Drive Stream re-syncing files 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 3 Upvotes

For some reason, I think after each time I restart but not 100% sure yet, Google Drive Stream starts re-syncing files that it already has on the computer.
Restarting Drive Stream, pausing and unpausing syncing doesn't seem to sort things out.
I have the latest version of Drive Stream. I have tried removing/reinstalling and disconnecting/reconnecting my account. It just seems to keep happening.

Any ideas why or how I can find out?

A similar experience seems to have started happening to me, too. I'm on a Mac PowerBook Pro, OS 10.14.6. 

Here's what I experience:
When I restart my computer, I've lost access to ALL files on Google Drive File Stream. Once I go to my Applications folder and launch Google Drive File Stream, it takes a bit, but everything re-syncs, my files open just fine, my blood pressure drops, and all is well with the world. ;)

Here's what I've done today:
I just checked the Login Items in my system prefs (System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items), and Google Drive File Stream wasn't listed. I added it and hopefully that fixes the issue, since this means that it'll essentially automate what I was doing manually.

My lingering concern is what happens if I restart my computer when I'm not connected to the internet and am relying on accessing files that have been saved to my computer but have not yet been synced to the Cloud. If I get some time in my schedule over the holidays, I might try to test a few different scenarios to see what happens. In the meantime, I'm hoping that the steps I did will help.
