Known issues with shared drives

The following limitations and known issues apply to the current release:

  • You can't store some file types in shared drives, including (but not limited to):
    • Google Maps
    • Google Photos
    • Some virtual file types, such as App Maker apps
    • Files owned by other domains
  • You can only add external users as a member of a shared drive if they have a Google Account associated with their email address. To resolve this, users can create a Google Account with their existing email
  • Hidden shared drives still appear in Drive File Stream on users’ desktop computers.
  • When using Drive File Stream, you cannot move a folder from My Drive to a shared drive.
