There are 2 ways to access Drive files and keep them in sync on all your devices.
Drive File Stream is best for most organizations. This application lets you stream My Drive and Team Drive files directly from the cloud, which in turn:
- Frees up disk space and network bandwidth
- Decreases sync time
- Minimizes the amount of company data stored on users’ hard drives
You can also make Drive files available for offline access. These cached files sync back to the cloud when you’re online, so the latest version is available on all your devices.
Backup and Sync is our consumer sync client, but organizations can use it, too. (The earlier sync client, Drive for Mac/PC, is no longer supported. It will begin to shut down for some domains starting on May 12, 2018. The shutdown process will roll out gradually.) With Backup and Sync, all your Drive content is stored locally.
