Google Backup & Sync - No File Left Behind!

This summer, Google has drastically changed how to sync your Google Drive to your computer. Now, you can easily sync folders from your computer to Google Drive.

When Google Backup and Sync is setup, users can save files where they want, such as the desktop, without losing the file if the computer crashes, file becomes corrupt, or any of the various reasons files get lost.

Here are a few resources to help get started.
