Windows 10 and Google Drive


So I was asking my colleague to switch from Dropbox to Google Drive, mainly because is the company is subscribed to Google Apps for Work. But the pushback was that (Windows 10) search didn’t return hits as expected, and search is all-important.

I asked (the search engine) Google for help, and buried in a 2015 forum post is the solution for Windows 10, today. I’m not even sure why it’s been months and not resolved by the principals, but anyways:-

Right click ‘Google Drive’ > Security tab > Advanced > Click your username > Check the ‘Enable inheritance’ box > Click OK.
