Google Drive backups everthing even files that you’re using, but the “Continuous Backup” option skips files that are in use.
If I started working on 9AM and did not turn off the software, say Indesign, my INDD file will be copied to GDrive server continuously. If Indesign crashes at 5PM, I can use the 4.45PM version on Gdrive server, but on my “My Cloud”, the newest version I have is yesterday’s version!!
And you know what ? The reason I bought a NAS is " capacity" (you can imagine the struggle if you use the 25GB Gdrive for backing up artworks, your storage will be full in a month or two).
My current solution is, let Gdrive backup my work ( slowly , via the internet connection) and let WD NAS backup just my archive folders ( quickly , but the ironic of that is I don’t need much speed for backing up archive folders).
Is it possible to add an option to ignore the in-use files check ? Just backup!! Thank you in advance.
