    It's a good point too, as we don't know where exactly Google Drive folder has been created At any rate, if it's a single user PC, permissions don't matter.

    The test I've been doing on my computer with the Downloads folder relocated into Google Drive folder has worked without any problems for the last few days. I expect to set it up on my friend's computer next week.
