Quick Command script to deploy Google Drive to Mac users thru Commands. I have it as a once a day trigger. If installed it will skip installation.

 

# Script to download, Silent Install and then clean up once installed Google Drive.

if [ -d /Applications/Google\ Drive.app/ ];
then
  echo "Already Installed"
  exit 0
else

#Make temp folder for downloads. 
mkdir "/tmp/gdrive/"; cd "/tmp/gdrive/"; 

#Download filestream.
