Overall Satisfaction with Google Backup and Sync

Used across the whole organization, but not mandatory. Up to individuals to utilize backup and sync options beyond our server/shared drives. Particularly useful for users who travel, work remotely, have multiple devices, etc. Personally, I have been using the product since before I worked for this company (before working full-time, I used it as a student as well) and I have always been happy with it.
  • Cloud storage
  • Fast updating
  • Works across devices
  • Easy to collaborate
  • Nothing in particular.
  • No cost to use (limited storage).
Google support is usually pretty good, never had an issue that required direct communication or support from Google.

Do you think Google Backup and Sync (discontinued) delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Google Backup and Sync (discontinued) again?


Works very well but due to Google based sign-in, not ideal for all users to use as the only backup option. The ideal situation is an additional back-up/cloud storage solution for users to sync between work servers and personal devices, especially if traveling, working remotely, or in other situations where accessing files across multiple devices may be useful.
