- Google launched its Backup and Sync tool for PC and Mac this week
- You can use it to store your files and photos on Google Drive
- We'll show you how to use Backup and Sync now
Google just made it incredibly easy to back up everything on your computer with its new "Backup and Sync" tool for PC and Mac.
Backing up is important — you've heard it a thousand times — but Google's new solution also makes it easier to access your files on the go, or from a new computer in case yours ever bites the dust. It relies on the cloud, so you don't have to worry about buying an external hard drive.
Before we begin, download Google Backup and Sync from Google's website. Now let me show you how to use it.
100GB of storage is $1.99 a month (or $19.99 a year) and 1TB is $9.99 per month (or $99.99 a year.) It's not the cheapest on the market (Microsoft OneDrive provides more space for less, and Apple charges 99 cents for 50GB; $2.99 for 200GB and $9.99 for 1TB) but it's a great new solution that's a breeze to use.
