odrive1 is full, bi-directional sync, so it is different than traditional backup. It will sync additions, edits, and deletes in both directions. Here is a post where I go into that in more detail:
odrive2 does have a backup feature. We have an initial release of this in the beta Windows client:
The backup feature in odrive2 keeps versions of files, so an edit of a file is added as another version in the cloud.
We are still building out the features and functionality, but it currently has a monitoring and status UI to determine the state of each backup that has been setup.
The backup monitor will show failures. We do not currently have a method to send external notifications to the user about this
I believe you are a member of an Org, which is a gap right now in the odrive1 to odrive2 credit automation. I’ll send you a DM to follow-up on this.
It really depends on your use cases. odrive1 and odrive2 are separate apps, so they don’t have any interaction with each other. odrive2 does not have all of the features that odrive1 has, yet, however, so there may be odrive1 feature you want to still make use of. If odrive2 does everything you currently need then you can use it exclusively and uninstall odrive1.
If you sync the same data on both apps then your system will end up having that data twice.
