How Google Drive works with external disks
It's not well documented, so I run a few tests to understand how exactly Google Drive works with external disks.

I now have more data in Google Drive than can fit into my Mac’s 500 GB of built-in storage. As much I trust Google, I still want to keep a local copy of all of my files and I want it to seamlessly sync with the cloud.

A Tale of Bizzy, a Busy Bee at The BizzyHyve Inc.
Once upon a time there was a busy bee named Bizzy who worked at a bee hive. Bizzy was very busy and when other bees inquired how she was doing, Bizzy sighed "busy" and rushed back to her busyness.

Most of the time, Bizzy was busy being busy. A big part of her busy day was spent in busy meetings with other busy bees from across the hive.
