Yep, that’s right. It’s not just you, Google Drive is down! And it has been for the last forty minutes, yet I am incessantly watching Drive “trying to reconnect” without avail. Interestingly, Google Classroom and Google Realtime API went down around the same time, according to the Apps Status Dashboard. There’s no telling if the outages are separate or related, at this point.
Hopefully we’ll have an update or resolution from Google very soon. In the meantime, let’s all stop tapping the refresh button, as it puts an unnecessary extra load on Google’s servers. Tell your boss you’re off to take a nap. Or maybe not–that could backfire!
