Insync Comments

For the frustrated of the Google Drive sync program

OK, let's face it : for serious users (with lots of files, some of them large) of Google Drive, when it comes to synchronising your files in the cloud with a local hard drive, Google Drive's synchronisation program is a piece of crap (at least on Windows).

On the other hand, InSync just works. Well worth its price. That's how Google should have made its sync app.


Insync price

Although Insync may be a little bit expensive, it is worth it. Insync is way better the official client.
However you can get 5$ discount for both of us with my refer link:

Not using it. Too expensive for what it does, especially because I need to use multiple accounts. I use overgrive which is a 5th of the price.
