According to my understanding, setting Manage Accounts > (a Google account) > Sync Account > Drive should control Google Drive synchronization. But I see all the files updating (upon refresh gesture) in Drive app even if the sync is off.

So what this sync setting is for?

  • Wild guess: it's for automatic background syncing.
