Two days ago Google launched Google Drive. Yesterday we saw the volume of files uploaded to Google Drive (née Google Docs) increase by a factor of 10. People are uploading a bunch of stuff—but what? What’s in your Google Drive?
As it turns out, that’s a tough question to answer. Well, it was until just now.
Spanning Stats for Google Drive is now available, and it’s free. To get a customized visual report of exactly how you’re using Google Drive (like the one shown here) just visit freetools.spanning.com/#stats and click “Sign In”. Or if you’re a Google Apps domain administrator, click “Add to Google Apps” and you’ll be able to see a report for your whole domain and each user in it.
Either way, you’ll see a complete report showing:
- percentage of docs in your Google Drive by type
- top 10 newest and oldest files
- percentage of your files were created and viewed in the last month and year
- volume of documents created per week over the last year
- volume of documents created by hour throughout the day
- how much quota you’re consuming by file type
- the 10 files consuming the most quota
- the 10 users consuming the most quota (domain admins only)
- size of files uploaded per week over the last year
- size of files uploaded by hour throughout the day
You can share your report privately or publicly, and can disable sharing at any time. You can view the domain-wide report for spanning.com here.
We invite you to check it out, run a report, and let us know how you’re using Google Drive.
