Running W7, with Open Office. Have just backed up My Doc files onto Google Drive. All folders and files that are on Google Drive have a green tick over the icon. However if I create a new file that does not have a tick, even though it is in the same folder with files that appear to have the same properties. I tried to search on W7 help Google drive forum, I looked also on Open Office (but I don't think it is that that is applying the tick). The only reference I could find to tick were to do with Norton, I do not have Norton installed. Any comment I would be grateful for.

It is part of the Google Drive process. See paragraph at bottom of this page

Thanks for that Sea Urchin, I looked on this page but could not see the icon so obviously overlooked the last paragraph. Just shows when in doubt RTFI READ THE Fxxxxxx INSTRUCTIONS. Thanks again.
