I renamed synced folder locally, and to my surprise insync deleted this on google drive then re-uploaded it. In the process every single Google Cloud Document in that folder has been deleted. To add insult to injury though they exist in Google Drive’s bin, they do not list on searches - e.g. “:trashed” produces no result.
They can be found in Google Drive bin only by searching their contents (not their name or path). In that scenario they cannot be restored directly (presumable as their parent folder handle is no longer valid). The only way to recover them is to open them then follow the offer to ‘restore’, then move them somewhere.
This behaviour is dangerous given it affects cloud documents which are often not otherwise synced.
Any suggestions on how I can get all these files back? I have contacted Google directly also to see if they can help.
