I've recently switched from Windows to Linux, and have tried keeping certain things similar. Mainly, I work in LaTeX a lot, and have stored all of my work in Google Drive. With how Google Drive on windows works, this was at best imperfect (if while Latex was compiling a document google drive tried to sync, issues would arise), but it worked pretty well for the most part.

Now, I've switched over to a chromebook with GalliumOs, and have tried using Google Drive via OCamlfuse. Unfortunately, this seems to make my compile times much longer (at least 10 seconds even for a simple document). This makes this no longer an option for me, so it seems like I'll need to work locally. Is there a way to still sync my files (even if it's only much more infrequently, or I need to trigger a sync manually) with google drive without storing the files in the directory that OCamlfuse mounts?

    What you are after is to be able to work from several machines on the same documents, correct? I'm pretty confident you are after a CVS (e.g. git). Google drive is not meant to share source code between machines, a CVS is designed for that. – grochmal Sep 26 '16 at 1:47

    @grochmal after looking around, using Git does seem to be the best solution. – Mark Sep 26 '16 at 1:48
