Google Drive Will Die in March, Backup and Sync And Drive File Stream Will Replace It

Everyone including myself rely on google drive to sync and save my data almost sub-consciously and the latest update on the subject is surely going to shuffle things a bit.

Yesterday, Google announced that the company will pull off the support for the Drive app from December 11th, 2017 and will shut it down completely on March, 12th next year. However, the services and function will continue to work under new names and with few tweaks in it.

The tech giant is transmuting the Google Drive into two services  which depends whether you are a drive consumer or an enterprise operating on G-suite. Backup and Sync will be available for the normal consumers using Drive on PC, Mac, and phones. While  business users can avail the Drive File Stream (DFS)  in G-suit.

Three months from now you can replace the Drive with new apps to maintain your data on cloud service of Google. Both the Backup and Sync and Drive File stream will work similar to Google Drive but with some additional l features that you should know.

Difference Between Backup and Sync And Drive File Stream

Both the apps will serve the same purpose of saving data to the cloud, but with a major difference of streaming attribute. Drive File Stream will stream all your cloud-based files on the PC without copying them. Backup and Sync on the other hand will make local copies on your desktop and create a backup of those files on the cloud. To have a backup of all your videos and photos, you need to use the Backup and Sync service.

Backup and Sync is more likely to create for the consumer drive users, currently using the Google Drive to store their data.

Crux

The incoming changes from the Google may be a bit tech savvy to get at once, but if you are a consumer drive user, there is not much to adapt to other than the new name of the app. However, the business users will have to choose one service out of these two considering the new file streaming advantage in DFS.

An important point to remember is that while working on the PC with the access to G-suite, you can use both the services.
