One important difference between Google Drive and OneDrive (Microsoft) to note is that OneDrive limits file sizes to 2gb.

I like this Drive now that I have corrected it. (see my comment prior) 15GB is nothing to scoff at. Dropbox doesn't give you that. I give it 5 stars for that.

I don't like Google but the Google Drive is very good. Mostly fast and you get a huge 15GB for free.

We're replacing Dropbox with Google Drive for internal file sharing. I wish sharing files was a bit more simple with just a simply URL to copy to your clipboard. Pasting things into the sharing form also seems to not be possible.

Must copy/move everything into its dedicated folder, can't follow symlinks. I won't screw up my folder hierarchy. Useless shite.

Hah, it is simply a lie when Google says that Google Drive is 32-bit compatible. It crashes the instant it is launched on my 32-bit iMac with OS X 10.6.8. You cannot even Force Quit it so you must run Activity Monitor to quit the process. Every version since v1.13 released last December is incompatible with 32-bit machines. Google is well aware of the incompatibility and has promised a fix over and over but never produces one. Get DropBox. It works flawlessly.

I just downloaded this version, launched it, and it told me I was running an out of date version and get the latest version!

Yeah RavenNevermore,
I got the same thing plus it keeps saying on each version that my Google folder is missing.
You wouldn't happen to know where to find my folder, would you?

The Google Drive folder should be at the root of your Home directory.

Thanks. I did find it, but I'll tell ya, Google Drive instructions are not very user friendly, or my mind is getting worse than I thought.
Nice to get 15 GB free, but Dropbox is easier to use.
When a cloud drive like Google Drive isn't explained properly, it scares me.
Then the fact that we can't get the newest version, really makes me wonder if this drive is safe to use.

I'm current running version 1.16.7009.9618 of Google Drive. This version on MacUpdate appears to be an old version.

Me, too. It says the folder is missing yet it is there. But how do I connect the folder?

I already have 1.16.7009.9618 and I haven't downloaded anything explicitly. Apparently, the Google Updater has taken care of it for me.

When I attempt to locate the folder,I point to my home folder and the Google Drive within it and the menu says it is not my Google Drive folder.It says it has the same name but it is not my Google Drive folder.so exactly where is it?

This is what I did to alleviate the problems with Google Drive. I enumerated those problems in a previous post. First I used App Cleaner to remove the existing Drive. Then I used Find any File to find those folders that App Cleaner might have missed.Then I downloaded Google Drive and put it in My applications Folder. All is good now!

1.16.6866.4367 says "You are running an outdated version of Google Drive. Please use the latest version available." and won't run. Grrr. This is why I keep old copies of stuff.

I think something must have gone wrong. MacUpdate is pointing to an old version. Newest version is 1.16.7009.9618 (as of July 4th, 2014), which is what I’m running, but I can’t find that version on Google Downloads anymore.

The listing has been updated on MacUpdate. Use MacUpdate Desktop to 1-click update Google Drive and see what's new.

This old version updated on it's own somehow. Maybe when I went to the online site and it somehow knew that my version was old and then updated it from some secret hiding place. :)Ha ha weird!
