Sometimes your computer will close Google File Stream (G Drive), whether that be after a restart or simply from just coming back to the computer after being idle for an extended period of time. Of course, this hinders your ability to save files to the G Drive.

To relaunch the program, complete these simple steps:

  1. Click the "Start" button in the lower lefthand corner of your screen.
  2. Find "Drive File Stream" from the programs and select it.
  3. Sign in (if necessary) and begin saving files to your G Drive as normal.

If the program still does not open up or "Drive File Stream" does not appear in the list of programs on your system, please open a tech support ticket.
