Google offers two new options to access, sync G Suite Drive files

Documents flying out of some folders and into a cloud storage system.

Use the new options – Drive File Stream and Backup and Sync – to access and sync your Google Drive and Team Drive files. These two options will replace the old Drive sync application, which Google will no longer support beginning December 11, 2017. With Drive File Stream, you can access Google Drive and Team Drive files from your desktop. Backup and Sync syncs files on your Google Drive with the ones on your computer and backs them up on your hard drive.
