i want to use insync instead of “backup and sync client” from google, but I might have a specific usercase.
I do not want to sync my “Drive” Folder, but sync specific folders on my Computer, and preserve the folder structure, namely my /Users/ folder. With the google client, this is possible.
I found out that I can choose the /Users/ folder as the Insync-Folder at the beginning of the installation. That’s not ideal because I cannot sync other folders that are not within /Users/, but it’s okay.
when I installed the client this way, it shows me “no files” in /Users/. Only when I upload something manually via drive.google.com to the google drive folder, it shows up in InSync, but it does not sync to my local computer. I tried it both on Windows 10 and Kubuntu (19.04).
Maybe this is the case because my trial expired? If so, is there a way to extend my trial period for like a few days that I can test if it works like I consider it to work?
