Encryption does not protect those files.

So that's a dead end. If you want to safeguard files you can't lose you do that by making backups. For example if I put files on CDR or DVD-R then that media is read only and the files can't be corrupted.

Encrypt

I suppose you could encrypt these files on your machine and then go to google drive and delete the unencrypted files and send the encrypted files to google.

So now what google has is encrypted files.

The problem is any machine with the encryption key has access to the files just as malware does.

The cloud is just one part of data backup.
