Google drive lets you share your files and folders with exactly whom you want at whatever level of access you choose.
No, it does not.
Baker College Best Practices for Google Drive:
We are excited to announce Google Drive, a new way to access and share files and folders, at any time and on any device.
When you delete a document from the Drive it goes to the trash. To permanently delete the document you will need to empty your trash.
Think of Google Drive as your personal stash of files and folders that follows you wherever you go - it lets you keep everything and
share anything. With Google Drive, you can access files, folders, and Google Docs from a web browser or any device you've installed
your Google Drive.
Your Google Drive is in the cloud, but you can also install the desktop and mobile application to access your files from your
computer, smartphone, tablet, or other Android or iOS mobile device, in addition to the online interface at drive.google.com. Google
Drive's built-in sync capability ensures that your files, folders, and Google Docs are the same on all your devices.
For Baker College users, we provide you with the standard 30 GB this includes drive and your mail. There is currently no option for
Baker College users to increase your storage.
One of Google Drive's most useful features is the ability to share your files with others, while controlling their visibility and access
levels. You can control these settings for each individual file or for an entire folder.
To keep your Google Drive contents organized; Baker College recommends that you use folders and some sort of naming convention
for docs. This can be especially helpful for repetitive docs (e.g. 8/15/2013 – Information Systems Team Meeting, 9/15/2013 –
Information Systems Team Meeting, etc), as a naming convention will make it easier for you to find documents in your Drive.
It is also recommended that you use folders for uniform sharing. Sharing a folder will share its contents, including any items added
to the folder in the future.
Creating the folders will automatically make you the owner. Being the owner of a file gives you control over it, and once you change
owners, you give up those controls. So before you transfer ownership, here are the things you’ll no longer be able to do:
When you transfer ownership of a folder from yourself to another person, the new owner of the folder becomes an editor of the files
in that folder. The original owners of the files remain the owners.
Transfer ownership of your files, folders, and Google documents to another active account before your current account is being deleted. Once the account is deleted, you won’t be able to recover anything from your deleted Google Drive account.
