Thanks for creating this awesome application !
These days Google is about to deprecate their old Google Drive app for windows, new app - “Backup and Sync” only replicates the folders structure to a chosen folder on user’s machine, and displays every item as a link. If for instance I have several PDF files in the cloud they are displayed as links, when I click any of them then file is streamed to my device, and is opened directly in a pdf-viewer without being saved. This feature makes a lot of sense for some use cases, and works great from a UX perspective (when one have good connection).
It would be nice to have something similar in the Insync app. One way it may be implemented in regards to UI is:
1 - Under “My Drive” tab where Google Drive content is displayed, when right-clicking the item, menu pops up where user can choose “Sync entire folder”. Add “Stream entire folder” option there.
2 - When “Stream folder” option is selected for a particular folder, this folder works exactly as in the Google’s new application.
This will enable user to sync some of the folder entirely, while having other content displayed as links which will add a lot of flexibility and provide better user experience.
