How can I backup files to Google drive?

Recently, I purchased a couple hundred gigabytes of Google drive storage to backup my files. So I can easily retrieve my data if unexpected data loss disaster caused by certain reasons happens. But I don’t know how to backup files to Google drive. Some friends told me that I can do it with the service for "sync" or collaboration. But I am wondering if I delete the files stored locally whether or not it will disappear from my Google cloud storage. It is really important for me! Please help!

Google drive is a cloud storage that allows you to sync your data. So you can access your files on different devices or share your data easily with others. However, many people think that it can be used as a backup tool. They mistakenly think that data sync is data backup. But it is not the case. When you sync your data to Google drive, it will change on Google drive at the same time when you changing it locally. But if you backup your files, the backup file won’t change when you change the files locally. So it is two different things. But don’t worry! Even you can not directly backup your data with Google drive, you can still backup files to Google drive with special backup and recovery software. This page will introduce you the detailed guide.
