OSX Restarting GDrive App

If you use Google Drive and the OSX app, and like me you often travel and change network connection (VPNs count as well), you may have noticed that it won’t connect anymore.

While I don’t know why exactly, it may be due to some security things in the app itself, I noticed that by restarting the app it connects successfully.

Having to do it more than once a day, here is a simple script that with a double-click will restart it.
