Head to our beta page and download the installer for your OS. If you're on Linux, head to our Linux Installation Guide.

Open the installer and run Insync. You'll see our thank-you page before proceeding to the setup.

1. Choose Add Google Drive and login with the Google Drive account you want to use with Insync.

2. Enter your Google Drive account. You can close this login tab/window and go to the Insync app window to continue the installation process. 

Insync will welcome you with a quick heads up before proceeding. 

3. Set your local default sync folder (Base Folder). Insync will suggest a folder for you, but you can choose a different location by clicking Change.  Do not use your existing sync folder as your Base Folder for Insync 3. This is to preserve your directory on v1.5.7. The beta version still has some missing features that will interfere with your v1.5.7 settings.

4. After choosing your Base Folder location, you have the option to sync your files by checking the boxes beside each file or just choose Skip syncing   for now.

IMPORTANT: If you select SKIP SYNCING, Insync will not create the Base Folder yet. 

NOTE: For Linux users using GNOME, make sure that you have installed AppIndicator (download it here).  

Syncing your Google Drive files

1. Click on your Google Drive account (headshot with Google Drive icon) on the top bar. Go to My Drive on the left-hand panel.

2. To sync multiple items, toggle the Selective Sync icon on the upper right-hand corner. Mark the boxes beside each file or folder you want to sync. 

The blue badge indicates that sync is in progress, while green checks mean sync has been completed. More on Selective Sync here.

3. To sync all of the files inside your My Drive, click Select all found above the first row of files, and click Sync
