Access Drive files on Mac/PC faster, using less disk space

Access all of your files (even Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Cloud) stored in Drive directly from your Mac or PC, without using up all your disk space with Drive File Stream. Unlike traditional file sync tools, Drive File Stream doesn't require you to download your files first in order to access them from your computer. Instead, when you need to view or edit a file, it automatically streams from the cloud, on-demand. With Drive File Stream your team will spend less time waiting for files to sync, no time worrying about disk space, and more time being productive.

Get your files in seconds with smarter offline access

With Drive File Stream, files you open are streamed directly from the cloud on-demand. You can also select files or folders that you want to access offline at any time. The files that you are likely to work on from your Mac or PC become available in the background intelligently, making it much quicker to access them later.

Work with all the tools and apps you're used to

With Drive File Stream, you can work with Drive files directly from the apps you're used to, like Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop. Any changes you make to files in those apps are saved automatically to Drive and can be accessed from any of your devices later.
