Usage statistics and crash reports

Help us prioritize the features and improvements we should work on by enabling the setting for Google Drive to send Google usage statistics and crash reports, which are files that are created when an error happens or when Google Drive unexpectedly crashes.

Mac instructions
  1. Go to the Google Drive menu on your computer.
  2. Select Preferences...
  3. Check the box next to "Send crash reports to Google."
  4. Click Apply changes.

Follow the same steps to disable crash reporting.

PC instructions

When you're installing Google Drive for your PC, select the option to "Send crash reports to Google." It's not possible to change this setting after the install process.

Usage statistics contain aggregated information such as preferences, button clicks, and memory usage. Crash reports contain system information at the time of the error or crash. Crash reports may contain file or folder names, depending on what was happening at the time of the error or crash.
