Adding a Shared File or Folder to your Google Drive

  1. Login to your email account through My.Georgiasouthern.edu.
  2. Click on the `MyApps ( Email, Docs, Sites, Calendar, Talk )` link in the portal.
  3. Now that you have your email open, look at the top right corner for an icon consisting of 9 little boxes (similar to a Rubik’s cube).
  4. In the drop down menu, select `Drive`.
  5. With Google Drive now open, locate the `Shared with Me` link in the left hand menu, or if you know the name of the file/folder, try searching for the file/folder name instead.
  6. Once you have located the file or folder that is shared with you, select it by clicking on the check box to the left of the file/folder name.
  7. You should now see a button under the search bar to `Add to My Drive`. Click the button.
  8. If the Google Drive application is installed on your computer, it should appear on your local drive shortly.
