How do I use Google Team Drive as backup location?


Can somebody please explain me how to set a folder from Google Team Drive as backup location?
I have used OAUTH and it’s connected.

In the path to server, whenever I enter a folder name, it’s always created in my personal Google Drive.
How to use this field so it refers to a Team drive or subfolder in team drive?
The manual and documentation shows nothing at all about this, but from the options I see an option that allows to “hide” Team drives.
So that makes me believe that at some point, I must be able to select a folder and also from a Team drive no?

Is there a guide how to setup backup to google drive?

Experimental support for Team Drive was added in version canary (Release: (Canary), 2018-01-23) but I don’t know that I ever saw anything specific about how to use it.

There was a discussion about it here, so perhaps @kenkendk, @YaphetKotto, or @ajthemacboy have used it and can help you out…

(By the way, I moved this to it’s own topic to make it easier to find.)


It was added to with an option to disable it. It was not tested well, because my access to the TeamDrive stopped working. The implementation follows the specifications, so it should be possible just to type in a target TeamDrive folder.
