What is bDrive?

Go Google: Google Drive

bDrive is the Berkeley brand for Google Drive, which is an online storage and collaboration solution available to students, faculty, and staff. 

Best Uses for bDrive?

bDrive is a good solution for:

  • Accessing your Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms from one place
  • Organizing your Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms into folders and sharing those folders with your collaborators
  • Sharing other kinds of files with limited numbers of collaborators (for large groups of collaborators, Box may be a better choice)
