Google Drive is a cloud storage service for anyone with a Google account. If you want those files also on your computer, you've been using Google Backup and Sync.
Backup and Sync will stop working on Oct. 1 and you will be prompted to install Google Drive for Desktop.
Just like its triangle icon, Google Drive for Desktop has 3 distinct purposes:
- Sync files from Drive in the Cloud down to your computer
- Sync files from your computer up to Drive in the cloud
- Upload Photos from your computer to Google Photos
