Download Google Drive Folder Mac

Google introduced 2 new tools last year, Backup and Sync and Drive File Stream, which replaced the original Google Drive Sync desktop app that long-time syncers would be familiar with.

Google Drive Sync basically mapped a 'Google Drive' folder on your local filesystem that was (you guessed it) synced to your Google Drive.

That method of syncing went away with the release of Backup and Sync & Drive File Stream.

(Optional) Delete the Google Drive folder at /Google Drive. Note: Use caution deleting this folder, as it may contain content that has not yet been saved or synced. Drive File Stream comes packaged with Google Update (Windows) or Google Software Update (Mac) to automatically update Drive File Stream on your users’ computers.

Bring back the dedicated 'Google Drive sync folder' with Insync, a superpowered syncing client on Windows, Linux and macOS.

Choose the cloud files you want to see locally on the Insync interface.

Sync all files, just some or no files at all. The app shows you all your Google Drive files:

See and use your synced files in your mapped Google Drive folder.

Add more files in the folder to sync them up to Google Drive.
