Shared with me lets you view the files and folders that collaborators have shared with you. You’ll be able to view files and folders in the order they were last modified along with these details:
- Time stamps recording the last time a collaborator saved something
- Owner of the file or folder
- Unviewed items in bold
What's in "Shared with me"
Shared with me only lists files and folders that include your email address in their “Share settings.”
You won’t see files in this view with share settings set to “Anyone with the link” or “Public.” Instead, try searching your Google Drive or looking for these items in the All items view.
Syncing shared files
Unless something shared with you is stored in My Drive, it won’t sync. Here’s how to add something from Shared with me to My Drive:
- Click Shared with me.
- Select files or folders.
- Click the Add to My Drive button. The selected files will automatically sync to the Google Drive folder on your computer.
