Google Team Drives – Great for Sharing Files With Your Team

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. 

Unlike files in My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to your team instead of an individual. Even if a staff or faculty member leaves the HSC, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.

Note: Team Drives is not an approved storage solution for sensitive data. Please see TAMHSC Cloud for a HIPAA and FERPA compliant cloud storage solution.
