IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Changes to multiple-location Google Drive items, commencing on June 27th 2022

Posted on 08/06/2022 17:00:03

We have been notified of a change being made by Google, commencing June 27th, and continuing over the following weeks thereafter. The change will affect files and folders which are held in multiple places within Google Drive. You will now start to see a banner appear which will warn you of the impending change. 


What does this mean for me?

If you have folders or files which are stored in multiple locations within Google Drive, whilst one location is preserved, all others will show a shortcut to the item. Any items that you have shared previously will retain exactly the same permissions.


What do I need to do?

You do not need to do anything, this change will take place automatically.
