Copying Files From Google Drive

If you use Google Drive for anything, you likely have accumulated a number of files in your "drive" over time.  This is the case for me and what I would like to be able to do is something like rsync to just mirror my entire Google Drive to my local system.  Does anyone know how to do this?

Why, you may ask?  Well, while I find Google Drive useful, I still like having control over all of my data and I really just view Google Drive as a convenience.  Since Google may at any time decide to discontinue it, I want to have all of my data in a location that I know I control.  So I want to keep a local sync of those files for my own backup purposes.

Looking for ideas...

or download everything

I have the same problem so I have local and multiple cloud copies. You can never have to many backups.
