Starting soon, you’ll be able to rely on Google Drive to back up your computer. On Wednesday Google released a blog post and just to get the feels of how Google Drive plays a crucial role in our lives, check this out –
On June 28th, 2017, we will launch Backup and Sync from Google, a tool intended to help everyday users back up files and photos from their computers, so they’re safe and accessible from anywhere. Backup and Sync is the latest version of Google Drive for Mac/PC, which is now integrated with the Google Photos desktop uploader. As such, it will respect any current Drive for Mac/PC settings in the Admin console. – Google

Hence, it’s a pretty smart move by Google and a pretty handy utility. There have been requests for Dropbox to add something like this for ages, and it’s yet to get around to it. Luckily Drive came to the rescue, people have always had to store files directly in the app’s local folder. For anyone looking for a bit more flexibility in their syncing apps, Google seems like it’s about to become the winning option!
