How to try Drive File Stream
- Start Backup and Sync if it is not running.
- On the “Settings” tab of the Backup and Sync preferences window, uncheck “Open Backup and Sync on system startup”. Click OK.
- Quit Backup and Sync.
- 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”.
- Download Drive File Stream (Windows, macOS) and install.
