Middlebury Google Apps: Drive = Documents

Over the next several weeks, Google is releasing Google Drive — the newest member of the Google Apps suite, where you can keep everything and share anything. Google Drive replaces and enhances what you know today as your Google documents list.

What is Google Drive? 

With Google Drive, you can securely upload any file or folder to the web and access the most up-to-date versions of those files from anywhere. You can access Google Drive in your web browser and can also download the Drive application to your Mac, PC, Android or iOS devices to seamlessly access files across any of these devices. You will have 5GB of included storage space for your Google Drive. For more information on Google Drive functionality, please see the product overview page or visit drive.google.com/start.

How will Google Drive be made available to Middlebury Google Apps?

Google Drive will become available on an opt-in basis over the next several weeks. Because Google is releasing Google Drive gradually, some users may not be able to get started immediately, but you can request to be notified when Google Drive is ready for you to opt in.

In the coming months, Google Drive will become the default and will replace the documents list as the way for users to access their files and documents. At this time, all users will have access to the desktop sync clients and mobile applications.

How is the Google Drive online interface different from my current Google documents list?

The Google Drive online interface looks similar to today’s Google documents list with a number of improvements, including new ways to organize your files and enhanced search functionality.
