For example someone emails you a link to a shared folder on Google Drive. Is there a way to add it in your Google Drive without downloading and uploading it manually?
It would be great if the owner/admin decides to delete the file I would still be able to use it.
The "make a copy" option only works for single file. So if there is a way creating single zip on Google Drive then the problem is solved.
Note: "transfer ownership" won't work because the two users are not from the same organization.
