    Hey Im new to this forum an need some urgent help!

    Ever since I have been using google drive on my S5 each time I add something it downloads ALL THE STORED FILES ALL OVER AGAIN!
    Ive just tried to download a short video and its jammed up the phone trying to re download 24 files!! The only way I could stop it was to disable via app manager
    Help please. Urgent

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Try turning the Sync feature off and see if that solves the issue.

    Dropbox is good.. If you're with vzw you get 5 gigs of free storage with their cloud..

    I'd love to know what's going on there. It works flawlessly for me. I've never had difficulty downloading just one file at a time. I wish I could troubleshoot it for you and get it working properly. Still, the others mentioned will work as well.

    Ok. Hope this solves your issue!

    Open the drive app on your device. You need to check all the settings for the keep on device to not be enabled. And go thru your files and hit the info button on right side...there will be a slider to turn on it off. Turn then all OFF. ;)
