Though it's Tuesday, Google Drive is making people feel like it's a Monday.

A number of Google Drive users are experiencing slow load times while others can't even access their documents. The slow down seems to be largely isolated to US users.

The issues seem to have started around 8:41 a.m. PT, with problems affecting less than 10.3 percent of active users, according to Google's G Suite Dashboard. The company is "continuing to investigate this issue."

As of 1:20 p.m. PT Tuesday January 17, Google had restored full service to all active users.


Service has been restored.
