Google has fixed a service outage for its Google Drive file-sharing application that affected "a significant subset of users" for about two hours Monday morning, the company said.

The Mountain View-based tech giant said via an online status page that it was investigating reports of a Google Drive problem at 9:17 a.m. local time. The company later disclosed that the issue was keeping affected users from accessing the application.

By 10:55 a.m., Google said it had restored service for "some users" already, and by 11:35 a.m. said the problem should be fixed. The company did not specify how many users were affected or provide more details about the nature of the problem.
