Google Backup and Sync

TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT -

A NEW BACKUP TOOL THAT USES GOOGLE DRIVE TO STORE YOUR FILES.

GOOGLE BACKUP AND Sync isn’t a tra­di­tional backup tool by any means, it is cloud-based and just what you are able to back up will de­pend on how much on­line Google stor­age you have avail­able.

You’re given a lim­ited amount of space for free, and there are var­i­ous ways to boost it with­out hav­ing to part with any money, but in re­al­ity Google Backup and Sync is go­ing to be use­ful for back­ing up in­di­vid­ual di­rec­to­ries – not your whole sys­tem.

For back­ing up key files and fold­ers, how­ever, it’s su­perb. You can eas­ily spec­ify any num­ber of fold­ers for the soft­ware to mon­i­tor, and any changes, ad­di­tions or dele­tions are im­ple­mented near-in­stan­ta­neously.

As the name sug­gests, the soft­ware can be used to syn­chro­nise files be­tween com­put­ers, and they are ac­ces­si­ble through on any de­vice via the Google Drive web app. An ex­cel­lent, if slightly lim­ited, backup tool.
