I have been using Insync for a while. I use it to upload (1-way sync) files from my (linux) file server to google drive as a backup (and to make them available remotely for download from google drive).
My old server was a 32-bit machine (hence my username) and it is now time to upgrade that. I have a new server with all the same files, and am about to get insync running on that (buying a new license and everything).
I received help here (Sync computer to separate folder) to get this set up, so my files are synced to “Computer” in Google Drive as seen here:
You can see my files are in two directories, corresponding to my server:
That screenshot is from the new file server, but the structure was the same on the old server.
I always have trouble with specifying slashes (or not). That’s why you can see I have both /backup and /backup/backup above (I decided to live with that mistake).
I just want to make sure when i start syncing again, I don’t end with insync adding all my files to a new folder under My Drive/backup.
For the setup of the new install, I would just check “backup” after I allow it to contact google drive:
And for the folder to sync it to, I select /backup/backup correct?
Just wanted someone to confirm before I pull the trigger. I really don’t want to have to reupload all my files, and (for example) find them in My Drive/backup/backup in google drive or something.
Thanks for the help.
