Google Chrome OS Files app can now backup camera files to Google Drive

Google Chrome OS is getting a new feature enabling easier backups to Google Drive.

Users already had the option to backup photos and videos to Google+ Photos. The Files app in Chrome OS would now offer a quick option to upload content in DCIM folder to Google Drive.

Backing up your media device’s photos and videos has never been easier thanks to the experimental Cloud Backup feature in the Files App since the last Dev Update. Insert any removable media device such as a USB key or a SD Card which contains at its root the famous DCIM folder. Then, navigate to this folder and notice the “cloud” icon at the very top right corner. Click on it and you’re done! Your photos and videos will be automatically synced to your Google Drive under a newly created photos folder.
