Google plans to fix a spam problem with its Dell sharing system.
A problem originally disclosed by How-To Geek discovered that the sharing system was received for spam. Anyone can share files with another user as long as they have their email address and it is not possible to completely remove the files from the recipient's account.
Even after removing the button, the files are really just hidden instead of being deleted. This means that the user still gets the files, just doesn't actively view them. Google also does not allow users to block anyone. Even if you block the address in Gmail, it doesn't prevent your account from appearing in Disk.
Although it is probably not a problem for most users, a How-To Geek reader said that you noticed that they share a folder as their ex-controls, and there is no way to Stop this on.
Four weeks ago, I discovered that I was still sharing a Google Disk folder with pictures that I abuse and actively control into.
At the same time, I learned that there is ** no way to remove your own access from a folder you have accessed only. **

Google told How-To Geek that they make this a priority.
"For most users, default sharing rights in Run work are as intended. Unfortunately, this was not the case for this user and we sincerely apologize for her experience. In light of this problem, we consider changes in our spam -, abuse and blocking features that prevent this type of activity from happening on Disk, in the meantime, users who have similar problems can remove themselves from the folder and the folder should not be re-displayed in "My drives" or "Shared with me" with unless they visit it. "- Google Spokesman
Hopefully this problem will be solved quickly because it can be very annoying and, in some cases, even trigger.
