If you’ve ever lost files on your computer (due to a hard drive crash) or lost a USB flash drive with data on it, then Google File Stream can save you time and effort. Montclair State University has enabled Google Drive File Stream to the list of available services under the University’s Google Apps for Education offering.
In order to use this service, download and install the desktop application on your PC or Mac. Google Drive File Stream allows you to access and work directly on files within Google Drive (and, if applicable, Team Drives) directly from your computer’s file browser (File Explorer on PC, Finder on Mac).
Instead of storing files on your computer, files are stored in the cloud, and any changes you make are automatically synced within the cloud for quick, easy access from anywhere you have an internet connection; no downloading and uploading required!
Key Features Include:
- Free up hard drive disc space
- Files accessible anywhere via Google Services
- A more secure location within the cloud to store your files rather than on your local hard drive
