Google Drive is a cloud-based file storage and sharing application that is part of the Google Apps for Education suite. All Smith students, faculty, and staff are allocated unlimited storage for their Google Drive files, Smith Mail, and Picasa web albums. (For information about maximum allowable file sizes, click here.) For guidance on HIPAA compliancy and file storage, please contact email@example.com.
Sharing and collaborating
Google Drive document-sharing is a powerful tool. You can easily share your files and images with others without having to email them as attachments. You can give others rights to edit individual files or a whole folder, and even share files with non-Smith, non-Google users. However, you cannot transfer file or folder ownership to anyone who does not have an "@smith.edu" email address. For more information, click here.
