Google's new way of backing up computer

It can be a challenge to keep all things safe, backed up, and organised, so today we're introducing Backup and Sync.

You probably keep your most important files and photos in different places—your computer, your phone, various SD cards, and that digital camera you use from time to time. It can be a challenge to keep these things safe, backed up, and organised, so today Google is introducing Backup and Sync. It’s a simpler, speedier and more reliable way to protect the files and photos that mean the most to you. This new tool replaces the existing Google Photos desktop uploader and Drive for Mac/PC.

Backup and Sync is an app for Mac and PC that backs up files and photos safely in Google Drive and Google Photos, so they're no longer trapped on your computer and other devices. Just choose the folders you want to back up, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Backup and Sync works for both Google Photos (download) and Google Drive (download).
