Google launches new Drive File Stream application to replace Google Drive
Posted by Tony Hendrix on October 10, 2017

Google recently launched Drive File Stream, a new desktop application that allows you to quickly access all of your Google Drive files on demand, directly from your computer. This means you use almost none of your hard drive space and spend less time waiting for files to sync. Google Drive File Stream will replace the classic Google Drive desktop application. Google will end support for Google Drive starting on Dec. 11, 2017 and it will shut it down completely on March 12, 2018. See http://wmich.edu/google/availableapps/drive for Google Drive File Stream instructions.
