I am getting unwanted spam in the "Shared with Me" section of my Google Drive. Is there any way to disconnect that portion of the Drive or block the spam?

As far as I can tell, you can't disable the section, but you can report the spam.

Unfortunately you have to open the file first (much of the Google Drive spam I get I would never want to open). Burried in Google's documentation is:

Google Drive SPAM Unwanted Sharing Instructions


On a recent discussion on the Official Google Drive forum, a Community Specialist recommend to send feedback to Google directly from Google Drive.

The path to send feedback have slighted change

  1. Go to https://drive.google.com
  2. Click on Help (the button with the question mark ? icon)
  3. Click on Send Feedback
  4. Fill out the form and submit it
