How to sync 2 accounts ?

Postby itdaboyz » Wed Mar 09, 2016 11:38 pm

Hi,

I would like to sync my account and my girlfriend's account on my NAS to store our files safely.
Is there a way to add 2 accounts on Google Drive app ? Or install the app twice ?

Thanks !

The drive app can only sync one account per adm account. In ur case use 2 adm accounts, doesn't mean u have use both, the admin can have access to the folders. If not then no go for ur situation.

hehe, Really wish this forum had "Like" options like some I use. That's what I gathered from your previous statement lanimul, that the account needed to be in the ADM for each user. Just as it would need to be set up for each user on a Windows Machine, too....

Yes, after installed Google Drive, simply grant the specified users the application rights (under ADM web -> Access Control -> Application Privilege -> Google Drive). Both your girlfriend account and yours on NAS can synchronize data independently. Of course, you'll need to setup account credentials separately by login to ADM web page and launch Google Drive.

And even if I never login in the ADM account of my girlfriend, the sync will work in background ? If so then it's ok for me :)
Thanks for your help lanimul & orion.

I still wonder if maybe with some tweaks I could install 2 times Google Drive and each time with a different Google account on the same ADM account.

Not sure you would want to try reinventing the wheel. Make a new ADM account and have done with it. She doesn't need admin access, just RW access tot eh google drive folders for her account. Lock down the rest of the permissions and no worries.

Ok it works, thank you. :)
I have a bug, but it's not related to this setup, I'll open a new thread.
