I've got a folder (Projects) on my local windows 7 computer. It's shared through Google Drive. I want to take some of the subfolders and make them Local-only.

I tried going to Google Drive options (on my PC) and unchecking SubFolderName. However, that just removed it from my local folder.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


On your PC, move (not copy) the folder (or file) to another location outside of the Google Drive Folder.

If you really want it local only, go to your Google Drive Web, go to trash , select the folder and hit "delete forever".
