Google Drive'ing

A Short Tutorial on Google Drive

The first step to using Google Drive is to sign in to Google.


The office can supply you with a shared user id and password. If you have your own Google account, you can use that (just send me an email and I will share the folders with you).


After you sign in, click on the "Drive" link at the top of the screen.


The Google Drive is currently sharing 3 folders. Click on the folder labelled "BigIron Shared".


Drag your file into the shared folder.


If you don't like dragging files, you can click on the upload button and select the files to upload.


A prompt will appear asking if you want to upload and share the file. Click on the button labelled "Upload and share".


The file will upload. You will receive a confirmation when the upload is completed.


You should now see your file is available within the Google Drive folder.



Optionally, you can download and install the Google Drive software. This software will create a folder on your machine which will synchronize files between your machine and the internet.
