On Windows, Google Drive has security settings that prevents Backblaze from backing it up.
Note: The Mac version of Google Drive can be backed up by Backblaze with no settings changes.
- Navigate to C:\Users\YourUser\, right click the Google Drive directory and choose Properties. Note: Do not perform these steps on the Google Drive shortcut (it will show as Google Drive.lnk when you choose Properties on it).
- In the Properties window, choose the Security tab and click Edit.
- Click Add.
- In the Object Name field, enter SYSTEM (all caps) and click OK. Click OK to dismiss the Permissions window, and then finally click OK to dismiss the Google Drive properties.
- During the next scheduled scan, Backblaze should find the Google Drive folder and back it up. You can also force an immediate scan.
