How to sync your Google Drive on Ubuntu

No command-line expertise needed! Just download Insync and you're good to go.
Sign in Google Drive

Sign in Google Drive on your Ubuntu machine

Once you sign in, go through the onboarding process and set the location of your Base Folder. This is where all synced files will be located in your local machine running Ubuntu.

Note: you can change the location of your Base Folder at any time.

Select the Google Drive files you want to sync

After onboarding, you'll see the contents of your Google Drive. To select files and folders for syncing, click the Cloud Selective Sync icon on the upper right.

You'll now be able to select specific files and folders for syncing! When you're done, click Sync.
