I am setting up a single Win10 computer that I want multiple staff (eg. 4) to have local access to, each with their own local user account.
Our organization uses Google Apps (whatever the Enterprise version is, I think "G Suite"), and we routinely need to download/upload to our shared Google Drives. So it is best to actually mount the gDrive on the computer using the Google-Drive local app (not just the web interface).
The question is:
- Can I set up each local user to log into the local Google-Drive app with their own Google Drive login? Seems to me like this wouldn't work well because gDrive mounts a virtual-drive, which, in theory, would be present between ALL local logins, and thus clash between local Google-Drive instances of different local user. I would prefer this solution since it retains permissions for each user.
- If not the above, can I have one "superuser" load gDrive and mount the drive, which is then read/write accessible to all local users? In this case, I would need gDrive to load regardless of which user is logged in, and all local accounts have access. In this case I would make a new Google Apps user just for this purpose, with limited access to only the required shared drives.
(If no real solution exists for gDrive with multiple local accounts, then I will just make them use the web interface - a bit annoying for our use-case of downloading and then uploading files to the shared folders - but it will work at least.)
