Google Drive Adds Selective Sync

google_drive_logo_3963

Google Drive recently added selective sync to its desktop clients. I am focusing more on GDrive than on Dropbox lately, but one feature missing was the ability to selectively sync the data. It was sync all or nothing. It is a problem if I have lots of data and I want to sync data with my smartphone, whose storage space is at a premium.

Starting version 1.29, we can now choose to selectively sync. To get to this option, open the client and go Preferences.

The default setting is to sync everything, so you will need to enable the selective sync option if you wish to use it. From there, you can check the folders you want synchronized.

Reminders in Google Calendar

Reminders in Google Calendar come to the web

Last December, Google announced the addition of reminders to Google Calendar. At that time, the reminders were only available on mobile apps. This week, the reminders come to the web version of GCal.

According to the post on Gmail blog, here is what you get:

Reminders stick around – If a reminder isn’t completed, it will appear at the top of your calendar until you mark it done.

Reminders work across Google – Reminders you create in Inbox, Keep, and the Google app will also show in Google Calendar.

Reminders sync with mobile – Reminders created in mobile show up on the web and vice versa. So you can stay on track from just about anywhere.

I am especially intrigued by the integration of Keep. I gotta go check it out.
