FYI, starting on June 27, 2022 and in the weeks thereafter, Google will be replacing multiple-location Drive files with shortcuts. Any impacted users in our domain will start seeing an in-product notification banner about two weeks before the replacement starts. The banner will notify them about the change and will point them to a support article with more info. The migration will take place automatically—no action will be required by users.
- One location is preserved for files or folders currently contained in multiple locations. All other instances of the item will be replaced with a shortcut.
- Ownership and sharing permissions for files and folders are preserved.
