INSTALL GOOGLE BACKUP AND SYNC FOR GROUP SHARING – THE RIGHT WAY

After going about this all wrong, I finally managed to configure this product the correct way in order to create a shared folder that was shareable amongst several computers, just like Dropbox. Of course, you already know how much I hate Dropbox mainly because it turns your Intel Core i5 7th Gen processor into a 1990s Pentium!

  1. Install GoogleDrive (Google Backup and Sync) onto the main computer
  2. Right-click the little icon in the System Tray (this can take 30 seconds), three dots, Preferences
  3. CHOOSE FOLDER (and optionally deselect suggested folders)
  4. Using Explorer (My Computer etc) right-click the folder you chose, Google Drive, Share or View on Web
  5. Type in the email addresses of all the people you want to share the folder with
