Project root directory in Google Drive


1. Project is located in a folder shared via Google Drive.

2. Created files disappearing.

3. Corrupted files without names appears. 

4. In the Project Structure tool window, non-existent folders appear.

5. IDE shows warnings that the file was edited externally.


Google Drive constantly makes operations with the assigned directory and doesn't allow other applications to read the directory correctly.


To mitigate most problems, switch to offline mode with Preferences | Google Drive select Mirror files.
