Google Backup and Sync Error “Something went wrong. Can’t add path”

Something went wrong - Backup and Sync

Backup and Sync from Google is quite a raw app. It is a fresh app that came to replace the two old programs for PC at once – Google Drive and Google Photos. Backup and Sync contains some awkward drawbacks making users stuck on configuring the app. Let me tell you about my situation.

I have a photos archive on my hard drive. It is located in Pictures\Camera Roll\. I prefer splitting the archive into years. That’s why in the Camera Roll directory I have sub directories named 2018, 2017, 2016, etc. A few days ago I had to roll back my Windows 10 to the previous state using Aomei Backupper because the OS worked not perfect. As it turned out, the backup did not contain Backup and sync for some reason. So I downloaded the latest version and installed it.

When I launched the program it applied some settings from its previous installation. In such a way the parent folder named Pictures appeared in the list of synced directories. I hate when Google’s Backup and Sync rechecks all my photo archive each time I boot (or reboot) my computer I decided to add only the folder with the latest photos to sync. And when I unchecked the “Pictures” folder in the Preferences and tried to add only ‘2018’ the program told me “Something went wrong: Can’t add path “C:\Users\tunecomp.net\Pictures\Camera Roll\2018″ because its a sub-folder or a parent of a folder that’s already been added”. Even if I tried to uncheck the parent directory the app still reported that error. Here is how to resolve the problem!
