Google Team Drive Known Issues

There are a number of known issues with Google Team Drive.  

Google Drive Sync Tool

Currently, the laptop/desktop Google Drive sync tool does not sync files stored in Team Drives. If you are the owner of a large share in your My Drive and you use the Google Drive sync tool to sync files to and from you desktop or laptop machine, you will not be able to sync the files if you move them to a Team Drive. Google recently released Drive File Stream for enterprise and educational institutions, but is not recommended for use until a conflict with System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) is resolved.

File types

Some file types cannot be stored in Team Drives, such as Google Maps and existing documents with attached Apps Scripts.

Move folders

You cannot move a folder from My Drive to a Team Drive. You must move the files, though you can move multiple files at one time. See Migrate Files to Google Team Drive for detailed instructions.

Lucidpress and Lucidchart Documents

Lucidpress and Lucidchart document types cannot be moved to a Google Team Drive. To store and share this content on Google Team Drive, save the document in a PDF format and move the PDF to the Team Drive.
