Why use Drive File Stream?

Users of some campus computer labs or other resources, such as ArgoApps, have virtually nowhere to save files. Google Drive can be accessed from anywhere and provides users a large storage quota to store many files. Once configured on ArgoApps, Drive File Stream automatically attaches your Google drive to whatever virtual application or desktop you use - each time you log in!

You may have to perform the setup instructions each time you access a computer.

Upon logging in, you may be prompted to log into Google Drive File Stream. If not, open 'Drive File Stream' from the start menu or programs folder.

  1. Enter your e-mail address like you're signing into Gmail.
