Google Launches Drive File Stream For Enterprise G Suite Users, Google Drive Desktop App Deprecated

Google launched Backup and Sync behind in Jul for unchanging consumers as it transposed Google Drive for Mac/PC. Meanwhile, Google was operative on a standalone customer for fulfilling all a business requirements. Today, after months of testing, a tech hulk has finally launched a Drive File Stream desktop app for Enterprise G Suite users.

Drive File Stream is utterly opposite from Backup and Sync as it does not save information locally. Instead, it streams a information on-demand – including My Drive and Team Drives. Users can still crop a stored files in a Drive File Stream by their internal record browser – Finder (for Mac) and Explorer (for Windows), though files usually get downloaded when we open them. It means that these files stay in your internal record browser, though we will still need download them and afterwards view.

For G Suite users, Backup and Sync still works fine, though Drive File Stream might be a improved choice for enterprises. By regulating Drive File Stream, businesses can reduce down space expenditure on their internal drives and hoop space. It will also minimise a perfect volume of work that goes into downloading files and afterwards syncing them with cloud storage.

With this launch, Google has strictly deprecated a Google Drive app for Mac/PC. Starting from October, users of Google Drive will get warnings, and support will finally finish on Dec 11, 2017. While on Mar 12, 2018, a aged Google Drive will totally close down.

Drive File Stream has been accessible to early adopters given March, and now it is being extended to unchanging G Suite users. It will be adult for squeeze starting from Sep 26, though enterprises can download it currently and capacitate it for their systems.

For a users on Google Drive app for Mac/PC, here is what Google has to say:

A few critical things to note:

  • In October, Drive for Mac/PC users might start saying messages in a product notifying them that Drive for Mac/PC is going away.
  • If a user is using both Drive File Stream and Backup and Sync on a same machine, they’ll be stirred to stop syncing My Drive with Backup and Sync in sequence to save hoop space.
  • Team Drive editors won’t be means to revise their Team Drive files when they’re non-stop in Drive File Stream; they’ll usually be means to perspective them. To revise these files, they’ll need to open them in Drive on a web.
