EDIT: This was posted before google made it possible to share things with a "shortcut". This issue may be solved (not yet confirmed).
I'm not sure how this happened but several people in our organization can access directories within our Google Team Drive in two different ways and it is leading to a lot of confusion.
Here you can see that I have the "Projects/Teams" directory in both "My Drive" and the team drive.
This causes a problem because the team can't necessarily see files that someone adds to the team drive directory that they access via "My Drive". However, if someone shares the files they've created via "My Drive" then those people can access the files through "My Drive" in their own accounts.
This is slowly creating two divergent filesystems.
- The actual team drive that everyone has access to:
- A phantom shared copy of the team drive that is significantly different:
My question is why is this happening, and how can configure G Suite to prevent this?
