Hi.After uploading it into Google drive can I delete it on my phone or comp and still access it in Google drive?
GCFLearnFree.org 5 months ago
You should still be able to access the file, yes. However, since you may not always have an active connection to Google Drive, we can't say whether you should delete those files from your phone or computer. That decision is up to you!

Okay but how do we move a file to a different folder in drive???!!!!
GCFLearnFree.org 6 months ago
Click the file you wish to move, then click the three vertical dots near the top-right corner of the window. (They're below the Settings icon.) Select Move To, then click the arrow in the top-left corner of the window to see your Drive, including any folders you've created. Hope this helps!

I had some songs in a drive, I tried uploading them to google drive through a desktop, but I’m not able to listen to them when I log in on my phone. It says “problem with file” . I just dragged te files into google drive from my computer but doesn’t recognise . What’s going on?

You can upload pictures to Google Drive and then add them to a presentation. We offer Google Slides videos that cover this as well: ruvid.net/group/PLpQQipWcxwt8VFQWcbUcmlHKejroVSzs0. Hope they help!

Man, I been trying to upload videos on my google drive and it fails every time. Is there a way to resume/ continue the upload if it failes or was interrupted? It suck that the damn uploads fail and then I have to start the upload from the beginning.
Sorry, but we're not sure what might be happening here. You may have better luck contact Google directly via its Google Drive help page here: support.google.com/drive/?hl=en#topic=14940

Sorry. I suggest you start on the launching of GDrive from the email. That's what I needed, for a client.
Sorry, but we don't have plans to update this video.

last week I've upgraded because my 15GB was full. I've installed the google drive app so I can work offline and synchronize. Then I copied my files to start synchronisation. But I notice it won't upgrade the new files (red crosses). Google Drive app shows that the reason files can't be uploaded because I haven't enough storage space. Looked in Google Drive storage online. It says I have a 100GB but the diagram to the left shows 15GB fully used.I looks like the upgrade somehow dit not process properly for last weeks still not updating my storage. Anybody an idea what I can do?

We're not sure what would cause that, sorry. We'd recommend contacting Google support, though. Best of luck to you!

how do you pause an upload?!?!?!??
GCFLearnFree.org 2 years ago
While we're not sure about the ability to pause an upload, you should be given the option to cancel it before it's done uploading. We hope this helps!

Lol you can download games with a flash drive, them put them on a slide so that when you go on a chromebook, ( I am in 8th grade and have a chromebook from school and games are banned ) you can go on a game and it won't get blocked!
