New Drive File Stream settings for your organization’s deployment 2 años ago

Drive File Stream lets you stream files directly from the cloud to your computer and select files to be available offline. Based on your feedback we’re adding several features to Drive File Stream which will help you:

  • Control when changes are synced to Google Drive (all end users)
  • Customize the cache location (admins only)
  • Limit the bandwidth used (admins only)
  • Customize drive letter or mount point (admins only)

For more details on these features and how to use them, see below.

Control when changes are synced to Google Drive

End users can now pause Drive File Stream syncing. While paused, Drive File Stream will not upload local changes to Google Drive, and new versions of files made available offline will not download.

To pause syncing, open the Drive File Stream menu and click More > Pause Syncing.

Customize the cache location

Admins can now customize the content cache location for Drive File Stream to any directory on a connected APFS, HFS+, or NTFS file system.

For details, see our Help Center on how to configure Drive File Stream.

Limit the bandwidth used

Admins can now limit the bandwidth of Drive File Stream for uploads and downloads.

For details, see our Help Center on how to configure Drive File Stream.

Customize drive letter or mount point

In a previous release, we added a feature that allows Admins to customize the default letter drive on Windows, the mount point on macOS, and proxy settings. These configurations can be set at the user or host-wide level, and persist when Drive File Stream restarts.

For details, see our Help Center on how to configure Drive File Stream.
