How to sync local file on desktop with a folder in Google Drive?
Hi guys,
I got a list that is stored in Cyberduck and then to view a list I need to download to my local drive on my macbook which is now automatic. I would like that same file to be synced with a mirror file in Google Drive at the same time (or close enough) when the same file is being stored.
I downloaded the Google Drive on desktop and I can access all the files and folders but still didn't figure out how to sync.
Does anyone know how to do that?
Many thanks!
