so I just noticed a quite large (≈ 4GB) file that is in my Google Drives root folder and not in my vaults folder where it should be. The file appeared after I switched from IOS to Android and activated automatic picture/video upload.
What to do with stray c9r file in Google Drive root
Unexpected Files in root of Google Drive
I’ve found two threads about this but still don’t really understand how to solve this issue and not have it happen again. Can somebody please help?
Thanks in advance
From one of the linked threads:
It seems to be a “feature” of Google Drive with shared files being deleted by another user. If you own a file and another user deletes it, the file will be deleted for the other user, but not for you as the owner. It will be moved to the root of your “My Drive”. Maybe for the owner to have a backup I don’t know.
Are you sharing the vault between multiple google accounts? If so, deleted shared files will be moved to your google drive root.
Hello, thanks for the response! No I do not which is why I don’t understand why the big .c9r file is in my Google Drive root. Do you know how I can fix this?
