On July 12th, Google launched Backup and Sync for Google Photos and Google Drive.
As most of us are guilty of having all of our files saved in various places, this tool assists users in keeping their files in a single location. Backup and Sync is an application for both, Mac and PC that backs up the files and photos reliably and simply in Google Drive and Google Photos. Additionally, the back up tool is replacing the pre-existing Google Photos Desktop Uploader and Drive applications that were available on Mac and PC. As seen in the picture, users log in to their Google account and select the files that they want to be continuously backed up onto Google Drive.
Additionally, this tool can be used to backup photos from devices connected via USB, such as cameras and SD cards. In turn, the synced files can be found in Google Drive from any device, including computers, phones and iPads.
Although Google’s newest offering is free to download at the moment, Google encourages businesses and enterprises to wait for an updated version rolling out soon, that will be tailored to enterprises needs.
