Hi,
I've a a folder of few GBs, I have synced it to Google Drive, but when I change a file it automatically updates the cloud & changes the file. I want to sync it manually only when I want to. Like If I change something accidently it will be synced on Cloud too I want to avoid scenario like that.

So my question is: Is it possible to only update Synced files/folders on Google Drive when I want to?

Don't save this data to the folder synced with googledrive.
When you DO want it in "the cloud", move it to that sync place.
Actually I'm working on a project I want to check if everythings okay before syncing it again to the drive? If I close the Google Drive Client so it wont sync by itself & then opening it again when I want to sync will this work? I found this blog about it; http://techawakening.org/force-google-drive-to-sync-files/3003/
But I'm not sure will it work or not?

u can try google vault, its 18$/month but it works like archive, so u can get to older file versions
Yes thats a good advice but I want to do it for free. I dont need the archive system (ability to recover old files). I just want it to sync only when I want to.

I have no idea if that works or not. I don't use google drive.

Try it. See what happens.
