Hi, Is there a way to have 2 - two identical copies of an excel spreadsheet in different folders on the computer (Windows 10)?  Reason is that one will reside in Google Drive and the other in My Documents folder.  I would like to sync them so that any changes made on either one, gets updated on the other document.  Is that possible?  If so, please tell me how. Thanks

You can have a Google Drive Folder on your desktop which is synced to Google Drive. You just need to download the Google Drive app.

I have just changed to a new laptop, downloaded the app and logged in and all my files were available. Open and work on a file from the Google Drive folder to work with it. You don't need a folder in documents.
