[How To] Use Google Docs Like Dropbox To Sync Google Documents Automatically With Multiple Computers Across OS

by Rohit Khurana on December 21, 2011


Today I have got an application named insync which will help you to sync your Google docs just like you can sync your data on Dropbox. The application will act as an intermediate between Google Docs and local folder where the documents are stored. The application also provides the file synchronization, collaboration and sharing options. The application will provide you two way synchronization, you only have to connect your Google account with this application and rest will be taken care by it. The application will also provide you the option to sync all the Google Apps accounts so that it can make a data back up of all your Google Accounts data.

The application has a web based document management system for Google Docs in order to view, share, sync up and sync down. The application allows you to select the document ,share it with other people, generate its public link to make it available to everyone and restore the previous file versions of a particular document. All of this can be done using the insync option in the Windows context menu.
