I noticed that uploading files to Google Drive does not preserve their Finder Tags. As a photographer who uses them avidly, this poses a bit of a problem.

Finder tags are stored as extended attributes, which seemingly don't sync with Google Drive. I uploaded a photo which was tagged to Google Drive and downloaded it again, only to see that all of its tag information had been lost.

Is it possible to back this extended file information up with Google Drive?
