Google Drive replacement Backup and Sync gives trouble


#1

Google is in the process of rolling out “Backup and Sync” to replace its Google Drive desktop product. However, the update seems to off to a bad start with some getting an error message saying that Backup and Sync needs to quit.

Fun fact: there is a at least one unofficial FUSE (Filesystem in
User Space) client, which is meant to offer seamless integration in Unix-based systems (especially GNU/Linux systems).

Personally, I recommend NOT using online storage services unless you want to publish something to the general public. On that note, I don’t recommend Google Drive for any purpose, since Google loves to spy on you.
