If I look at my Google drive, I can see all the documents I have access to in the "Activity" section.

If someone shares a document with me I can see when someone last made changes to the doc.

However if someone decides to unshare it with me, all traces of that doc and that I had access disappear.

Is there someway I can see what documents have been shared with me and then the sharing was revoked?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Presumably you can copy any of those documents from the Google Drive folder in your OS to some other non-Google Drive folder. Then by comparing the two folders you can see what no longer exists in your current Google Drive folder.

This is limited to being prepared. In other words you don't believe that in hindsight this kind of behavior can be proved. – Moak Aug 22 '12 at 17:03
I don't see how, no. If it's not listed on the Activity tab where else would one get this information? – Al E. Aug 22 '12 at 17:06
