    Thanks for the post. However I see that Google drive for WordPress plugin is no longer updated.

    So I’ve decided to try another free backup option – UpdraftPlus plugin.

    The trickiest thing (especially for newbies) is to set up Google Drive to work with any plugin. So I’ve created a free video (as well as detailed text & screenshots) tutorial which are super easy to follow to make UpdraftPlus plugin work with GoogleDrive.

    Hope people will find it helpful
