    Map Google Drive

    Is there a way to map a google drive as you would a shared folder on the network so thatnistvavailable as a drive when they log on a PC? I know I had a script of here I think to do it with the Sky Drive when I last looked at this. Got a Google Drive on our tablets just for transferring photos and the odd document to the network. Bit of a manual job at the moment so just wondered if I could do it any easier. Did read there is an app I can put on the server to sync with it them map the folder it syncs to as normal, is that right and has anyone done it?

    With that I have to have the google drive syncing prog installed and then it's just linking to that folder as far as I can see.

    There is...

    https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375078

    Once it has been installed on the server and you have logged into the Google account, share the Google Drive folder (%UserProfile%\Google Drive) as you would any other folder and map a drive to it on the other Windows computers - either manually or via Group Policy.

    If you are school, use Google GADS to sync a users home directory to their google drive account. Then you only need to map their home dir as normal.
