If you get an error, like no access to your Drive, its most likely permission was not granted, by you, to access the account (called Contacts by Android) or local storage when you opened the App. If this happens, uninstall Drive Download, re-install it, and allow all the permission requests. The App needs permission to work.
More About File Synchronization
File synchronization (file syncing) in computing is the process of updating the data in one or more locations using certain rules –
- two-way peer-to-peer file sync (sync),
- one-way backup to the cloud (backup)
- one-way download from the cloud (mirror).
Drive Download is a one-way file synchronization download from the cloud app where you control the data in a folder in the cloud and Drive Download automatically downloads it to one or many devices, checking regularly and updating any changed files.
This is a simple way to download new audiobooks to your phone, download movies to your Android TV or download instructional videos to your tablet without needing to plug the devices together or to do manual file transfers. And because you manage the files in the Cloud on your laptop or desktop, it’s easy to add or delete files. Just add or delete files in the source file on your laptop and the files will automatically be updated on your phone, Android TV or tablet.
Here’s an important note. Imagine you have a folder full of audiobooks in the cloud and on your phone. Remember there are 3 file sync methods.
- Two-way peer-to-peer sync treats both as peers. If you make changes on either the cloud or the phone, it updates the other one with those changes. So if you delete an audiobook from one, it gets deleted from the other.
- One-way backup to the cloud (backup) treats the phone as primary and the cloud as secondary. It only updates the cloud to be the same as the phone, thereby creating a backup. However, changes made on the backup in the cloud are not made to the phone. (For example, if your backup was wiped out on the cloud, it wouldn’t then update your phone by wiping it out too, which is what makes it a backup!)
- One-way download from the cloud (mirror) considers the cloud to be primary and the phone to be secondary. It only updates the phone to be the same as the cloud, thereby creating a mirror image of what is in the cloud. However, changes made on the phone are not made to the cloud. (For example, if you accidentally deleted an audiobook you were listening to on your phone, it wouldn’t then update the cloud by deleting the copy in the cloud too. Instead, it would update your phone by putting the deleted audiobook back on your phone. When mirroring, change the contents in the cloud not on the device, because if you make the changes on the device, the next download will change it back to ensure that the device contents mirrors the cloud)
