The only way to make local backups of the files so that they contain your actual data would be to convert them to a different format. Converting a gdoc to a Word file ...

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 ...

Picasa Web is "going away" and is being replaced by Google+ Photos. (In fact, if you go to your Google+ photos and to Picasa Web, you'll see that your photos are all in "both" places.) Furthermore, I wouldn't expect to see too many more updates to the Picasa desktop application. Google doesn't want to be making desktop apps anymore.) Further, since Gmail, ...

Although not officially supported, it is possible. To do so, you need to create "links" from the folders you want to sync to the Box.net folder.

Contrary to some beliefs, the NTFS filing ...

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.
