Service for Google Drive for Mac/PC versions 1.27 and older ending after February 1, 2017

Today, we’re announcing that as of February 1, 2017, we will discontinue service for Drive for Mac/PC desktop app versions 1.27 and lower. Going forward, we will officially discontinue service for any Google Drive for Mac/PC versions older than one year.

Newer versions of the Drive desktop app offer several performance and security updates. To ensure the highest quality experience for your users, we recommend that you take the following actions as soon as possible:
OS X and Windows users may check what version of Google Drive they are using by clicking on the Drive for Mac/PC menu, clicking on the three-dots icon, and then clicking About. Users still on versions 1.27 and lower after February 1, 2017 will no longer be able to sync files between Google Drive and local storage using Google Drive for Mac/PC.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be contacting domain administrators whose users currently use older versions of Google Drive for Mac/PC and provide guidance on the appropriate migration path.
