to follow to handle this change with Drive.
Google Drive will be replaced by Drive File Stream, a new application for your Mac or PC. Use Drive File Stream to access all your Google Drive files from your computer while using less disk space and decreasing sync time.
How does it work?
With Drive File Stream, you can:
  • Quickly see all your Google Drive files in Finder/Explorer (including Team Drives).
  • 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.
More detailed information to follow soon.
