    This is actually a great fix, just took a few extra steps:

    After syncing the new folder to the 2nd drive. Select everything ‘all’ from that 2nd drive, unselect the new folder, and drag everything selected into the new folder.

    Now everything is in the same folder and is accessible without duplication, and with synchronization. it appears that the data did not change from account to account. The ‘owner’ of the document holds the data storage.

    There is just one extra step with accessing the folder from either account, to find or add content, you must first select the new folder. Totally worth it!

    I have been struggling with this for years. Thank you!

    This no longers works. Or did not work atleast for me. As in the section “Shared with me”, if i click on any folder , it does NOT show the option of “Add to my drive” (although individual files still have that option)

    It can be done! Just go to the drive client in system tray and click. In the pop up window click the “:” icon (with three points vertically) and select “add a new account”. That’s all. Drive client will guide you through the process once more.

    Yes but by sharing another google drive in your main one do you not lose space on your main drive?

    It is so obvious… But I never thought about doing so…
    Thanks very much.

    This is not synching multiple Google Drives. Sorry but you missed the point. It is very cumbersome and bandwidth quota consuming method for duplicating data sets with no synchronization control.

    sharing stuff in your drive and syncing multiples account IS NOT the same thing. If you need to compartmentalize and need all of the space google gives you this is not a solution.
