I know how to find the count of all files inside a folder in Google Drive. But I need to know the count of items that exist in the root of my Google Drive. How can I do that? I can't find an option, and I can't find the answer through search.
Google Drive UI doesn't include a way to count files in My Unit but not in other folders.
Gets a collection of all files in the user's Drive.
Use the Windows / Finder features to count the files for you.
Protip: Deselect all the folders so only files directly in My Unit will be synced. For further details, see Choose what syncs to your computer - Drive Help
