I created a Google drive folder to which I gave an access to multiple people.

These people have created sub folders inside this and have created multiple Google docs inside these. They are now the owners of these Google docs.

I want to remove them from being owner of these Google docs. One way is to manually ask them but it's very difficult as there are hundreds of documents.

How can I remove them from being owner of these doc's that they have created inside my Google drive?

  • Do you have G Suite? – ahorn Apr 1 '20 at 7:45

You should be using G Suite, which is a paid, business form of Google Drive. In G Suite Business and G Suite Enterprise, you can create a Shared Drive, in which all the files that contributors make are owned by your organisation. See this answer as well.

In My Drive, you cannot ask the owners of hundreds of files to transfer their ownership. That is impractical. You can, however, simply copy those files. The copies will be owned by you.
