A few years ago, I had a massive shared directory (shared by me) in my Google Drive with a lot of files (5,000+). This directory was used by multiple users. However, I deleted that directory some time ago (years); therefore, I'm no longer able to see that directory.
However, by searching, I can still find those files in that directory. I can remove them one by one, but as I said, there are a lot of files, and it is not possible for me to remove (or find) them one by one.
How can I remove these files completely?
If I do manage to delete them, will these files be deleted from other (shared) users as well?
In addition, is it possible for me to disable the Google drive sharing feature (I don't trust it anymore)?
– Trash is clear.
– I was the owner of the shared directory.
– I cannot find the physical location of the file. I can only find them though search.
– AFAIR, the directory was shared with anyone with link.
