    Welcome to Android Central! I'm not entirely clear on your question. Are you talking about saving a file using your device's Google Drive app, or using Google Drive on your computer? What do you mean it reloads everything it has previously downloaded?

    Using the app on the phone.
    When I add a document, picture or anything,
    If for example I have 9 files existing, as the newest one downloads it notifies me that 10 files are being downloaded.
    I have put up with this until recently when I was downloading a short video and was notified that 24 files were attempting to download!
    Result complete log jam
    Phone stopped functioning properly
    Warning of low storage...

    Have been advised to turn off sync..

    Google Drive shouldn't be downloading any files to the phone unless you select that option. I'm still a bit confused by what you're saying. When you say you're adding a document to Google Drive, you're actually uploading it to Drive, right? This is the sentence that confuses me: "If for example I have 9 files existing, as the newest one downloads it notifies me that 10 files are being downloaded. " If you're adding a file to Google Drive, it should be uploading, not downloading. So if the newest one is uploading, then are you saying that afterwards, all 10 files (including the one you just uploaded) then proceed to download?

    What device do you have?

    Try going to Settings>Apps>All, select Google Drive, and Force Stop, then Clear Cache and Clear Data. Now open it again, let it sync, and try again.
