Google has jumped on the bandwagon to partially support Microsoft with Windows 11 in a strange way. Some users of Windows 10, specifically those with a 32-bit version, will find that Google Drive will no longer be supported in just a couple of months. Fortunately, this is a drop of support, but that could result in a hard-stop at any time, meaning you need to have an exit plan. Drop Google Drive, or upgrade your computer. If you want to know if you’re affected, hit Windows-Pause/Break, and the resulting screen will say System Type about halfway down, and identify if it’s 32 or 64-bit. Again, Google Drive, and 32-bit is the identifier combination that should give you concern.

Microsoft ended all support for Windows 7 and 8.1 earlier this year, which encouraged some software to move on from older Windows versions. Now, Google Drive is ending support for Windows 8 and some Windows 10 PCs.
