I have a large amount of files in Google Drive, which I need to organize by different criteria. I'm planning to use the feature to add the same file to multiple folders (sort of like hard links in a local file system).
However, I'm not sure what will happen to my synced computer. Will it actually make hard links behind the scenes, or will it just duplicate files? I ask because I don't want the duplicates to consume my available drive space. I haven't managed to find official documentation regarding this, either.
I'm on Windows, but info about Mac and Linux would be useful as well.
