Get started with Team Drives
Overview: What can you do with Team Drives?
Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device.
Unlike files in My Drive, files in a Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.
Not sure whether to use My Drive or a Team Drive?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are the files of interest to most or all members of a particular project team?
- Do the files share a consistent theme?
If you answered "yes" to both questions, creating a new Team Drives is a good idea. If the files are for a variety of projects, create multiple Team Drives. For a comparison of My Drive and Team Drives, see Differences between My Drive and Team Drives.
