How do I move files to Google Drive?
- Files can be moved from the U or P Drives to Google Drive in a browser window. Step-by-step instructions can be found on Migrating from U Drive to Google My Drive.
ITS is excited to announce we are adopting Google My Drive as the College’s personal file storage solution beginning today. We know many already are using it and so we will be phasing out U Drive storage by August 2020. Google My Drive has a number of helpful features including the ability to easily share files, to integrate with other G Suite products like Gmail and Calendar, and to access files from nearly any device.
For more information about the differences between the drives, see Google Shared drives and My Drive Differences.
Drive File Stream is a tool that allows you to access and open your Google Drive files and folders directly on your computer. Instructions for accessing and/or installing File Stream can be found on the Getting Started with File Stream help page.
We will begin engaging the community to migrate P Drive contents to Shared drives on Google Drive sometime later in 2020. In you have already moved your P Drive contents, or are interested in moving your P Drive contents this spring, please complete this form.
