Update: Google Drive should be up and working for most people now.
If you’re having trouble accessing all your documents on Google Drive just now, well, you’re not the only one.
According to Is it Down Right Now?, the Google Docs portal has been offline for more than an hour, though judging by the normally-reliable comments on Twitter, that might be closer to 30 minutes.
At any rate, Google’s own app status machine confirms that disruption is afoot, and we’ve reached out to Google to see what’s up with its giant hard-drive in the sky. For now, its status says:
“Our team is continuing to investigate this issue. We will provide an update by 6/4/14 5:39 PM with more information about this problem. Thank you for your patience. Affected users are having slowness and latency issues when accessing drive.google.com.”
