How to sync google photos to computer
2
Now that the ability to sync photos between photos and drive has been taken away, what is the solution to keep automatically downloading all google photos content to a computer, so that photos taken with a mobile device and backed up to google fotos are automatically available locally on a computer?

i.e. how to replace, what has been accomplished by the sync from google photos to the google drive "google photos" folder, which could be synced to a PC using the Backup and Sync Software?

If you are on modern Windows, the most simple solution is to install the OneDrive-app to pickup new pics from your phonecamera. Then they will become available in the Windows Filemanager automatically in the Camera-album. From there you can move them into your own backup folders to prevent bulkstorage in the OneDrive-cloud for which you need to pay soon. 
You also can do that with Dropbox, but then you also need a Dropbox-app on PC. 
This solution also is much more safe then the bad Google solution, because removals on OneDrive (or Dropbox) does not remove anything at Google Photos and on your phone (if still there). 

In Backup and Sync you should switch-off the syncing down in the Drive-section because the GP-folder is dead. But its actual content still is connected to Google Photos, so deletions can cause drama's. 
The uploadsection of B&S still can be used of course.

I'm not sure if I understand correctly, do you mean to say there is a way to have Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox automatically pick up photos from google photos?

By installing the (free) OneDrive app on your phone first and setting-up for camera-uploads. 
The Google Photos app can go on as usual. 
Good luck

Wow, incredible. I just paid for a year of Google One believing that its services were truly "One" and that it would integrate seamlessly with Google Photos. I want a copy of my photos on my PC too! Guess I'm going to have to go back to dropbox too.
