Sync folders with Google Drive

tech-tricksIf you’ve been using Google Drive already then you probably know your way around the program.


But if you don’t, there’s a simple way to sync some folders with the drive automatically.


To sync folders, right-click on the Google Drive icon, then click on “preferences”.


There, you should see the “Sync options” menu. To sync folders, click on the “only sync some folders” option. Keep in mind that files in Google Drive that are not in a folder will always sync.


On that same page, you can also hit the option to sync your Google Docs files.
