How do I find out at which time a file has been deleted?
Is it safe to use files.list with trashed=true and then look for the modifiedDate field?

Hi! It would be nice if Google drive app for android, have the pin feature of the ios app. I know there are apps like applock, but there are not as secure. Since they can be disabled simply, by terminating their service.

#Bug  
Links/Hyperlinks are not searchable. If you create a link with "ctrl + k" you will be able to find the text through the search but not the link itself.
I find that kind of annoying when I'm searching for youtube and can't find the links because I named them "Drive API tutorial" for example.

I know it might not relate to google drive but I have issues when using gdata.client.Service.getFeed (JAVA) now. It was working perfectly, but it suddenly stop working. Always give me 'The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.<p>Please try again in 30 seconds.  <ins>That?s all we know.' Is there any known issue has been report?

Do you know with whom you shared a document last year? 

It would be great to have a menu item "Shared by me"  (not only "Shared with me")

Can I use Google Drive as Database?

Google Drive gives developers access to app folder : https://developers.google.com/drive/android/appfolder

The documentation states App Folder can be used to store configuration files, temporary files, or any other types of files that belong to the user but should not be tampered with.

So does this mean I can store a file database for my app - I expect the entire database would be less than 1 MB even for heavy users.

But it would mean many database reads, i.e. each time user loads the app, it would have to read a file database which could store many records, etc.

1. Can google drive add api "transfer files cross diff. cloud storage", just like save_url feature in dropbox? (In both new & old drive api)

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/docs#save-url

2. Open permission for GDAA to list all folders & files.

If the URL to be fetched is one of the cloud storage url and how does the dropbox gets an access to it ? Does it prompt the message to user to allow the dropbox to connect to other cloud storage ?

We've gotten a lot of reports recently about Google Play Services crashing when using our Android app (which then crashes the app). From the logs it looks like it connects the google api client successfully, but then I guess Google Play Services crashes sometime between then and the first time the app tries to use the Drive API. The next time it tries to connect we get a connection result with INTERNAL_ERROR(8) and no resolution.

Have there been any issues with Google Play Services/Drive API recently that you know of or are being fixed?

Thanks

Request: "Move To" function should just show a textbox/searchbox in which you can type in the folder where you want to move the file and 
Arguments: +Faster to find the right folder +Cleaner UI -If you don't know the folder name it bad (that's why this functionality should rather use the Drive search which just shows folders)

Request: A button named "close folder", which will just zip all files in the folder, delete all the files and just leave the zip archive. 
Argument: The number of files in Drive will increase and so the global search will show various irrelvant old results. Furthermore sometimes you just don't want to be able to search all small files in a software project for exaple. So many small files make the sync process slow and reduce the overall performance. And of course it gives you a "cleaner" gDrive.

Hello @all

I want to do the following: Save a piece of text, a picture or a link directly in a gDoc, gSpreadsheet or sth. alike.
Something like a webclipper (see OneNote webclipper >> https://goo.gl/1FB7j0)
Do you know of such a piece of software?
Would it be possible to program such a thing with the Drive-API?

_Greetings

Today, we're introducing OneNote Clipper 2.0—a major update to the OneNote Clipper that offers enhancements for capturing web content into OneNote, and enriching that content to make it more useful. Responding to some of the more popular requests from Clipper users, in this update we have added a redesigned user interface, a location picker, intelligence (for clipping just what you need, minus the clutter), and region clipping for Chrome.

I am new to GD API and was wondering is it possible to create a folder with READ_ONLY access to user and other apps but READ_WRITE access to my application ? If yes, then will the user be able to share that folder with others ?
