How to update the password in Google Drive Desktop after I have changed it


I have changed my Gmail/Google Apps password for safety reasons.

The desktop client of Google Drive cannot synchronize anymore.
If I log out and log in again, it might want to download again all the files.

How could I update my password in Google Drive desktop client?
