How do I move from Google Backup and Sync to Google Drive?

Google has ended support of Google Backup and Sync and we have moved to Google Drive to backup your computer.  Click the link below for instructions to move from Backup and Sync to Google Drive.

GB&S to Google Drive

In October of 2021, Google discontinued the use of their Google Backup and Sync program to back up our computers. If you did not yet make the transition from Google Backup and Sync to Google Drive, then your computer stopped backing up in October 2021. If you need assistance please use your Loyola email account and email support@loyno.edu.

How do I verify or add folders backed up on Google Drive?

When we moved from Google Backup and Sync to Google Drive, you were asked to select the folders being backed up.  If you would like to verify that selection or add more folders to the backup, click the link below.

How to setup Google 2-Step Verification

Google 2-Step Verification is a way to increase the security of your email account.  All faculty, staff and students need to login into their email account through the Chrome browser in order to enroll.  Enrolling in 2-step verification through Outlook or Mac Mail is not possible.  All Outlook or Mac Mail users need to access their email accounts via the Chrome browser and go to gmail.com.

It is required that everyone enroll by turning on the verification process themselves.  By signing into your Gmail account via the Chrome browser, you will be prompted to setup your 2-step verification, if you have not already enrolled.  You will be given the option to enroll or to defer the process until later. If you choose to "Do This Later", you will be prompted to enroll again at another time.  However, if you wait until after the designated deadline, you will be locked out of your account.  You will then need to call the Help Desk at X2255 and leave a message to open a ticket.  As this will take time to resolve, we recommend that you enroll your account right away.  The deadline will be announced in an email.

Note:  If you are not prompted to enroll and wish to verify that your account is already enrolled in 2-step verification, then click here.

When you select enroll, you will be asked to enter your cell phone number.  Once this is entered you will be able to specify whether you would like to receive your code via text message or phone call.  If you do not have a cell phone, you can put in a land line number and select phone call.  Google will telephone that number within minutes.
