Problem signing in with google backu and sync


 

To all listers
Does anyone know an accessible way to sign in and use google backup and sync same as we did with Google Drive?
I signed in, but the program take me to a web page with a lot of link to google services, but I didn't find any link for closing that and use google drive, when I exit that window, i also logged out
my account.
Using Windows 10 pro 64 bit, and the latest version of NVDA
Any help would be appreciated

Hello,

I'm using Backup and Sync with NVDA and Windows 10 Professional 64 bit, without any problem. I only need to sign in the first time after a major update, after which it signs me in automatically each time I restart. The sign in process is flawless as well. I don't know what to say, perhaps trying multiple browsers might solve the problem?

Good luck,

Vlad.

In fact I've failed to update it to the new version. it complains it is not supported but when you download the stub it goes into the install and says no update available.
The whole program is a mess.
I think it would be nice to find a cloud system that just works without just using the web, for all machines from xp to 10. my feeling is that nobody has actually checked what things will work on and certainly not their accessibility.

I did send them a message asking for the old software to still have access as I feel this removal of support is not based on a fundamental change in their protocol, it is based on dogma and they need to try to get folk to pay for accounts, hence the extra abilities of backing up other folders.

In my experience, GDrive is more accessible compared to Dropbox, especially the web interface. I use OneDrive as well, but not that often. They all have issues from time to time, far from being perfect, we do agree on that point.

I think the problem is that there are believe it or not many people asking me the question, I want a cloud storage that works on xp.
From my recent tests on a Pentium 3 machine running it all either fall over with an error oon install or claim they do not support it.
Google drive was working fine until just a few days ago in the pre back up and sync version but they have disabled it now. I'm guessing its security related not anything else.
Pity, as old XP machines do have usage left in them and it seems annoying to consign them to the great bin of progress for what are basically spurious reasons of no software support.
