200.000 files orphans

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I uploaded about 200.000 files from my pc to a team drive, or was a pc backup. I noticed that team drive only support 400.000 files so I moved it to a folder I was created on my drive, I did it on the web of Google drive. I notice that the files, many of them, didn't show on the folders of my drive, so I deleted the folder I had created on drive.
Now I can't see the files unless I click on search. If I go to drive doesn't show any files. If I click search - on my drive, show files.

If I put rclone ls drive:/ didn't show any files...

Can I delete with rclone? I think the files are orphans....

The short version is there is no API to see orphaned files so you can't find them in rclone.

You can find them via your Google Drive though if your goal is to delete them.

Does a search with:

is:unorganized owner:me

show them? I think you can delete them that way.

hi, files doesn't show if I put is:unorganized owner:me, only show if I click search on my drive !!## my God...

Thanks I will see it
