Google drive quota on shared folder

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Writing files using a standard google drive account with 15gb limit.
Writing to a shared folder on another google drive account with lots of storage.
I can only write 15gb and then get Error 403: The user's Drive storage quota has been exceeded". The google drive indicates it's full. This all makes sense.
My question is:
Is there a way to write the data using the quota of the account who owns the shared location?
This may be a google question.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

not quite

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

google drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy /var/www/html/cd "googledrive:/Oncall recordings 2023/recordings" --drive-shared-with-me

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
scope = drive
token = REDACTED
team_drive =

A log from the command with the -vv flag

generating log

Yes it is question to google:)

With basic Google accounts the only way to do this is to log in as the other account.

Enterprise accounts can use impersonate but it doesn't work with normal Google.

If you want to upload to a Shared/Team Drive then the owner/manager of that drive needs to add you as Contributor. You will still be limited to 750gb a day for uploads unless you use service accounts.

Also the Team Drive needs to have less than 400,000 objects on it or you still face the same issue.

Obviously you will need to setup rclone config to access the Team Drive once you are authorized

Using Google Groups and Service Accounts is a much better way to interact with Team Drives then a single gmail addie.
