Windows 8 and Google Drive

For all those pounding their heads against the wall trying to sync shared files on Google Drive for Windows 8 there is an easy fix I found today.

All you need to do to get things sync’ed up is go into drive on the web select all on the files in the shared with me section and drag and drop to My Drive. This will now sync all the shared files to My drive and to the Windows 8 client.

I have to test next if that has to be done every time a new file is created and shared with my Windows 8 user but figured I would record hear and share.
