After a bit of a delay following its big announcement last month, Google has finally released a tool that allows you to use its free cloud storage to backup all of the files on your Mac or Windows computer.

The new Backup and Sync feature lets you safely store content from your computer's internal hard drive, or from other devices like memory cards or USB devices, in Google Drive.
It's an easy and efficient way to protect your files and photos by backing them up, as long as they're in Google Drive and Google Photos. The tool will recreate your desktop folder ecosystem directly in Drive instead of having to create an entirely new network of folders.
"Just choose the folders you want to back up, and we'll take care of the rest," Google wrote on its blog.
While free Drive accounts only offer 15 GB for Backup and Sync, you can pay for more storage to ensure all of your files are backed up.
