Search Drive for files owned Add-on

Last updated 18 December 2021

What it does

This Add-on will search your entire Google Drive™ for all of the files that you are the 'owner' of and collate them into a single Google Sheet™. This Sheet will contain a clickable link to the file, the date it was created, when it was last updated and the folder path where it is stored.



Install the Add-on from the Google Workspace Marketplace

  1. You can access the tool from any Google Sheet™, by clicking the 'Add-ons' menu > "Search Drive for owned files" > "Start search".
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to enter your email address (if you enter a different email address you will only see the files that are owned by that account and that are shared with you - so you will not get a full picture of what exists).
  3. The Add-on will display an animated image whilst it performs the search, after which a new Google Sheet™ (tab) will be created in your file with the results.

Privacy Policy

Who is requesting Google user data? I am an individual developer making my tools available to all that want to use them. All of the data is stored within the Google™ environment, I am the only one with access to it and it is not shared with any third parties. There are no ads and no emails generated from any of the data. No other personal/sensitive data is collected and processed by me.

What data are you requesting? This Add-on takes an email address and then accesses your own Google Drive™ in a read-only capacity for file details.

Why are you requesting Google user data? The email address is entered so that the Add-on knows which account 'owner' to look for when scanning files.

The 'Search Drive for owned files' app's use and transfer to any other app of information received from Google APIs will adhere to the Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.

Terms of Service

This Add-on is free for use. You accept the Privacy Policy when installing the tool and will not attempt to interfere with its functionality. As an individual developer I take no responsibility for any adverse effects when using this Add-on, but I intend to make every effort to maintain it going forwards and ensure its functionality. It is your responsibility to use the tool correctly and securely.

You will not attempt to copy the Add-on.
