Is there a way to have the Google Drive folder inside Apple Time Capsule ?

Can anyone please point out some directions. I keep getting:

1) I initially go to google drive application setup; 2) I then select a folder on my time capsule;

3) I get:

"The folder /somepath/Google Drive can't be used. Please select another folder."

Please advice

I've done that. No avail. – MEM Feb 28 '13 at 13:10
Please include the things you have tried. What exactly did you do? What does "to no avail" mean? How did it fail? What error messages or strange behavior are you getting? – terdon Feb 28 '13 at 17:03
The error message is there already. :/ I will precise the steps. – MEM Feb 28 '13 at 17:47
The error message is not there, it may depend on the specific path. How are you giving the Time Capsule's address? How is it mounted? Smb? AFP? NFS? What Operating System are you using? – terdon Mar 1 '13 at 13:23
