I just upgraded to mac os 11 (Big Sur) and Google Drive File Stream now no longer works. It keeps saying:

 "The system extension required for running Google Drive File Stream needs your approval before it can be loaded.

Please open System Preferences > Security & Privacy pane and allow loading system software from "Google, Inc." Then, restart Drive File Stream.

If you run into problems, restart your computer and try again." 

In Security & Privacy, I go to Privacy->Full Disk Access where everything is checked correctly and looks normal. Nothing I can do here.

I am stumped. and dont know where to go for help.

Thanks
Howard

  1. Open Drive File Stream.
  2. At the top left of your screen, go to   System Preferences  Security & Privacy  General.
  3. Next to "System software from developer 'Google, Inc.' was blocked from loading," click Allow.

Same here, Intel Chip, Big Sur upgraded from Catalina
Google Drive was working ok
Privacy Settings do not show the "Allow apps downloaded from:" message
I did this before for this software and others.

Is there any way to "reset" a possible "not allow" ? Is there any way to force this by terminal ?
