Status Alerts

Google Drive app Alert: The Google Drive app for PC and Mac is being shut down in March 2018.

Important: Even though the old app for PC, Mac, Android and iOS will be going away you will still be able to access Drive through the web client just as you can now. No data will be lost.

Note: Google will end support for the aging Google Drive/Sync app for PC, Mac and smart phones and tablets on December 11, 2017 but the app won't actually be shut down completely until March 12, 2018.

Not to worry though, Google has already released two new tools for backing up your data and/or accessing files in the cloud. There is the Backup and Sync app which is a consumer app, and enterprises like ours that use GSuite for Education or Business have Drive File Stream which saves space on your local drive while providing access to all of your Google Drive files on demand directly from your computer.

IT will be providing more information about this soon.
