Each user will be allowed a 15-GB capacity for photos and videos from cameras, SD cards and USB devices.

“Just choose the folders you want to back up, and we’ll take care of the rest,” Google described the feature in a blog post.

Backup and Sync is now available—free of charge—through Google Drive and Google Photos.

A paid premium option is also available for users seeking for a bigger storage capacity.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
