I have changed my Gmail/Google Apps password for safety reasons.

The desktop client of Google Drive cannot synchronize anymore. If I log out and log in again, it might want to download again all the files.

How could I update my password in Google Drive desktop client?


I have found the following method:

  1. Click on Google Drive Desktop icon and quit
  2. Run Google Drive again
  3. You have an exclamation mark in the icon indicating an error: click on the icon
  4. Click on the error message and it will open a window to login again
  5. Login with your new password and that's it!

Hope it can helps.
