The problem is this. The need to work to share with a friend quite large files. Use Google Drive. It created a shared folder, and each configured desktop client (this is important). Accordingly, I throw in a file folder, it automatically is poured on the disc, the friend sees him, picks up and removes that space is not occupied. I have this file also disappears, including from the local folder, all is well.
The problem is that these files go missing anywhere in Google Drive, but it is actually not removed and continue to take place. They can be seen only under quota (https://drive.google.com/drive/quota)
which lists all the stored files in sequence space. And here there is just all these deleted files will lie quietly.
The parameter "location" of these files is absent. Ie they are not assigned any directory on the drive, so they cannot be seen. In the "history" section, they only have two item: created by then, so removed - then the something. But in spite of this, the file continues to take up space. I have such files 100Gb accumulated...
Periodically I go into the category of quotas and remove these "dead souls". But it's harder and harder to do. A lot of files, large of course can be seen immediately, but a lot of small mixed with plain files (under quotas, are all the files in a row without hierarchy at all), and choose the deleted difficult.
In General, looking for any way to solve the problem. Can a script look for such files, or some setting overlooked?.. Of course you can write in support of google, but I doubt that this bug (if a bug) will be the priority. Moreover, this situation prompts the user to purchase additional disk space.
I would be grateful for any clues. Thank you!
upd. In any case, I stress that these files are not in trash on google drive.
