Make sure the visibility setting is set to 'public on the web'. As mentioned above, you find this in the File->Share menu item.

You can upload photos to Google+ (or to picasaweb, alas only if you keep a pre-Google+ account) and then view them on the web. Ditto with Flikr and Smugmug and other photo-sharing sites. You don't upload via sync to these sites but that sounds like what you want: post, not sync. After upload, you may delete your local copies. I'd upload the videos to ...

Sure you can by whitelisting which folders you want to sync. Though, I am not aware of any "blacklisting" approach with Google Drive (i.e "not sync selected folders"). If you're looking for other solutions, you can try some other services such as Bitcasa or BackBlaze.

You can use https://github.com/larsks/gitdriver to create a git repository mirroring a google doc. In the repository is only one file stored and there is a commit for each Google Drive revision. Then, you can use commands like git log of git diff or graphical tools for showing the diff as described here: ...

Yeah, google drive sucks in that aspect. It doesn't save local copies of most files that do not count towards your limit (mostly docs, sheets, etc) anywhere in our hard drive. Not that we can easily access anyway. Also, even its "offline" feature, while it seem to work some times, it often fails. Oddly enough, video files (smaller than 15 min they say) also ...

A cookie must match the "confirm" url parameter, and it is changed on each call. Here's a perl script to download these files in an unattended way. With the url from the antivirus scan warning page (https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&confirm=s5vl&id=XXX) this code should be enough: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $TEMP='/tmp';my ...

I found the following solution in this forum thread (all props to Yajeng). Fist get the document ID in the URL: https://docs.google.com/file/d/<DOCUMENT-ID>/edit Then use it like: https://docs.google.com/viewer?srcid=<DOCUMENT-ID>&pid=explorer&efh=false&a=v&chrome=false&embedded=true Or like: <iframe ...

Log in to Google Drive In the toolbar click the "Details and Activity" button (looks like an 'i' in a circle). This should open the activity pane. You can now see all your activities on Drive, including the date in which you shared items.

If I understand the requirement, I think you could do this is a new sheet (containing a copy of your A column, assumed to be in Sheet1, in A) and: =iferror(vlookup($A1,Sheet1!$A:$E,column()+1,0),"") in B1 copied down and across to suit. If that works satisfactorily you might copy the entire new sheet, Edit, Paste special, Paste Values only and then ...

It is possible to use the API to search all files and filter the results down to the desired folder / subfolders. Here is an open source implementation: http://ljv5555.github.io/drive-folder-search/app/

Sounds like something you can probably do with the Zapier Google Drive integrations. In particular you might check out this person has created a Zap template that does basically that.

There are two basic ways. Don't use the Google Drive desktop app. Just upload your files to Google Drive using the web interface. If you want to be able to sync some files, but not all, you can define which folders under Google Drive should be included/excluded. Simply right-click the Google Drive app. Check "Only sync some folders to this computer". Then ...

Since googledrive is accessible as a virtual drive, you should be able to use imagemagick to modify the size or compression of the images in place.

If you're the sort of person who always has a terminal window open, and you're on OSX or another OS with shell commands that give you pipe-access to the system clipboard, you can set up something like this: alias stripstyle='pbpaste | pbcopy' Then whenever you want to paste without formatting, just go into your terminal and type stripstyle and voila, ...

The information that you are giving us is the link to the folder - not the link to the individual files within that folder. That is why "anyone with the link" can get to the folder, but cannot get to items witin it, ie because they do not have the links to the items in the folder. Arguably this is a silly distinction: if you want "anyone with the link" to ...

I have the two factor authentication enabled, and I have removed and re-added the app from the play store. It's now working for me (Chrome app launcher, and chrome://apps/ working), are you still having trouble?

The way I do it is when I originally create the files, I put them all in one folder and then share the whole folder with collaborators. You can also add shared files to "Your Drive" (so that they show up in your main screen) and put them in a folder there; that won't screw it up for other users. To add a shared file to your drive, select the file (in the ...

I was having the same problem, but using the URL https://drive.google.com/keep/ is working for me.

If you star the items in the Shared with Me folder, then these items will appear in your Starred folder. This will only help for one project though.

Try this code in a web app script. This code generate a Submit button and then ask for a file that the user can upload directly to a preconfigured folder of Google Drive. var app = UiApp.createApplication(); function doGet() { var formContent = app.createVerticalPanel(); formContent.add(app.createFileUpload().setName("DSRfile")); ...

To anser your question, if you want to remove it from you being able to view it: right click on the document. select share from the dropdown list (it will display everyone that has access to the document). click the x by your name (this will remove you from the shared group).

So, the directions are wrong. You can't deselect the folder. If you only select the folder you want the document in, it will move it out of the folder you don't want it in. Hope this helps.

I am trying a different strategy. Download all my Google+ pics via Google Takeout. This creates a bunch of zip files <=2GB in size. I uncompress them and then look at their size to find the large pictures that were uploaded at full resolution. I then use WinDirStat to visually quickly see which files are taking up space.

So after seeing in the other answers that it really should work, I tried to trace the problem, here it goes: The file has to be a - Google Spreadsheet - rather than a - XLS/XLSX Spreadsheet - . The reason is that XLS(X) files need an additional App to be edited, which you can't use without Google account. How to know which is which? By the icon: The ...

I think that, for editing, Google make a distinction between "anyone" - meaning a person with a Google account, and "everyone" - meaning people irrespective of Google account status. The distinction isn't applied to reading, but I'm sure I've send evidnece of it applying to edits before.

I mean is it possible to delete a file in the Drive folder without getting it deleted from the Drive. Yes: Uninstall the Google Drive software from your machine. Do all future uploads to www.drive.google.com manually Under this approach, you can upload from folders on your machine with any name that you like (including Drive). But there will not be ...

The online editor only supports Google Docs (.gdoc) format. You can import from .odt by: 1. enabling "Upload Settings" > "Convert uploaded files to Google Docs format" 2.

Are you sure your Sharing settings look like these? I've just created a document and edited it without any troubles (created with my google account and edited using different browser - not logged in).

Incomplete answer: Google Drive displays pages as images, so you can display specific pages by providing the direct image link. https://DOMAIN/file/d/DRIVE_FILE_ID/image?pagenumber=NUMBER Still not sure how to pass this to to the PDF viewer, though. Need to examine the "next page" function this evening.

Conventionally, I would say that what you are asking for is not possible, there is no such feature in Google Drive. You may however be able to restore to the previous structure more easily, if you had backed up your data on some other system too, such as Dropbox (by using IFTTT or something in those lines). Apart from that, if you have Google Drive ...

In the top right of the document is a blue button that says Share (with a lock over it) -- click this, the "link to share" field will already be highlighted with the URL to your document. Copy and Paste that URL in the other document. Click on it. That should do it.
