Google Drive File Stream - Coming Soon!!

Google Drive File Stream is a service provided by Google that allows you to access, save and work on files from Google Drive on your computer. It looks like a USB drive on your computer and it works like one - except you don’t need to carry anything around with you.

There are many benefits to using File Stream, including the unlimited amount of storage available and the ability to access your files anywhere at anytime. File Stream is being implemented across the Trust over the next few weeks, and you will be notified when it is ready for use at your school.

There are two training videos available to help you get started using Google Drive File Stream. The first video is aimed at anyone that isn’t yet familiar with Google Drive, this video shows you how easy it is to use this new drive opposed to using your memory stick - the process of saving files is pretty much the same!

The second part video shows how an existing user of Google Drive can use File Stream together - for en easier and accessible way to store and retrieve their files.

File Stream is a very useful service that will hopefully bridge the gap between a team of people that have different ways of working. Some staff already use Google Drive and share files and folders and others still use Staff Shared. Google Drive File Stream is a stepping stone between the two, as it means that people still used to storing files on external or PC drives can still follow the same procedure, yet they are storing their files in a place that it accessible to everyone in the team and can be accessed at home too.
