    I use Google Drive Sync as I do a lot of work in Google Drive - it's very helpful. It installed fine on my Surface Pro X and seems to work fine, but I'm worried that having it installed as a 32-bit running continuously in the background is going to kill battery/performance.

    Anyone have any insight on this?
    Anyone know of a third-party ARM app that will sync my Google Drive for me in place of this?

    Thanks all - I appreciate your wisdom!

    Do you find this personally? I imagine you can judge performance quickly, you said it works fine.

    If it existed I doubt it would be as good. Unless you've noticed poor battery I wouldn't worry about it personally.

    Good to know it works thanks.

    Dropbox doesn't work properly, but this is because it installs into File Explorer directly.
