If you use Google drive to store your data and access across your devices then you may know that there is no official client available for Linux. There are unofficial clients available like Grive, Insync, Grive-Tools and Syncdrive(which is no longer functional - obsoleted but was great client, released and maintained by Pear OS developers).
Basically client is a front-end of Google Drive which sync files between your account and computer. Today we will take a look at Insync which is another perfect unofficial clients which offers most, it is cross platform available for Linux, Windows, and Mac.
Install Grive and Grive Tools in Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic/14.04 Trusty/13.10 Saucy/13.04 Raring/12.10 Quantal/Linux Mint 17/16/15/14/other Ubuntu derivatives

Months back Pear OS developer created Syncdrive which was GUI for Grive, and its PPA was maintained by NoobsLab team. Unfortunately Pear OS has been sold and Syncdrive is no more supported, I received a lot of queries that it is not functioning anymore. So here is another unofficial great client for Google Drive, Grive command-line client was already available but the only thing 'GUI setup' was missing so thefanclub created Grive-Tools in order to made Grive setup easy for everybody. Basically it is front-end of Grive with some extended features. It has panel indicator and I tested it under these desktops: Unity, Mate, Gnome Classic, Lxde, and indicator doesn't work in other desktops Gnome Shell, Cinnamon, Xfce (I will report to maintainer).
Install SyncDrive 0.9 (Alternative Google Drive) with two Accounts support in Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy/Ubuntu 13.04 Raring/Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal/Ubuntu 12.04 Precise/Linux Mint 16/15/14/13/other Ubuntu derivatives

SyncDrive is front-end cleaned GUI which uses Grive as base. There is no official Google-Drive app for Linux at this moment. SyncDrive is designed by David who is creator of Pear OS.
SyncDrive can be setup easily and synchronize your files stored on your Google Drive in your /home/SyncDrive folder. It can automatically sync files and also shows storage used/remaining. SyncDrive has indicator which is made for easy access to SyncDrive.
