About "My Drive"

“My Drive” is the section of Google Drive on the web that syncs to your computer.

My Drive is the section of Google Drive on the web that automatically syncs files, folders, and Google Docs directly to your Google Drive folder (if you have the Google Drive for your Mac/PC application installed).

Any time you update a file, folder, or Google Doc in My Drive, these changes will be mirrored in the local versions in your Google Drive folder. You can also track activity for these files and folders to get a comprehensive look at the history of changes that have taken place.

My Drive includes:

  • Google Docs that you own
  • Files that you've synced or uploaded
  • Folders that you've created, synced, or uploaded
  • Any shared file that you've added to My Drive from Shared with me or All items
Choose what files to sync between My Drive and the Google Drive folder on your computer.
