in this video I’m going to show you how
you could use Google’s new backup and
sync app to backup your photos on any
file on your Mac I’m going to put a link
in the description for you to download
this app and I’m going to go ahead and
download it and install it on my
Applications folder and let me go ahead
and launch the app for the first time
I’m just gonna click get started and go
through these and I’m going to log in to
my Google account now you need a Google
account to do this it’s basically gonna
use Google Drive and I’ll show you that
in a second so make sure you have a
Google account now you’ll have a Google
Drive which gives you free 15 gigabytes
of storage so I’m just going to log in
to my Google account and once I’m here
I’m going to have two options backup
photos or videos or all types of files
and I have some different files I want
to backup this is not just going to be
photos and videos for me but if that’s
all you have pick option one I’m going
to pick up backup all files press next
and here I could either choose what I
want to back up my desktop has large
file so I’m going to skip that for now
but I’m going to select other folders
and then you could choose folders and
select things that are not included by
default so I’m going to choose my music
folder here too and it’s going to give
me the different sizes of the folder so
I have some ideas on the back up side
and next I have to choose if I want to
high quality storage which is unlimited
storage or the original quality now the
original quality is going to be large
file sizes the way I captured videos or
files but you could always do high
quality for unlimited storage if you use
the second option is going to use that
amount you have on your Google Drive
basically the free Google Drive I have
has 15 gigs but I’m going to press
upgrade later to show you some of the
other options and how much they are so
as soon as you press start the backup
process begins and it’s right on top
here so on a Mac you could go right on
top to see the backup process and it
says restarting sync engine and it’s
going to start going and I’m just going
to say not now to this option and as you
can see on the bottom here the sync has
started and you see how many items are
going to be synced and it’s going to use
my Google Drive as storage so let me go
ahead and click upgrade just to show you
what’s happening here so I have 15 gigs
that’s the free plan that I have but you
could upgrade to a hundred gigs
for a couple bucks a month or you could
get a terabyte if you have a locked
backup but again I’m only using a few
gigs of my 15 gigs here I’m not backing
up a whole bunch so maybe you don’t need
it and if you click this other icon it’s
going to take you to Google photos and
you could see the photos that are
getting backed up right with this app
this process is going to take a little
while I got over 1500 files I’m trying
to think so you could let this happen in
the background and use your computer as
you usually do and all your files will
be backed up to Google Drive if you have
any problems or any questions please
