Does Backupify for Google Apps back up Google Photos?


The Backupify application does not back up Google Photos (and videos) by default. But, we do have a workaround for backing up Google Photos!

To achieve this, you can change a Google setting to back up Google Photos data under the Google Drive umbrella. Once under the Drive umbrella, Backupify will back up that data.

To set this up:

  • Go to
  • On the right, click the gear icon > Settings.
  • Next to "Automatically put your Google Photos into a folder in My Drive," check the box and then Done.

For more on making this change, check out this Google help page.
