I’ve successfully installed Google Drive on my Windows XP operating system. It really is very simple and it is working perfectly. It does sync up with your documents in Google Documents (well, you can choose not to let it sync up). Here’s how to install and set it up:
STEP 1: Download the Google Drive downloader. The downloader will then download the application. After this completes, click on ‘Accept and Install’.
Step 2: Click on ‘next’ to create a folder. This folder will be where all your documents and files will appear.
Step 3: Start to sync your documents and files with Google Drive on your computer. If you are ready to sync, click on the ‘Start sync’ button. However, if you prefer to customize your settings, click on the ‘Advanced setup’ button.
Step 4: If you clicked on ‘Advanced setup’ you should see the following settings. Modify your preferences and click on ‘Start sync’.
Your Google Drive has been installed!
You should now be able to see your files (if any) inside your Google Drive folder:
