> item 1 to update.
> google-backup.sh  and google-restore.sh
> google-backup.sh  will backup files that are described in
> /usr/local/etc/backup.conf, compress them in a tar file and upload them to
> your Google drive.
> google-restore.sh will present a list in several ways where you can select
> files to download from your Goggle drive.
> Both of these scripts and the gdrive commands are described in the howto.
> Users can directly use the gdrive commands to upload and download files but
> since the commands are not always conventional you must refer to the
> documentation and link in the howto.
> gdrive often reports errors about exceeding rates, etc. when issuing manual
> commands. In these cases just "up arrow" and repeat the command as many
> times as it takes to complete. It usually takes no more than 2 or 3 times.
> This is hidden in the backup and restore scripts but you will see some
> delay at times for uploads and downloads.
