Google Drive Music Sync
A sync utility for Google Drive and your USB Devices
Ideally, you have a bunch of files on Google Drive, and you want to sync them to a USB Device. The current Google Drive client for Mac does not support this- probably for good reason. Google Drive's provided utility is aimed at replicating files that change with your Drive. For example, your My Documents folder might as well be a Google Drive folder.
However, media files are generally read-only. This tool is meant to augment the official Google tool when you have a tiny laptop and a large USB device.
This software is in alpha and may not work as expected!
Modes and Options
There are a few different modes and options that Mass Media Sync supports.
|One Way||one-way drive usb||drive = drive, usb = drive ∪ usb|
|One Way w/ delete||one-way drive usb -d||drive = drive, usb = drive|
|Two Way||two-way drive usb||drive = drive ∪ usb, usb = drive ∪ usb||Yes!|
|Two Way w/ delete||two-way drive usb -d||drive = drive ∩ usb, usb = drive ∩ usb|
Add the contents of one device to the other.
One Way w/ Delete
Replace the contents of one device with the other.
Combine the contents of each device onto each device.
Two Way w/ Delete
Remove any content not on all devices from all devices.
|Delete||-d, --delete||Deletes "extra" files. Behavior depends on the mode. See above.|
|Cache||-c, --cache||Caches any Drive libraries being synced. WARNING: any changes to cached drive libraries made through the standard Google Drive client will not be reflected upon sync! Use with caution.|
|Clean Unicode||--clean-unicode||Some Unicode strings cause issues with creating directories. This will go through and set all file/folder names to their "clean" equivalent.|
To provide sync functionality, several set operations are implemented:
|Intersection||Elements such that the element exists in both/all sets.||Many||Partial|
|Union||Elements such that the element exists in any/either set.||Many||Partial|
|Subtraction||The elements of a set such that no element exists in any/another set.||Two||Partial|

Currently the Google Drive folder containing your files is hardcoded so you probably want to change it. The directory structure is hard coded as well. I'm working on fixing this eventually to be more abstract.
