I can right click a folder

Can right click a folder

But not the entire drive

but not the entire drive

For my employer, I want to share my entire Google Drive space provided by them. I want to be able to have a direct URL to my whole drive in my email footer. This is so that they can always access my work if I am unavailable.

Research so far:
Already looked for solutions—most say “share the folders” you want to share, but I want everything to be shared. The workaround would be to create a master folder and put everything in that and share it, but I'd prefer the top level “root” of the drive to be shared and specifically I want a direct URL of the whole drive to share to people.

The workaround would be to create a master folder and put everything in that and share it - Whats wrong with that approach? – jwbensley Sep 16 '15 at 10:41
+1 Yes I am doing that. Nothing wrong with it. But it was a workaround alternative to my original problem. But on reflection, perhaps not being able to share the entire drive is by design. – therobyouknow Sep 16 '15 at 15:27
Share the link. – Dani Springer Jan 11 at 7:05

Just create the new folder (eg: Public), share that folder as "Public on the web", then move your folders (dev, docs, login, projects) under Public folder

OP is already aware of that option and is looking for a different way. – Al E. Aug 26 '13 at 13:56
