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:
