According to The Verge, Google Drive is now adding the ability for users to lock other accounts from sharing files with them. This feature will be rolled out in the next two weeks. In this function, as soon as one user locks another user, it will also delete the old files of the locked user from the first user’s drive. According to Google’s support page, an option will appear to block any user. Other users shared in Drive can be blocked by right clicking on it. If you want to add it again, then the unlock feature will be there too.
Decision made after many complaints.
The idea came to Google when a news outlet reported that a user shared an abusive folder on their Drive with a friend. It contained objectionable images that the aggrieved user had no permanent option to deal with. After seeing many more such examples, Google decided to offer this new option.
