Does changing one line in a 1 mb file (JSON) re-upload the whole file to Google Drive or does it intelligently upload the changes only? Thanks! :)

Maybe you can split it up to multiple small files and update them.

I think you mean COUNTIF and you whould use COUNTIFS, also you can think on using a COUNT(FILTER(  but you maybe gonna need a IFERROR function with those... (Y)

Hi, I'd really like a "find orphaned items" button - currently there doesn't seem to be any way of doing this if you don't know the name of an orphaned item.

Thanks

I have written a Google Apps Script which iterates all files and if it is orphaned, puts them on a Folder. It some times gives error about Apps Script runtime limitation. You may try and fix it if you want.

Hey guys, I'm x-posting my post from another community here because as developers, you guys have a better understanding of permissions and inner workings of Drive. If this isn't the right place to post this, I apologize.

Does anyone know how I can find out the description for each of these permissions? Can a 3rd party developer come up with their own list of permissions,… - Alexandre Doubov - Google+

I would really love to see a "create log file" option included in the bulk "transfer ownership" process. I have an admin account that shares 1000s of files with a number of users. When a user leaves or when they reach their storage quota, I transfer ownership of all user's files to the admin account. But I've experienced that files get duplicated into a "transferred from x-user" folder. Although they remain in their original location (usually, though sometimes they get lost altogether), I can't remove the "transferred from x-user" folder or any of its contents or the files get deleted from their original location.  So the only way google tells me to remove the duplicate files is manually one-by-one.
Please, Google, will you fix this process so that admins have the option to either conduct the transfer the way it currently works, or else simply create a log file of the transfers (without creating a duplicate of all the 1000s of files).

Are there any plans to add NTFS Support to the Mac OS X Version. I am using a shared environment and need to place my Google Drive folder on my shared NTFS drive which I access via Tuxera. Please add NTFS support for Mac.

An option to share with a 'Suggest' access privilege would be most welcome. This would greatly benefit document authors that prefer suggestions instead of straight edits.

The 'Revision History' approach is many times more complicated than the scenario you describe. Working with suggestions is easy and straight forward as opposed to inflexibility of the Revision history where you have to look for the change and then manually address it.

Enough said, I hope the Google Drive Gods will smile and be favorable when they see my request :)

Hello, 
i cannot see the quotaBytesUsed count increase when the owner of a document or others are commenting on the document. Also it seems to be possible to insert comments with a lot of data. Does anyone know if comments are counted against a quota and if there is a maximum size of a comment or all comments of a document?

Hi fellows,
I'm using GDAA (android drive api / gms) is there any (known) way to force an actual cache refresh / sync? I uploaded some files ages ago but my query is still not showing them. Instead it just gives me old and already deleted files. I don't know when the drive stuff on my device syncs w/ GDrive but it's not happening enough.
On stackoverflow I read about the "hack" to open the file to force a refresh but I can hardly open files that I don't (yet) know about.

I'm querying the app folder btw.

Hello people! I built a game that runs in Google Spreadsheet. Its not much, given that it is my first time programming (I didn't know how to write codes until two weeks ago). This is a functional 1 v 1 online Mecha Battle game. You select your mech parts and weapons to battle in a turn base system. Maybe its a kid's play to programmers, but for someone who has had trouble learning programming (for years), I find my casual experiment with Spreadsheet and Google script an ever more easier way to pick up the basics. And I'm sure I'm not the only case, there should be struggling beginners out there who could possibly find their solution the same way I did with Google Drive. So here I share the result. If you're a mecha fan, you might enjoy this: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pD8OXn7AF3-rzO8AN6pOyEZZg9bQC9fckku3KkmeZ74/edit?usp=sharing
