Google Drive URL - Account Specific Paths?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to create an account-specific URL for Google Drive?

 

In the past, my Google Drive-related Alfred workflows relied on the following paths:

However, this approach seems to have stopped working a few weeks ago (at least, that's when I noticed it). Now, I just receive an error indicating that the URL was not found on the server.

 

To be clear, you can still open and search Google Drive by using the number associated with the account - numbered from from zero and up based on the order in which you've logged in to them (e.g., https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2). However, I've never been a big fan of this approach because if you log in to your accounts in a different order, then the associated account numbers in the URL will change. For example, https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2 may become https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0.

 

Oddly enough, this account-specific approach still seems to work for gmail. So, for example, the following paths still seem to work fine:

 

Are others noticing the same problem?

 

I've tried logging in and out several times to make sure that I'm properly signed in to everything. I've also tried different browsers, but the problem with Google Drive appears to persist.

 

I couldn't find much about this issue posted in this forum or others - like Stack Exchange - but I was hoping that someone with similar workflows might have some advice (or knowledge of whether Google is changing its approach). Thanks for any help you can lend!

Good News: After reaching out to Google Drive's support, it looks like they've fixed the problem. 

 

The account-specific urls - specific above - are working again!

 

Case closed ... Ha
