Google’s Backup & Sync Service Is Here to Secure the Rest of Your Data
If you’re not prepped to handle an unexpected loss of your personal data, Google’s got you covered. It finally released its Backup & Sync service, which lets you upload and sync files from any folder on your computer or connected drives to Google Drive without moving them around. It won’t replace a comprehensive backup service like Crashplan, but is definitely something to look into if you have no real backup plan.
Google’s Backup & Sync is essentially an upgraded version of Google Drive. In addition to handling your Google Drive files and letting you sync them to your local device, you can now pick and choose folders in other locations on your Mac or PC, whether on your main hard drive or external one.
