Google Drive items in multiple locations to be replaced by shortcuts

Posted on 19 May 2022

Starting Monday 27 June, Google Drive items (files and folders) that exist in multiple locations will be replaced by shortcuts.

This change is expected to take Google a "number of weeks" and in the two weeks prior to this you may see a notification banner in Google Drive such as the one below:

The banner reads: In the coming weeks, items in more than one folder will be replaced by shortcuts. Access to files and folders won't change.

Further information on this change is available in the following Google Doc:

We will update this Doc should there be any changes or further information from Google.
