I use Google Drive for three things. First is just a remote storage area where I can stash files and sometimes make them available to others. The other two things are for backup. I have a windows computer where I store some files that I need local direct access to and I back them up with the Google sync and backup app. But I keep my main files on a linux file server. I use a low power small box computer that works great to serve files. I would not however it is 32-bit so I have to use the old 1.4.x version of insync. Well that is the plan anyway; I am on my 15-day trial.
I installed insync and it works, but not the way I wanted it to. With the windows google app, I have it sync my computer and it creates a new subfolder below the main drive:
As you can see in this image, there is a folder called computers, and a subfolder called map which is the windows computer’s folders that I sync.
When I run insync on linux (Debian stretch) it starts syncing but puts it in the top level folder.
You can see in this screen shot the files/folders with the little blue marks are the ones being synced from the file server. You saw how they were showing up in the web interface in the first image.
That’s not what I want. I want them to be in a subfolder like the “map” computer. Is there a way to do that? The only other screenshot from my Debian file server that may provide insight it this:
I am hoping it can do this. Is the command line version of the 1.x series still available? Can it be done from the command line?
