Hey there This isn’t your usual post. Essentially, I’m interested to know if my bad experiences with Backup and Sync are shared by other people, and whether these bugs are not present on the Windows InSync. This is relevant here, because if InSync performs better, I would consider this to be the main reason to switch to using InSync on Windows, and to advise others to do the same.
Firstly, Backup and Sync sometimes creates a duplicate folder with a (1) at the end of the duplicated folder name, even though on the Google Drive web app there is only one instance of the folder. I think it happens when I move folders around.
Secondly, I have just seen Backup and Sync delete an important folder on my Windows Explorer (which is essential for my work), but the folder is not deleted in my cloud storage and in the Backup and Sync preferences, the setting is turned on to sync that folder (which also appears in the preferences). This happened when I deleted an empty sub-folder.
Overall, I have a low tolerance for Backup and Sync not working perfectly, and so far on my Linux machine InSync has worked perfectly, so now I am considering switching to InSync on Windows. Does InSync work better than Backup and Sync on Windows?
