I've set up photos and videos automatic backup on the Google Drive's iOS app following these instructions and I took a photo using my iPhone to test it.

After a while I could find the picture and open it on the "Recent" tab on the website. But I don't know where it is stored (the name of the folder). I also have Google Drive installed on my mac and I couldn't find it there either.

Does anyone know where can I find it?


I may be wrong, as I don't have Google Drive set to back up Photos, but I think you need to access them from the Google Photos website or mobile app, not from Drive.

I will do a little experimenting, but I believe this is the case.


Yes, it appears they do not show in a folder in Drive by default. You have to enable the feature to mirror them in Drive. Otherwise, access them through Google Photos or Google+.
