Google Backup & Sync - changes upload ok but they don't migrate to other machines 0 Recommended Answers 46 Replies 44 Upvotes

Google Backup & Sync – When I make changes to files, the files upload to the Google cloud without a problem, but those files don't automatically migrate to other machines sharing the same folders (using my same username). If I stop B&S and restart it on the other machines, the sync works perfectly; but that isn’t really a solution.
I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled B&S.
I renamed the Google Drive folder first, forcing a total resync.
I changed a file on my laptop 30 minutes ago and the change has still not appeared on my desktop computer.
The above description is true of both my laptop and my desktop. A change on either one will upload to the cloud right away, but the changed files won't be copied to the other machine(s).
I don’t know what else to try.
