drywall ceiling

I want to drywall my garage ceiling and it has a second floor. The beams that I would screw the drywall to has a row of metal supports attached to the upstair floor zig zaged and then to the underside of the joist. I'm not sure what these supports are called but can I drywall over them or do I have to move all of them? I think I shoud move them but do I need to keep them or just get rid of them all together.

drywall ceiling

Sounds like you are describing metal cross bracing. You need to leave that in place. You should be able to drywall right over it.
