Resolved: Sharing files in Google Drive

 Sharing files in Google Drive

To the campus community,

We are happy to report the bug in Google Drive erroneously flagging some Drive files (e.g. documents, spreadsheets, slides, etc.) as “inappropriate” and preventing sharing has been resolved by Google. The issue affecting some Google accounts arose last week and had been reported by UC Berkeley and many other institutions that use Google Workspace.

If you encounter any other issues using Google Drive or need general technical support please contact us:
