Extremely dissatisfied with Google Drive
« on: December 31, 2017, 06:19 PM »
Hello!

I have Google Drive on my Android phone. I had selected some files and chose to make them available offline. However, now after few months, they disappeared. Additionally, the option to make them available offline disappeared.

How can I make them available locally on my phone? I only see the option to download them, but it doesn't allow me to choose location!

Is there any other solution?

thanks!

Internal Storage->Download is the default download location, then just move them elsewhere.

Available Offline still appears under latest version of Drive, can get it by click-hold on a single file or select a few and use the 3dot menu on the Action bar.

Strange, after selecting all, the three dots at the top right has these options only:
Sort by
Clear Selection
Select all
Folder actions (which doesn't have an offline option)

But I will download them, thanks, but maybe Android deletes them from there?

... the three dots at the top right ...

The Action Bar is at the bottom after selecting files:

Android doesn't delete downloads, you delete downloads ... then again, you are using a Xiaomi device so who knows where they download to by default.
