Aaron Honeycutt – 2016-05-16 14:42:54-0400mm I wonder how you use it in Dolphin though.Joe Philipps – 2016-05-16 19:19:10-0400Is it better than google-drive-ocaml-fuse?  https://github.com/astrada/google-drive-ocamlfuseKeith I Myers – 2016-05-16 19:29:57-0400+Joe Philipps – This allows for file sync for offline access, not just a mountJoe Philipps – 2016-05-16 19:42:32-0400oh…so it operates more like Carbonite, iDrive, all those backup services, except uses your Google Drive.  Gotcha.  Pretty much solving a different problem.Keith I Myers – 2016-05-16 19:43:20-0400I would not call it a backup – think of it like DropBoxJoe Philipps – 2016-05-16 20:00:40-0400Oh, golly…yeah, I see what it did now…it started to download 9 or so gigs I have stored up there, not quite what I had in mind.  So I put in “insync quit”.  I was thinking of the idea that you modify a file locally, it gets sync’ed up to GD, but it (at least by default) goes both directions.  It could be very useful though.
