Hello. I bought SyncDocs and I am trying it out. I read through the FAQ but I am still unsure. AFter I installed it I had a Google Drive Folder on my computer AND a My Google Docs folder. I was expecting only one of the two. Did I set it up wrong? Or is this right and I am supposed to only work through the My Google Docs folder?

Hi, if you already have Google's Google Drive client installed, then you can tell Syncdocs to sync that. You can do this by changing the Folder to sync in the Preferences menu to your Google Drive folder. This will then sync your existing Google Drive folder.
Just exit the Google Google Drive client app, so only Syncdocs is syncing that folder to Google.
Thank you for the reply Phil. So the "Google's Google Drive Client" you are referring to is the Google Drive Folder I have on my desktop, right? Should I rather get rid of it and just work with the Syncdocs folder? Currently my Syncdocs Preferences are saying C:\Users\Capital\Google Drive\ in the Folders Tab under Syncdocs Google Drive folder location.
You can get rid of it if you want.
If you have lots of files already synced with Google's Drive client, just point Syncdocs to the same folder. This way, Syncdocs will see that the files are the same and won't sync them again.
Just don't run Syncdocs and Google Drive on the same account at the same time.
I only had a few test files on Google Drive. I deleted the Google Drive Desktop Client following these steps:
1.Click the Google Drive icon in your system tray.
2.Select Preferences from the menu.
3.When the Google Drive Preferences window opens, choose Disconnect account.
4.Go to your PC's Start menu, and select Control Panel.
5.Then, select Programs, followed by Programs and Features.
6.Select Google Drive, and then click Uninstall.
In my Preferences for Syncdocs under Folders under Syncdocs Google Drive folder location, I now have: "C:\Users\Capital\Desktop\Drive Synced Folder\". Is this the correct setup?
Thanks for the help.
Yes, that looks correct. That's a good location for your root folder. You can put it anywhere else though, too, if that suits you better.
Thanks for the help Phil. It seems to be working well now.
