See What's Happening With My Google Drive

Since losing Ubuntu One, us, Ubuntu users had to scramble to find a replacement. Since I already use a Google account I have Google drive. Its 15 GB free storage is more than enough for my documents and pictures. But no Google drive client for linux.

Of course there's Insync, a cross platform Google drive client.

I prefer the open source application, Grive which is still in beta. There were reports of the application wiping files and other bugs. My only whine includes the slow start of the sync process as compared with Dropbox. Other than that, my files appear to be synchronized.

I tried using links to folders to automatically make a backup of files and it works.



Nautilus file manager's Google drive folder with links to local folders.



Google Drive dashboard as the folders appear after sync.
