U-M Google Drive FAQ

U-M Google Drive is a way to access and share all your files and folders, at any time and on any device. 

What is U-M Google Drive?

Think of Google Drive as your personal stash of files and folders that follows you wherever you go - it lets you keep everything and share anything. With Drive, you can access files and folders from a web browser or any device where you've installed Drive.

Your U-M Google Drive is in the cloud, but you can also install the desktop and mobile application to access your files from your computer, smartphone, tablet, or other Android or iOS mobile device, in addition to the online interface at drive.google.com. Drive's built-in sync capability ensures that your files, folders, and Docs are the same on all your devices.

How do I start using Drive?

  1. Visit Google Drive on the web at drive.google.com.
  2. Download and install Drive for your Mac/PC application. This lets you sync files from your hard drive to U-M Google Drive on the web, giving you access to your files on any device, at any time. (NOTE: You might need admin access to your computer to install this application.)
  3. If you'd like to access your U-M Google Drive content on your Android or iOS device, see Google Drive on a mobile device.

How much storage do I have for my Drive files?

Unlimited for native Google files (Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.) and non-Google files.
