You can backup your computer with Google Drive soon

You can backup your computer with Google Drive soon

There are a lot of ways we can backup our computer, but now we have a much convenient way to do it — Google Drive Backup and Sync.

The Google Drive will be able to monitor and backup files inside of any folder you point it to that can include your desktop, your entire documents folder, or other more specific locations.

The backup feature will roll out later this month, on June 28th. The Backup and Sync app will replace both the standard Google Drive app and the Google Photos Backup app.

While it is unclear to what extent Google will provide for this new app, but we are speculating it to be able to open and edit some common file types as what we have already been doing on the Google Drive.


This is definitely a handy feature for those who need to backup their computers from time to time. Perhaps it will become Google’s killer blow towards its competition such as Dropbox etc.
