Google recently released a new version of Google Drive that backs up and syncs the files on your computer. This is a great option for keeping your data safe and utilizing the 15TB (it's a lot of space) of cloud-based storage available. We recommend backing up your data to an external space (flash drive, external drive, cloud-based storage, etc.) This is a FREE option for backing up your data.
Simply visit Google Backup and Sync and follow the steps to begin the sync. You can select the folders you wish to backup and Google will do the rest. As you make changes to those folders, Google will see the changes and automatically sync to the most recent version.
