How to sync your Google Drive & OneDrive on Linux

Run Insync and Sign in via Google Drive or OneDrive

Download and install Insync above then sign in with your Google or Microsoft account.

Use Selective Sync 2.0 to select files for syncing

Once you've selected your files for syncing, click Sync and wait for them to finish!

Access synced files locally in your Base Folder

Once files are done syncing, you'll find them safely tucked in your Base Folder.

Synced files will be located in your Base Folder (Insync suggests a default location for this but you can change it anytime). Each account you add to Insync will have its own separate Base Folder for easy access.
