    So after upgrading to iOS 11 and therefore Apple files I have had the problem that whenever I am trying to open a PowerPoint, Word or Excel document it opens in google drive. Here it wants to save it and starts uploading, nothing really happens. So I can’t open documents I need.
    I do not have files associated with my drive, so it does not seams to be that.
    Upon deleting google drive I can open files normally.
    (I am using google drive for collaborative work so would like to still have access to it)

    Any one experience the same problem? Maybe have an idea for a solution which does not involve deleting google drive?

    Exact same thing happened to me whenever I tried to open documents stored in the Files app. I also ended up deleting Google Drive to remedy it, but don't have any proper solution unfortunately.

    There are a couple of threads on this already. It seems that a Google Drive update from a few days back may have caused the issue and it affects users in iOS 10, also.

    I deleted Google Drive too in the mean time. Super annoying though, makes the Files app rather useless.

    Thanks, my previous search did not help me find other enteries.
    Guess I am left with figuring whether I need to delete google drive or not then...
