If you use the Google Drive cloud storage for working and file management, you should also use the desktop app to store files in the Google servers. The company has now announced that it will discontinue the application on 12 March 2018. A little time for the changeover remains, because from then only the new service Backup & Sync for this concerns can be used. Google promises with this move better Usabilty and less memory requirement with its own devices. The change to Backup & Sync can of course already take place. So that the surprise next year will not be too big.
