I use Google Drive for many purposes, and one of them is backuping some stuff.
Unfortunately (for me) - I see all the documents in the 'backup' directory also in the Google Docs, which I don't really want to.
Is there any way to tell Google Docs to not read this directory?
This is what I do:
- I have some directory on my local machine, it's called "backup" and it contains some .doc, .ods etc files.
- I upload them to the google drive
- Google Docs reads this directory and later I can see the files in Google Docs.
And I would love to stop the last thing - I don't want to see my 'backup' directory in Google Docs
Or maybe is there some kind of a trick, one which comes to my mind is to compress the entire 'backup' folder before uploading to the Google Drive, hoping that the service will not read it, but I would like to avoid that.
