Guide to Setup Google Drive


1 Account Check

In order to use Google Drive, you will need an account with Google.

This is the same account you use with an Android phone or tablet, or any other Google service. It is all based off a GMail account, which usually ends in for a personal account.

You may also use a business account, which may end in your company's domain, instead.

If you are unsure if your business account is also a Google account, contact your company's I.T. department and ask what services are available to you.
