Recently google pushing those who still having the old Google Drive Sync installed user to switch to their brand new application – Google Drive File Stream, because Support for Drive Sync already ended back in December, but the APIs that allow the tool to continue to function will be shut down on May 12, 2018. But some of the user may be afraid they will lose their data once they upgrade, so here I’ve compile a to do step by step for you to follow.  

1). Login to you Google Drive via any web browser, double check does your files are updated.

2). Disconnect the Google Drive Sync app by log out from the program.

3). Uninstall Google Drive Sync

4). Double check your files still on you Google Drive via any web browser.

5). Delete your Drive Sync local folder or rename it to backup or move it to external hard disk.

6). Install Google Drive File Stream.

Difference between Google Drive Sync and Google Drive File Stream.

Drive Sync copies files and keeps them synced to your computer constantly, taking up a potentially significant amount of space.

File Stream on the other hand, creates a false drive and populates it with stub files to make the file system navigable, but takes up very little space until you actually try to use a file. Once you attempt to use a file, Google Drive File Stream downloads it and makes it available to your application.

  7. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working
    with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable

  8. Computers are smaller and do amazing things. I remember as a kid when we got our Commodore 64. I thought that was awesome. Come to think of it. It didn’t do much. Now you can do just about anything. Now you even have tablets to be able to draw on the computer. That opened a whole new section to my art business. You can take them anywhere. I love that idea with baseball. Our son played competitive baseball and it’s great to be able to keep up with the brackets and schedules for his games with a computer in the room. Instead of having to actually go to the field in person to see it. I can even get some work done during some quiet time here and there.

  9. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit
    and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more
    than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
