New Google Backup and Sync App Can Automatically Backup to Google Drive\r\nRecently, on June 28, 2017, Google released a folder backup and sync tool between local computer and online Google Drive cloud storage named Backup and Sync. Actually, this software is used to replace the former Desktop Photo Backup and Google Drive app to automatically backup photos/files to Google Drive online.\r\n\r\nAuto Backup to Google Drive with Backup and Sync\r\nIf you are a user of former Desktop Photo Backup, you are probably to be asked to update to Backup and Sync. If not, you should download and install this automatic backup software from Google official site. Google auto backup download free >>\r\n\r\nWhen successfully installed, let us get started with this auto backup Google drive journey!\r\n\r\nGoogle Drive Backup and Sync Get Started\r\n\r\nThe first step is Google auto backup login.\r\n\r\nOnce signed in, let us go to Google auto backup settings. The step two is computer settings. You can specify Google backup folder on your machine to be backed up to Google Drive. If there are photos or videos in source folder, you can set their upload size to manage your cloud drive space. You can also check “Upload photos and videos to Google Photos”. \r\n\r\nGoogle Drive Backup and Sync Computer Settings\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThen, it goes to step three - Google Drive settings. Here, you can select which folder(s) to be synced back to local computer and to which local folder to save the synced files/photos.\r\n\r\nGoogle Drive Backup and Sync Drive Settings\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nLastly, just click “START” and it will auto backup to Google drive folder.\r\n\r\nSeems easily and perfect. However, it is actually not so. There are some issues, problems, limitations or bugs.\r\n\r\nBackup and Sync can’t skip/filter certain file. These files are what you do not want to backup (unnecessary) or already backed up, such as raw files and jpeg pictures. Backup and Sync have to back up the whole folder; this will waste Google auto backup space in destination and take away Google auto backup time. This is stupid.\r\n\r\nBackup and Sync can’t backup photos/files that reside on a network share (NAS).\r\n\r\nBackup and Sync will re-backup photos, pictures or videos which have been copied to Google Drive before by Desktop Photo Backup. This will not only require more target storage space but also cost more time to finish the task. That is why some users complain about Google photos backup slow or Google drive sync never stops.\r\n\r\nSince Google Photos has been merged with Google Drive, rumor has it Google is letting people get away with having a 1 user business account to access unlimited storage.\r\n\r\n…\r\n\r\nTherefore, what can we do? On the one hand, we can continue to bear this troublesome work of auto backup photos to Google drive with Backup and Sync or just roll back to the older Desktop Photos Backup. Yet, it seems hard to go back for we can’t find where to download the former automatic backup software. (I have tried but failed)\r\n\r\nOn the other hand, we can turn to ask help for third party tools. Actually, I select out one which is powerful and free. Let us see how it works?\r\n\r\nAutomatic Backup to Google Drive Using AOMEI Backupper\r\nAOMEI Backupper is a professional and reliable program which aims to do backup and restore work. Thus, it can replace Google Backup and Sync and backup local files, photos, pictures, videos, etc. to cloud. With a schedule setting, it can auto backup pictures to Google Drive and so on.\r\n\r\nFor preparation, first thing first, download its FREE Standard Edition, install and launch it on your local computer. In its Backup tab, select “File Backup”.\r\n\r\nFile Backup\r\n\r\nNext, in step1, add the files or folders you want to automatically back up to google.\r\n\r\nAdd File Folder\r\n\r\nYou can backup photos/files that reside on a network share or NAS.\r\n\r\nAdd NAS Share File Folder\r\n\r\nIn step2, select destination. Here, in drop-down arrow, choose “Select a cloud drive”. Yes, you can backup to NAS or network share.\r\n\r\nBackup to Cloud\r\n\r\nSelect Google Drive in pop up window.\r\n\r\nAuto Backup to Google Drive\r\n\r\nNotes:\r\n\r\nAOMEI Backupper currently supports Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, SugarSync, hubiC and CloudMe. More clouds to be supported in the future.\r\n\r\nAmong these supported cloud drives, only the ones who have be installed on local computer can be selected as destination.\r\n\r\nThen, it comes to the most important part. To achieve automatically backup to Google Drive, we have to set a schedule here.\r\n\r\nSchedule Backup\r\n\r\nFinally, click “Start Backup” to do the initial manually backup to Google Drive. Then, in the future, it will auto backup to Google drive in the frequency you set.\r\n\r\nBesides automatically backup files/photos/pictures to Google Drive, AOMEI Backupper can also auto backup system/partition/disk to Google Drive, sync files to Google Drive etc. Really, an excellent tool worth to try!
