Is there a free tool that will sync files between my PC and Google Storage, similar to Dropbox?

Why not use dropbox and store your dropbox folder in your google storage folder ? –  Sirex Feb 16 '11 at 10:16

Are you talking about syncing local folders on computers (ie. 2 or more computers with sync like Dropbox) or just a way to store local documents online (something like Mozy) easily?

Either way, Gladinet 3.0 was just released and is a great tool. There is also a Python script to backup your docs to Google automatically.

Thanks @tushark. The free version of Gladinet has a limit on how many files can be synced. Do you know if there's a free app that doesn't allows unlimited file syncing? –  Seth P. Feb 16 '11 at 6:16

There is Syncany:

Syncany is an open-source cloud storage and filesharing application. It allows users to backup and share certain folders of their workstations using any kind of storage, e.g. FTP, Amazon S3 or Google Storage.

It supports file manager integration and versioning.
The great thing about is that it encrypts the data locally. This is important if you don't want Google to snoop around in your files.
