Some of My folders wont show up in the Google Drive Android App. How do I get them to appear?

Hi.
Sorry if this is the wrong palce to post, my "Help" Link-journey has guided me here.

So I've tried to make the switch from Dropbox to Google Drive, but the Android app seems to only show some of my folders in "My Drive", whereas all of them show up on the web app.
I can still access the files i need if i remember the file names and use the search option, but I cant navigate to them. This is a major pain, how do I get the rest of my folders to show up?

Same problem here.  I think it's something to do with changing the colours of the folders.  They were showing initially.  Later (for some reason) I changed the colours of the folders on the web, and next time I looked on android they had disappeared

I've just opened Google Drive on the browser, Right-Clicked the folders that were not showing and selected "mark as unread" and after that I just refreshed on Android and it showed ;D
Hope it helps

This also worked for me.  It seemed to only affect folders that I had created using the Google drive for Windows app.

I have like 1500 folders. Marking several hundred folders unread at a time would be crazy. Plus having to check all my folders as to which shows up and which do not is out of the question. And way to reset everything?

Go to App info... Force stop, then clear data. Relaunch drive and the folder will be there
