Google Drive will soon be able to backup your entire computer

Google Drive will soon be able to backup your entire computer

If you now allow your users to install Drive for Mac/PC on their own computers, they will be able to download and upgrade to Backup and Sync starting on Wednesday, June 28th. Google simply wants to create a more robust backup tool that's still easy for use by general consumers, and this is the result. The app lets users back up files and photos that aren't already in Drive.

Google is going to introduce the Backup and Sync feature by releasing a new app of the same name. They could even select their entire PC desktop for backing up, although it's likely that would also cause them to purchase more storage space beyond the free 15 GB that Google Drive now offers for cloud users.

Multiple victims reported in shooting at UPS warehouse

The search giant just announced a new Backup and Sync tool, which will give everyday users the chance to save all the files and photos on their PCs to Google Drive. Back in March, we learned that Google was working on a new version called 'Backup and Sync, ' because the company accidentally pushed an unfinished version to users which didn't work at all.

The Backup and Sync app is intended for the general public to use, so if you have a G Suite account, you're out of luck. Also, not all G Suite users will automatically be upgraded to the ability - managers of the G Suite account will need to turn on the option for employees to utilize the backup feature for them to get access to Backup and Sync.
