The Easiest Way to Sync Google Drive on Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, and Fedora

    Accessing your Google Drive on Linux may take some effort especially if you're new to the OS (and the Terminal). Even for experienced Linux users, syncing your Google Drive takes a few steps too many.

    Insync changes that.

    It's easy to use and it doesn't compromise performance as it gives you full control as to how you manage and use your files (i.e. our new and improved Ignore Rules works similarly to the .gitignore syntax).

    We could keep telling you how easy it is to sync your Google Drive on Linux but why not show you instead? And yes, Insync supports Google Drive syncing on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, and Fedora.
