    Any recommendation for the best plugin to do that? (And I'm assuming I should use Spigot if I want to use plugins?)

    I'm running a vanilla Java Edition server on a Windows 10 machine.[/p]
    I've thought about installing Google's Backup and Sync program, and using it to backup the server's world folder. I would add the folder to the Backup and Sync program, and have it automatically sync to Google Drive.[/p]
    However, i'm not sure if this is 100% safe. Is there any potential for a read/write conflict between the server and Google Drive? (Eg. The server autosaves and attempts to write to the file at the same time Drive attempts to read from it) My worst case scenario would be if the world file was corrupted, and uploaded to Google Drive, thus overwriting the last good backup.[/p]
    In an ideal world I'd run the server on Linux and use cron to automate backups, but unfortunately i'm stuck using a spare Windows 10 machine at the moment.[/p]
    Any advice? (I also currently do this for my single player saves folder, is this safe as well?)[/p]
