How to try Drive File Stream
  1. Start Backup and Sync if it is not running.
  2. On the “Settings” tab of the Backup and Sync preferences window, uncheck “Open Backup and Sync on system startup”. Click OK.
  3. Quit Backup and Sync.
  4. Rename your Google Drive folder to something like “Google Drive (not syncing)” as a reminder that you should not change the files in this folder. This will also differentiate it from the Drive File Stream folder, which is also called “Google Drive”.
  5. Download Drive File Stream (Windows, macOS) and install.
