Files on Drive Suddenly Getting Flagged for Abuse 0 Recommended Answers 0 Relevant Answers 8 Replies 188 Upvotes

All of the PowerPoint presentations I have uploaded to a shared google drive have been flagged for abuse for the past week. I use them for work, and now I cannot share them with my colleagues which is causing major problems and is affecting my work. I have tried deleting slides, re-uploading the files, etc, but nothing is working. We have been doing presentations for years now with similar content and have never had this issue, this has suddenly started happening, and only on mine and one other colleague's account.

We have both asked for a review on these presentations but have received no response. I need this fixed as soon as possible, so that I can get on with my work.

Hi, Isobel,
 
I'm sorry that happened. Please review the abuse program policies and terms of service to see what might have triggered this violation and request a review if you think the violation wasn't warranted. You can do that by following the instructions on this page: Request a review of a violation.
 
Because the help communities are managed by volunteer product users, not Google employees, we have no way to expedite reviews, which can sometimes take weeks or months. Google won't be in touch with you during that time. If your data is restored, it will just reappear in your Drive.

This is a MAJOR glitch that is now happening with Google Drive.
I have done extensive testing with absolutely blank documents (.docx, .xlsx, .pdf) and it happens as soon as you change your Advanced share settings from "OFF" to one of the "ON" settings.
They are immediately flagged for abuse and you can no longer synchronize or share them.

GOOGLE DRIVE needs to fix this as it has been broken for MONTHS. We have literally thousands of files that are FLAGGED and Google has not responded to any of them.

Hi folks,
 
I'm going to move this thread to the Drive help community. One of the experts there may be able to provide more insights and advice.

Why is this a thing again? They are my files and documents... Not theirs. This has never happened to me before, I also have power points presentations I had to share with my classmates and this made me look bad and I had to apologize to them because of this.. Just remove this feature, it makes no sense.
