Google has announced that Drive File Stream, their replacement for the Google Drive desktop application, will be launching on September 12, 2017. This will not affect your usage of Google Drive from a web browser, but it will bring changes if you use the desktop application to access files stored in Google Drive.
The current version of the Google Drive desktop application will be unsupported starting on December 11, 2017 and will stop working on March 12, 2018. You will need to move tot he new Drive File Stream application if you want to continue having the same access to your files stored in Google Drive as you have in the past.
The biggest and most noteworthy change is that Drive File Stream will not download all of the files you have stored in Google Drive right away but, instead, work similarly to Micro Focus Filr by only downloading and caching files you are opening or have opened recently.
