Say goodbye to Google Drive (it’s shutting down for good)

September 8, 2017

Big news: Google recently announced that it will no longer support Google Drive on December 11th 2017. It officially shuts down on March 12th 2018.

Beginning in October, current Mac/PC Drive app users will be notified and encouraged to download and use Google’s new product, Backup and Sync, instead.

According to the Google blog, Backup and Sync is a “simpler, speedier and more reliable way to protect the files and photos that mean the most to you.” It’s basically Google Drive and Google Photos combined into one tool.

You can download Backup and Sync here.
