Want To Share A Large Folder With Us?

How to Use Google Drive — Tutorial and Best Practices

 

We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to send us large folders during your content submission. To solve that problem, we recommend that you send us your large files/folders via Google Drive. Google Drive is an online platform that gives you the power to upload and save a range of file types — documents, photos, audio, and videos — to Google servers, or the "cloud."

Once you have uploaded your content via Google Drive you can then send us a link to your uploaded content and we will be able to view, comment on, and download any file link you send us. Here`s how:

1. Go to https://drive.google.com and sign in using your Google account. 

2. As soon as you have logged in, you'll see all the files and folders currently stored on your Google Drive account. If you already have a Google Drive folder ready to share, skip ahead to step 7.

3. Now you will need to create a new folder. To create a new folder, click the New button in the upper-left corner of your screen, beneath the Google Drive logo.

4. In the New drop-down, click Folder at the top of the list. If you already have a folder on your computer you want to upload in its entirety, you should choose the Folder upload option in this menu.
