For the past couple of days every time I view folders in my organization's Google Drive account I get the following popup message:
Do you want to allow “https://drive.google.com” to use up to 1.2 GB of storage on your Mac?
I can't find any information online regarding this type of popup message asking for local storage which is odd. So I can't determine if it is a Google setting or a Mac/Safari setting let alone why it is requesting 1.2 GB storage. Especially since it also says I'm only using 394 MB of storage.
I want to understand why it is asking this question so I can make an informed decision about accepting or rejecting the request. And make it stop regenerating the popup every time I load a page on Google Drive.
Any info is greatly appreciated!
Edit to add:
I'm in the decision-making process for my org acquiring G Suite and need to understand if it is caching org files on personal devices, and if so how they are protected on personal devices we don't control.
