    Hi everyone,

    If installed on PC, Google Drive syncs the contents of the Google Drive folder to the cloud automatically.

    I want a continuous backup to specific folders on my PC, say "Uni Stuff" and "Music" (different locations).

    That requires GDrive to perceive the two folders as the original GDrive folder. I'm guessing it's possible.


    The reason I don't want to just copy the stuff I want to backup, into the GDrive folder, is because it creates an actual copy on my physical HDD. That takes up lots of space.


    Is there a way to do it?
    Thanks.

    Or create a folder inside of your local GDrive folder you want synced
