Exploring Google Drive

By | January 19, 2020

Your document list is now a part of Google
Drive. Just like before, you can access your files
all in one place, and easily share them with others. Google Drive comes with a desktop application
for Mac and PC that adds a Drive folder on your computer. Anything you drag into this folder syncs automatically, with Google Drive on the web, and across your devices. You can also still create new documents, presentations
and spreadsheets. And now, you can use other applications too. We’ve added a new grid view so you can see
files at a glance. And, the left hand navigation has been simplified. ‘My Drive’ includes all the files and folders
that you’ve created, uploaded or moved there. This folder syncs with Google Drive on your
desktop. If you want to sync files that others have
shared with you to your desktop, simply drag them from ‘Shared with me’ to ‘My Drive’. Click ‘More’ for other ways to view your files, Like ‘Activity’, which includes everything
that has recently been edited by you or others. This was called ‘Home’ before. To quickly find a file, search and filter
by file type or owner. You can even search text within scanned documents
and image files without any text at all. With Google Drive, all your stuff is together
in one place. Upgrade today by visiting drive.google.com.

    If I create a html file and share it with a public url I don't get the html file, but the edit page for that file. Still using Dropbox for that reason…

  8. TeamBaldwin Summer2014 Post author

    Hi! I wondered that, myself. I've started with Google Docs and set a couple of html files as browsable, so I could use them as my own link repository, but I was wondering what would happen once I convert to Google Drive. Thanks for posting that!

    Hi, again. I'm reading more about this feature that I don't want to give up. Here's a link I stumbled upon that discusses web access as a lightweight webpage that can be viewed so long as the URL is used. Hope that helps. I'm not sure what it says yet, though, because I'm still researching this.

  10. TeamBaldwin Summer2014 Post author

    Here's how I think it's meant to work: in visibility options, select 'Anyone with a link' instead of 'Public on the Web. ' I haven't tried that yet, because I haven't converted my 'docs' over to 'drive'. But, I see that Google is beginning to phase out 'docs' so I'll have to find out how it works, for me. Hope that helps.

    I don't know how to respond only that it makes me feel as though each step forward Google makes me feel two steps back. Close the dame door. Beginner computer classes is worth my while.I don't want to be left behind. Go Google

    Coming soon to Google Drive. The ability to actually delete files without them reappearing in your drive! Stay tuned for the update. We push them out slowly…and our release dates are horrible even though were one of the largest tech companies in the world. Anyways… enjoy it.

    Dear google. Why, oh why is google drive so bad? I wanted to upload 3 gb of information … after the computer was on THE WHOLE DAY it only managed to upload about 1,5. it's super slow, and my connection is pretty fast too (not to mention whenever I wanted to upload something wifi went down). So after a week or so it still couldn't get past 2 gb, so I deleted it (thinking my 2gb would remain in docks) and decided I'll just use google docks instead. Oh wait I can't any more and so lost 2gb

    Is there any way you can backup only the files that you changed automatically when you shutdown your computer?

    I have one big folder called DATA (including subfolders) — when I drag it to Google drive, does it only copy any updated files?

  30. gobbisharon Post author

    Beware….do a search about google drive creating MULTIPLE copies of the same files…..

  31. dooseyboy Post author

    i dragged a PDF file into my application and it didn't sync at all.
    it may have someting to do with my university's internet but i don't know.

    So I'm a long-time Google Docs user an fan…and I noticed that when switching to Drive, it said I get 5GB of storage free. Does this not include documents created in Google Drive (as like before) or is this a new limit?

    Wait is it just me or does she really pronounce folder as "foader"???

    the government of every great civilization has kept track of their citizens. Now we are finding out that Google's founders have former CIA backgrounds. We are being tracked and just need to be comfortable with it – or stay in the dark ages. I'm not happy about it, but you can either fight the system or go with the flow. Who are you going to fight with anyway? A network server? You cant sue the US government BTW. Don't worry, its its not google its credit card companies or Microsoft, etc etc

    I noticed that, too. I decided to find it "cute".

  41. xxJETSETxx Post author

    Like the changes, hate the name change. How unintuitive to have to look for "drive" when I'm thinking about DOCUMENTS.

  42. Sern Post author

    It's under the discretion of a business in regard to what services they choose to provide or withhold, in most cases. I also disagree with Google's move to censor firearms and ammo related search results and/or links through their 'shopping' feature. It makes 0 sense to me. I am just glad that they did not do the same for their regular search engine results. But if they had, I'd just use another search engine. There are many times we disagree with a business tactic but continue to buy from them.

    I wish Google could come up with a navigation system that didn't take say, completely around the block to get to a place that is less than a block in front of you. Especially for those of us that are driving a big rig, it does at times cause major problems.
