Hi @mia, yes correct. Let me explain:
I sync my files in
~/Documents. When someone shares a folder with me I click on “Add Shortcut to My Drive” for easier retrieval when I’m on the Web interface. This creates a shortcut in my Google Drive. When this happens, Insync places a file with extension .gdlink in the location I chose on my filesystem. This is helpful to know when I’m on the filesystem, but there is not much else I can do with these .gdlink files.
Now, my request is the following:
Currently, In Insync, I choose to sync my shared folders in a “base” folder,
~/Insyncemail@example.com/Google Drive - Shared with me. It would be great if Insync was capable of detecting that and created a linux symbolic link in place of the .gdlink file. That would let me hop directly to the synced location within the file manager, without having to do it manually or having to go through the web interface.
Hope this is more clear now.
