I wanted to share some files with someone that uses neither rclone nor gdrive. Rather than depend on the mercy of google's website I sent them a portable rclonebrowser+rclone with a custom remote I created using the folder ID and read-only scope. To my surprise, they checked the box for "Shared" and suddenly files shared with me were visible.
My question is, for my use case is there any way to limit this via the underlying oauth request from Google? Or am I stuck creating a user with nothing "shared with them"?
I completely realize the proper way of doing this is to share via google. I've looked through advanced and nothing appeared to apply to this, and of course searched the forum and get many false positives of people trying to get shared-with-me working. And here I am with the opposite problem
Seeing shared with me when remote is authorized for a specific folder ID.
To test I run:
rclone limitedremote: --drive-shared-with-me
[limitedremote] type = drive scope = drive.readonly root_folder_id = removed token = removed
Edit: apparently "removed" with square brackets is special even within backticks. oops.
