    So...how do I do this? I have the GD folder on my desktop, and I'd like the convenience of dragging folders into it and having them automatically saved to GD online. As I recall this used to work great for me, but haven't used this way in a long time....nowadays I mainly just go to my Google Drive, and then do a "New---Upload Folder or file".......I'd prefer to be able to do it the easier way. Thanks for any help with this.

    There are two different apps for Google drive. I am going to assume you are not using "Google Sync" which is used for paid corporate Google accounts.
    upload_2019-9-8_18-42-51.png Check the status of your Google drive application, down in your notification tray. Make sure it is running and that your account is logged in. You may have to uninstall and re-install the app.
