I can't seem to figure out how to find the files that I've shared with people. The Google Help page on the topic provides a few clues but the following query is not allowed:

owner:me to:*

but a specific target is valid:

owner:me to:foo@bar.com

Any clues?

  • I am also interested in this question. It is strange Google doesn't have this as a search option. – yoyostein Jul 27 '16 at 7:48

Unfortunately, there is no parameter to what is described. What you could do instead is make use of Google's logic system, primarily used in search queries.

owner: me to:foo@gmail.com OR to:seadrus@gmail.com OR to:Dan@gmail.com ...

...And continuing to do so with every person on your contacts list/who you've shared things with. No easy way to go about, as far as I know.

Explanation of Google logical operators

  • OR is a search operator that can be used multiple times. It asks Google to search for either a OR b.

  • AND is a search operator that can be used multiple times. It asks Google to search for both a AND b -- redundant as Google automatically does this with a search query like Green Jeans.

There are more that are, as far as I can tell, are only relevant in the search engine.
