"Making Files Available Offline" Constantly 0 Recommended Answers 34 Replies 401 Upvotes

I have a Google Pixel XL Phone.

Since the most recent update, it keeps saying, "Making 87 Files Available Offline" with a moving progress bar.

The number never goes down, and the only metaphors for how quickly it's draining my battery are unprintable.

I've had those files available offline for over a year and never seen this notification.

What should I do?

I would like to know too. My phone (LG Stylo 2) keeps giving the notification that "All 67 files are available offline." and it keeps coming back no matter how many times I swipe it away and if I leave it alone it disappears every few seconds in a flash then comes back. Almost destroyed my phone in rage. Turned notifications off and it STILL keeps coming back.

You likely selected multiple files at once, so it's going to give the number of files (P.S: It takes longer to do an action with multiple files, If that's what your saying.)

I'd like to know too. Mine is making 880 files available offline and I'm afraid it's eating into my data usage as well as draining my battery life. Those files were already made offline over a year ago as well.

Same here. I'm not sure if there was an update that kick this off I don't recall making any changes at all and suddenly this started happening on my phone and runs constantly.

Same here! It's only 6 files for me, but the constant notification is driving me insane. The thing is, though, I've turned off offline files on all of them, and they still keep coming back! What the hell?

This is the same for me. I have specifically disabled offline docs as i never wanted to use this feature, yet the notification continues to show up if i launch the docs app. My only recourse is to restart my device.
