I've noticed when I hit certain folder links on Google Drive it comes up as a RAR file and cannot be viewed without Cloud Converter.

My question / concern is: After clicking for Cloud Converter it pops up a list of permissions it needs to function, and I'm wondering if permissions are granted will it lead to Google deleting files / folders ? If more details are needed, kindly drop a reply here and I'll get specifics ASAP. TIA for the assist / help !

I'd suggest posting this in the Google Drive thread. We don't have experience with the plug-in you're using but someone there might.

Sorry to be of little help.

Just to clarify -- are you requesting that people alter permissions on their drives to use an extension?

You'll need to find another way to download content unfortunately. The drives need to remain read-only (the owners don't want content disappearing) and permissions can't be changed to make downloading content easier for one person.

I may have misunderstood the initial question. Sorry for the confusion.

Noted and understood Smile I was just hoping to be able to preview [hence the Cloud Converter, if it's even able to do that...] before downloading in the case of RAR files. I can always D/L and scope it then decide. Thanks again Smile

Pardon the confusion on my side too. What I meant is, there's an app called CloudConvert [ apparently a built-in app from Google / Google Drive], that asks for permissions from me to access things such as "View your email address", "View your basic profile info", "View and manage Google Drive files and folders that you have opened or created with this app" and "Add itself to Google Drive"

I know Google can 'see' what's on drives yet I'm not sure if this would create hassles for drive-owners and group in general.

I'd rather err on side of caution and not rock the boat for everyone by possibly granting Google more looks at files than they may already have.
