Google Drive’s pricing is hard to beat and in fact nobody is doing it. However, the user interface could be a bit better. For my sake, and yours, after googling with little success for this rather easy but elusive set of instructions, I decided to document and publish them myself after I finally discovered the steps.
Without further ado, here’s how to copy files and folders in Google Drive and create symlinks (symbolic links).
- Click to highlight the file(s) and folder(s) you want to copy
- Press Shift-Z to open a dialog with the “Add here” button
- Navigate to the destination folder
- Press “Add here”
