Google photo sync? No way to have a copy of my photos on my HDD automatically anymore? 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 9 Upvotes
As we may all know Google photos will not sync to DRIVE (google drive) anymore. google say this is to stop the confusion, but i am no confused. whenever u take a photo with ur phone it uploads to google PHOTOS. and then will also create a copy in your Google DRIVE(i doubt google uses double the storage as if u delete a photo from google photos in drive also deleted. but there is a feature where u auto download a copy from google DRIVE to your HARD DRIVE. dont' get confused there.
it was a perfect feature, as 99% of the website/email when u need to upload a photo, it can only select a file from your LOCAL HARD DRIVE, and not cloud storage.as since google don't make a copy on ur local disk anymore, its soo bloody annoying to download the photos i want into a zip file and unzip it. are we back to the 90's ??
im happy that my photos/files are safe with Google but is bloody annoying when need to do anything from my Laptop as PC features do not support select photos from Google Photos directly, it must be on ur local HARD DRIVE! is there anyway to get around it... or should i start using Microsoft OneDrive from now ??
