Google has announced a new feature for its Drive app users on Mac and desktop, that allows them to select which folders or sub-folders they want to sync. Google, in a blog post said that the update will roll out over the next few weeks.
Google, in the post explained that, while the Drive can store terabytes, users might run out of space on their computer’s hard drive. “Fortunately, you can now select which folders or sub-folders you want to sync — and deselect the ones you don’t,” Google added.
The folders that a users deselects, or choose not to sync will removed from their desktop but still be available on the Google Drive. “And Drive shows you the size of each folder, so you’ll know how much space you’re freeing up,” the blog post said.
Also, files and folders can be easily moved or deleted after they are synced. But Google warns users that moving or deleting items with shared files can cause others to lose access.
