Google drive not updating files
Appropriately named Backup and Sync, it’s a quick and effective tool to store your important files in the cloud. If you’re a heavy Google user, you’re probably already aware of Google’s other sync tools: Google Drive and Google Photos Uploader.Those have both now been rolled into Backup and Sync, so you can control all of your files, videos, images, and more from one app.For details on how revisions are retained, see the Drive Help Center.
It should download pretty quickly, and you’ll just need to launch the installer when it’s finished.
Essentially, this new tool will allow you to sync your Google Drive cloud storage with your computer—be that the entire Drive or just specific files and folders.
These are then treated as local files on the computer, so your important stuff is always up to date on every computer you own (and in the cloud).
The only exception here are Google Docs files (Sheets, Docs, Slides)—those are still online-only, as Backup and Sync will not download them for offline access.
It will, however, put icons in the Google Drive folder so you can double-click them as if they were normal documents (you’ll just need an internet connection to view and edit them.) Backup and Sync also adds one more tool to the equation: the option to back up specific folders from your PC or Mac to your Google Drive.
