What is Drive File Stream?

Stream

File Stream is a new and improved way to access files in Google Drive from your computer. Files appear locally on your computer but don’t take up space on your hard drive. You can optionally “pin” files or folders so that they’re available even when you’re offline (“pinned” files and folders do use up space on your hard drive).


File Stream also supports Team Drives, a new group collaboration feature for Drive (for more information about Team Drives see this).

Who should use it?

Anyone with a Reed Google account can use File Stream. In particular, we recommend faculty and staff who are using the Google Drive client (which is now going away) to switch to File Stream.

What about Backup and Sync?

Drive File Stream was designed for Gsuite Education and Business users. Backup and Sync is intended for consumers although organizations such as Reed can use it too. Backup and Sync allows you to back up your local files to Google Drive and to sync copies of files from Google Drive to your computer. For students who are in need of a backup solution, Backup and Sync may be a good option.
