For those of you who are still using Google Drive for Mac and PC, here’s something important you might want to take note of. Google recently announced that they will end support for Google Drive for Mac/PC by 11 December 2017, and it will stop working on 12 March 2018.
Don’t worry though, Google isn’t killing off its cloud storage service completely. Google Drive for Mac/PC will be replaced by the new Backup and Sync app that was launched back in June 2017. As for Business and Enterprise users, you are encouraged to use Drive File Stream, which is available to all G Suite customers from 26 September 2017.
You don’t have to take immediate action now, but of course, it is encouraged that you switch over as soon as you can. Starting from October, Google might start reminding Drive for Mac/PC users that the service is going away. Those of you who are using both Drive File Stream and Backup and Sync on the same device will be prompted to stop syncing My Drive with Backup and Sync in order to save disk space.
