Google Drive - Computer/My Laptop

Hi to you all. I’ve just installed a trial of Insync on Windows 10 for backup/sync of files on my local PC to Google Drive, but I’m running into a problem. I already have some 250 GB of data (mostly image files) stored on Drive, but in the “Computer/My Laptop” path, NOT in the basic “My Drive” path and Insync doesn’t seem to read that path. Is there anything I can do? Thanks in advance.

Hi @Sarah_Gregg,

The “Computers” on Google Drive is a feature exclusive to Backup & Sync.

You can sync your local file to My Drive by using Local Selective Sync:

Thanks, I feared that might be the problem. Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of this before uploading my image files using Backup & Sync. I’ll have to look for a workround.
