Deleting it simply moves it to the trash where collaborators may still access the file. If, however, you click the "trash" link and "delete forever" on the item in question, it is no longer accessible by collaborators.

If you share an MP3 by link, you obtain a link like this https://drive.google.com/file/d/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/view?usp=sharing where XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is the ID of your MP3 file. Then you can obtain a direct link to this audio by http://docs.google.com/uc?export=open&id=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX In particular you can use <audio controls> <...

Yes, it is possible. First, change the directory permission to public in which your mp3 files reside. Copy the folder ID, that will be at the end of URL when you are inside the directory. It will be something like this 0C2QKl-TsV6cVTE7wbWNOelRiRlk Next you can access the mp3 files using hosted mode: https://googledrive.com/host/0C2QKl-...

Don't know if this still helps anybody, but this can be done. With an “anybody with the link can view the file” link: prefix the file ID with uc?id= and append it with &export=download So it would look like this: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=FILE-ID&export=download

As of May 2017, the Public folder has been converted to a standard, private folder (this conversion happened for Dropbox Basic users on March 15, 2017). The in-browser rendering of HTML files has also been/is being discontinued (see quoted paragraphs below for the exact dates). According to the pinned answer on this question, shared HTML files will be ...

You should use the Upload new version feature rather than deleting/unsharing and sharing again. (You can delete earlier versions later.) Steps On your computer, go to drive.google.com. Right click on the file you want to replace. Click Manage versions. Click Upload new version. Select the new file on your computer. After the upload finished, open the ...

No it is not possible. Google does not have the tools for and refer to 3rd party scripts. They confirmed to me that they do not offer this much needed admin functionality to better manage permissions. In our case our Google Drive has become unmanageable now.

As the screenshot shows a background we could say that the folders are included in a "Shared Drive" (formerly "Team Drive"), also the link include in the question refers to a learning article about Team Drives. Unfortunately, at this time it's not possible to share folders included in a Shared Drive but you could add the users you want to share the folder ...

Yes. Open the document then click the blue "Share" button at the top. It will open a dialog that lists who the document is shared with and lets you share with more people. If you click the "Advanced" link in this dialog, it will open a larger dialog that gives more details and controls on who you're sharing the document with and what permissions they each ...

I would try the following: Create a new folder in your Google Drive to move all your shared items into. Go to "Shared with Me" and add all the shared items from there to the new folder in your drive. Perform an export through Takeout and this should include the new folder you just made with all the shared items you added to it. When I tested this ...

The assistant should change the owner to you before they leave. Otherwise, you're stuck with the process you've found. Obviously, in G Suite the administrator would be able to take care of all of this.

This example works: <audio controls=""> <source src="http://docs.google.com/uc?export=open&amp;id=1uZd99P8_xWM3fYsoSl4xHa8md2MWHa68" type="audio/mp3"></source> Your browser does not support HTML5 audio <br /> </audio>

I found out that you can do this with Google Docs, using File → Publish to the Web.

If you're asking how to have a folder synchronized without having the location of the folder within your Google Drive folder, you can do so with Symlinks. The program mentioned in that article, Link Shell Extension, is a great way to do this if you're either uncomfortable with the command line, or if you're doing most of your folder operations in explorer.

The information that you are giving us is the link to the folder - not the link to the individual files within that folder. That is why "anyone with the link" can get to the folder, but cannot get to items witin it, ie because they do not have the links to the items in the folder. Arguably this is a silly distinction: if you want "anyone with the link" to ...

For Google drive files (docs, sheets, slides etc.) you can select file>Published to the web... This will create a PUBLIC dynamically linked url that can be directly shared on facebook etc. or embedded. Note as this is dynamic if you change the file these changes will also be posted to the internet. For other files in Google drive you need to go to the ...

Yes. There is a sort button on the top right corner. If u want to see changes, click on the details button. I believe it looks like a circle with the letter "i" on the inside. This will show you a short timeline on the right-hand side of the page. Transferred from edit by OP to their Q: Thanks, @aurora-afable, this works pretty well: 1:

No. Only your account has access to those files. You have to explicitly share files for other people to see them.

Yes, if you add a new member to a group used to share files in Google Drive, the new member will be able to access the files shared with the group previously. From Use groups to share content If you later add new members to the group, they'll be able to access the document only via the document's URL. To make the document appear in the Shared with Me ...

1 Yes. You need to provide links from a file-host. Possibly Google Drive can be used (I'm not 100% sure if Drive takes rar/zip files). But whatever file host you use, you need to get the link to the file from it, and put that link into your blog with the post editor or HTML-widget editor. 2 Monitor it using whatever tools your file host provides. ...

You can create a shared folder -- shared between the two accounts -- and put everything into it. But that won't automatically handle everything that other people share with one of your accounts. If your need is to get all newly shared files into the account that you sync locally with GDrive, will it suffice to sync your school account? If not, try writing ...

One way to find this information is by looking through the different versions of the file. You can look at a relevant help page of the Dropbox service. Here is an exerp that will get you going: Sign in to the Dropbox website Right-click on the file in the file browser and select Previous versions in the pop-up menu It's as simple as that. You'll see all ...

My name is Suhyuk, from the Send Anywhere team. The 6-digit code expires once it is used, so it doesn't show after the transfer begins. If the code was a mix of alphabets and digits—in case of 24hr saved files—, then the sending device should have it on the history menu of the Send Anywhere app.

In the web-client, right click the folder and go to shared folder options. Here you can leave folder.

spent an entire day on this problem. like others say it https://docs.google.com/uc?export=open&id=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX worked few minutes then it got blocked. I used Github. basically, you can drag and drop an MP4 file to an issue then use that link to upload in my code works. NOT MP3 because GitHub allows only certain files to be uploaded. then I ...

Most users will need a Google account (not Gmail), to access drive files. The files must be shared explicitly with them, or shared public. Then the file’s (or folder’s) URL can be posted to a message in Facebook. I've run into problems when users didn't have Google accounts. I've never tried sharing directly to Facebook, just posted a properly shared Drive ...

Sounds like something you can probably do with the Zapier Google Drive integrations. In particular you might check out this person has created a Zap template that does basically that.

No, you cannot do it. Yes, very annoying. No idea why MS hasn't offered this feature. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/sdfiles-sdsharing/onedrive-shared-folder-sync-to-desktop/f6e69fbc-ada4-4faf-9790-fd0604262f56

Be sure to sign into Dropbox/register with the email address that the folder was shared with. After registering and signing in, you should be able to click the "Files" shortcut from the left sidebar. This will load a directory listing. The shared folders are indicated by an icon with two people, as depicted in this partial screenshot: Clicking on ...
