I just reinstalled OS X (10.11) and am now unable to get Drive working.
Then.. nothing. Nothing more happens. Completely repeatable, I've killed it and tried again, rebooted, shut down and turned on, deleted the folder in ~/Library/Application Support/, nothing.
It was fine on this machine (2013 MBA) with 10.11 prior to disk wipe and reinstall.
Months later, this is still an issue. My only workaround is to launch it via:
sudo /Applications/Google\ Drive.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Drive
then it's fine!
But it doesn't seem to be a permissions issue. I've reinstalled Drive countless times; I've wiped my disk and reinstalled both OS X and Drive too. I also tried disabling SIP. Nothing.
I contacted Google support when I first had this issue, after hours of being told to do what I told them I'd already tried they watched my screen as I did it again, but unfortunately had nothing to suggest. I've been waiting 5 months and occasionally following up on the promise of "a specialist" getting back to me, nothing yet. (Spiel about the jeopardy of my subscription package goes here.)
Extremely grateful for any suggestions - I don't really want to be running it with
