Grsync and Google-drive; 1-18-21 @ 08:53 CT
Grsync works fine for backing up as long as I’m not backing up a folder in my Zorin 15.3 desktop to my “On-line account” like Google. So, I have been using Grsync for backing up all my data on local drives since year 2018. But, I’m getting error-message when backing up a folder on to my Google-drive.
I get the same error-message when using Ubuntu 20.04.1 also. Zorin 12.4 does not allow me to even have an “On-line account”; so I don’t use Zorin 12.4 for this purpose.
This is what happens when I try to back up one folder (containing several folders and files) from my Zorin 15.3 (or Ubuntu) desktop to my Google-drive:
On “Dry run” it works fine and I get no error message. But on “Full run (go!)”, Grsync still does the job fine but shows errors at the end for some unknown reason. Perhaps, Grsync is not getting the flag from Google-drive that it is looking for! See the pics below showing “Dry run”, “Full run”, and the “Rsync Output”.
