Google today announced the launch of Backup and Sync, a new app for Macs and PCs that's designed to back up files and photos safely in Google Drive and Google Photos. The new app is meant to replace the existing Google Photos desktop uploader and Drive for Mac/PC. To use Backup and Sync, Google Drive/Photos users just need to download the app and then choose the folders they want to back up. From there, the selected folders will be continually backed up to Google's services, providing an alternative to Time Machine and making it easier to automatically store important files in the cloud. In addition to specific folders on a Mac or PC, Backup and Sync can also automatically import files from SD cards and USB devices when a camera, SD card, or other device is connected to a computer.
There are also specific options users can set to dictate how file deletions are handled, and users can choose to upload photos at a lower quality if space is a concern. Backup and Sync is available starting today through. ICloud is expensive and doesn't give nearly the same amount of free storage. Also isn't friendly with non Apple products. Big difference.
2TB of iCloud = $9.99/month. For that price, Google gives you 1TB, which is.well, half. At lower levels, $2.99/month gets you 200GB on iCloud vs 100GB for $1.99/month on Google (or $3.98 for 200GB if you're math challenged). So no, iCloud is not in any way the more expensive option. Well, can you restore old versions? Because backup means: going back in time, and retrieve previous versions. The big problem with just a copy somewhere happens when you bump into a software bug.
Installing the 'Google Drive Desktop Application' on your Mac allows you to instantly sync your photos, videos & files on your hard drive to Google Drive & vice-versa. Google Drive allows you to create a special folder (Google Drive folder) on each of your computers for storing the photos, videos, files & documents. If you want to install Backup and Sync for your personal account, see Back up & sync files with Drive. How it works. When you install Backup and Sync, it creates a folder on your computer named Google Drive. Anything you put in this folder syncs with a folder named My Drive in Drive on the web, and becomes available on all your Drive devices. This is a 2-way sync, so changes you make online are reflected on all your devices, and vice-versa.
For example, you're editing a Word document and everything seems fine and dandy. Two weeks later it doesn't open for some reason. No idea, Word crashes when it tries to open it.
Then you want to try and open previous versions of that same file. Google Drive will keep the last 30 days of revisions.
Through the web interface, you can select versions to keep permanently. Not sure how this new backup app works with that, but I'd certainly hope it was compatible.
