[Solved]Google Drive File Stream

Recommended Posts

Google announced Drive replacement with Google Drive File Stream with which files will not be in the local PC (unless you mark it as "Available offline") but in Google cloud.

Will Resilio Sync manage those folders as any other or there is something to have into consideration?

@Danares Please note that Sync it is not a cloud solution and files do not store on the third-party servers. But we do have a selective sync option that provides sync files on demand. But to proceed files syncing both peers have to be online.

Thanks for your replie, i have the same problem

I know about Sync is not a cloud solution, but what I intended to mean was that the new "Google Drive File Stream" (that replaces Google Drive) does not work the same like local files. Google driver for this creates a map drive  G: and the files on it are not in the local PC. It resembles a network drive.

I am testing it and having some issues. Not all files are synced, some of them appears as locked ("file is busy") but they are not.
