How do I upload a file into Google Drive?
Confirm Upload Settings
Before uploading your first document into Drive, you should first be aware of the upload settings within Drive. The settings allow you to either convert the file into a Google Docs format during the upload or to keep the orginal format (Word, Excel, PowerPoint.)
In Drive, go to Settings -> Upload Settings to view your default settings. We highly recommend that you always 'Confirm settings before each upload.'
More information on Upload Settings can be found at:
