What's in your Google Drive?


GAFE allows unlimited storage space in our Google Drives! No need to worry about the 1 GB that is allowed on your school drive. Have you taken advantage of the space by uploading your school drive to your Google Drive? (Quick video to see how to move it.) Besides that, you can have 24/7 access to your files. No need to carry around jump drives either!

Why? Is your school drive in the red? No more worrying about how much space you have left. Your Google Drive can support individual files up to 5TB in size! Google comes with security that protects all Drive users. Every file uploaded to Google Drive is encrypted, your files are also encrypted at the Google data centers. This means that any data that you or your students store in your Drive is YOURS! No one can see what's there unless you share it with them.


With all that space . . . sometimes we just need to analyze what's there. It's kind of like an overstuffed closet, every once in a while it just needs to be checked, cleaned and organized. Here's a neat way to peek into your closet: Spanning - Stats for Google Drive.

You can find out:
  • Total number of documents stored
  • Percentage of documents by file type
  • Volume of documents
  • Size of documents
  • Top 10 newest and oldest files
  • Total space used
  • and more . . .
