Clemson users can enjoy unlimited data storage integrated with Clemson Google Apps for Education. Google Apps includes Drive, Google’s cloud storage solution that features several cloud applications including Google Documents, Google Spreadsheets, and Google Presentations. Employees (including student employees) have the option to enable both Gmail and Exchange; however if the user is just a student, they will only have access to Gmail. For students to get to it, log in to http://g.clemson.edu and click on Drive in the applications bar. Employees (faculty and staff) will need to visit clemson.edu/emailforwarding to change the settings and activate their Clemson Gmail account.

Additionally, users can click the link on the left side of the page to install Google Drive on their own computer. If they do this, a folder will be placed in their computer’s documents for their Google Drive files. They may drag and drop files to or from their Google Drive folder to sync files to their Google Apps account.
