Lock Files in Google Drive

Google has added an exciting new feature to Drive!

You can now lock files to prevent reviewers from making changes. Edits, comments, and suggestions can’t be added to a locked document.

To lock a file in Google Drive, right-click the file, select File information, and click Lock.

A pop-up window will confirm that you want to lock the file.

Note: Locked files can’t be edited, but users with edit rights can unlock a file.
