Backing up a Google Drive Account
All steps described earlier are also actual for using your Google Drive account as a data source for backing it up. Select the “Google Drive” feature as a data source on a Step 2, then set up a new configuration or use an existing connection like described before.
Note: You cannot back up internal Google Apps files, such as documents or tables, by this way. This option is voluntarily restricted to provide as much protection for these data as possible, since the Google cloud protects this content by its own means.
