I recently enabled Google Photos in my Google Drive account. I then realized that Insync was syncing it to my computer inside of my Google Drive local copy. I then unchecked the Photos folder on the selective synchronization, but it still shows it in the Progress tab after several days.
Insync is not actually downloading any of the folders, but it keeps flashing random picture folders for sync in the progress section, and the number of files remaining is changing rapidly. Again, nothing is actually being synced to the computer, it just looks like they are.
