Getting Comfortable With The Basics

Google Backup & Sync Desktop Update

Google Backup & Sync for Desktop Gets a Big Update With Ignored File Types, Photo/video-only Sync, and More by androidpolice.com

Google completely revamped the desktop Google Drive client this year with the move to Backup & Sync. The initial rollout was a bit of a mess with Google essentially breaking Drive for some people. It eventually worked all that out, and Backup & Sync has been running smoothly since then. There haven't been many feature additions, but there's a big one rolling out now. In the latest version, you have more control over which files are synced, and it's easier to add new folders to Drive.

The latest version of the Backup & Sync client has build number 3.38.7642.3857. Here's what you can expect to see when you update.
