Many schools and businesses rely on Google Drive to create and store documents, spreadsheets and other files safely in Google’s storage system.
On Friday, the popular cloud-based storage solution had a few hiccups and has become inaccessible for many users.
When trying to access a document on the drive, many people were greeted with an unpleasant message that reads : “Sorry, the file you have requested does not exist. Please check the address and try again.”
As soon as the system went down, people began to take to Twitter to express their feelings about the outage. While it is unknown of what caused the problem, we can all agree that this is a good reason to end your workday early if you rely on Google’s services throughout the day.
Here’s what’s being said on Twitter:
