I can't run Google File stream at all. Whenever I open it it says 'Drive File Stream encountered a problem and has to stop'. I have tried deleting it, deleting the cache, reinstalling it and it still doens't work. Even when I turn my mac of and reset PRAM.

I am using Mojave 10.14.4. There was a similar thread thread here: https://support.google.com/a/thread/4093970?hl=en

But this seems to be concerned with a beta version of Mac Os. I am not using Beta.

Please help. I literally can not work without it! Thanks in advance

Same for me. Someone please help urgently. 

This happened 2 days back only Before that it was working just fine. I am not sure if something was updated by Apple or Google but this needs to be fixed ASAP
