Yeah, google drive sucks in that aspect. It doesn't save local copies of most files that do not count towards your limit (mostly docs, sheets, etc) anywhere in our hard drive. Not that we can easily access anyway. Also, even its "offline" feature, while it seem to work some times, it often fails. Oddly enough, video files (smaller than 15 min they say) also ...

If you use Google Drive, you can connect the two so that everything in Google Photos is also copied to Google Drive. If you use Google Drive sync, then they'll all be on your hard drive.

Currently (April 2021), https://takeout.google.com/ has options to either perform a one-time export or to schedule exports every 2 months for a year (6 archives). The archive can be delivered as a download link via email or added to Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive/Box. However, I have failed to get the scheduled exports to cloud drives to actually work.

There is no right combination of settings. The Google Photos upload checkbox (in the Backup and Sync preferences) is a blanket toggle: it affects all the selected local backup/sync folders. So if you want to backup Drive-only files, you need to leave it unchecked and continue manually uploading your images to the Photos app. As of yet, the B&S client ...

If it is a large folder, downloading as a zip from Google will often time out due to Google converting all the Gdoc files and then splitting all your files in that folder into 2GB Zip files. (Have done many times before) I would recommend installing backup and Sync onto your new Macbook Pro, not selecting any folders on the first step (My Macbook) - this ...

First of all, fixing it so that just adding .json to the end of the url is on our to-do list, so you could just wait for that to be fixed. However... If you take a url like https://trello.com/b/<id>/<slug> and turn it into a url like https://trello.com/1/boards/<id>?fields=all&actions=all&action_fields=all&actions_limit=...

According to Google Plus, pics that are automatically backed up, at a "standard" resolution (not full-size, but still quite good at 2048x2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes), are all unlimited. "You can store an unlimited number of standard size photos on Google+." and "You can upload an unlimited number of videos that are less than 15 minutes long and ...

Sign in to TripIt and go the Publishing Options page, and ensure the Calendar Feed is turned on. Now hit Subscribe, and copy and paste the URL shown. Replace webcal with http, ...

If your backup archive contains file types Gmail doesn’t accept, you cannot send the file. The file size limit is 25 MB, so that shouldn’t be the problem here. Use Google Drive for your backups. This is included in your Google account, and BackWPup supports that too, at least the pro version.

They're only counted once. If you choose to upload original files, they will use your drive quota, while "High Quality" (re compressed by Google) photos don't use quota. Both could appear in Drive and Photos.

Since you said that the message isn't in her Drafts folder and she saw the "saved" notification - that might suggest the message is in her Deleted folder. When replying/forwarding a message in the Deleted folder, a draft is saved, but isn't shown in Draft folder. You need to find the original message, open it, there you'll see the draft.

The saved label is not click-able, usually to find your message go to drafts definitely you will find it there, i just checked it, even if you had closed the browser and if you then saw saved notification that means that the message already has been saved to Drafts, good luck.
