Using Multidrive with a large existing Google Drive Account

I am assuming that if I make a multidrive folder that it will then resynch my very large (530GB) main google drive folder to the new Multidrive folder.

My question is: if the above is true how can I avoid resynching all these files that are already on my computer (I then want to add my other smaller google drive accounts).

    There are 2 ways for your case:
    1 - Choose selective Sync , sync only folder you need to local. Go to Preferences -> select account -> Selective SYnc.
    2- SYnc External folder :
    - New version 1.4 support sync external folder to Google Drive, so you can make an Empty folder in local and . choose SYnc External folder, it will create new Folder in Google Drive. From Google Drive Web move file you need to sync to this folder, it will automaticaly sync to your local.

    Let us know if it work for you.
