Backup Google Documents with Insync

Insync logoProfHacker loves Google Docs and backup plans. Today’s recommendation combines the two. Recently a post at Lifehacker made me aware of Insyc, free software that creates a folder on your hard drive and automatically syncs the documents in your Google Docs to it. Insync works in both directions—new documents added online are downloaded to your hard drive, and documents added to the synced folder are uploaded to Google Docs. I’ve only played with Insync for a few days, but it seems to work as advertised. I certainly feel better about adding content to Google Docs knowing I will have a local copy of what I create there. I can also use Insync to backup local documents to Google Docs. I look forward to testing Insync more thoroughly in the coming weeks.
