I have an employer-provided Google Drive account with almost 1 TB of data on. Basically everything I work on is on the Google Drive. It functions as a sort of live backup. Also, I'm running Ubuntu.
Now, back in the days on Windows, there was a Google Drive client that synced selected folders to my hard drive, which worked great, because I didn't have to wait for the client to download every single file when opening them.
Currently on Ubuntu, I'm using google-drive-ocamlfuse which is real steady, but extremely slow.
So I was thinking about using a syncing tool, e.g. unison, to sync files from my google-drive-ocamlfuse folder to a regular folder, so I can access files on the fly, but still have them uploaded to my Google Drive "live".
Is this a great idea, or a prescription for disaster?
