Hi, I'm able to move files by dragging them from my local file system to Google Drive by using Gnome Files without any problem. I'm also able to create new folder inside my Google Drive by using Gnome Files. But I'm not able to move any local file or the files already in Google Drive in those folders! I tried by dragging them but I get an error message (Operation unsupported). If I try with local file by choosing "move to" from the context menu in Gnome Files, Google Drive doesn't even show up as an option! What a non-sense! I'm on Fedora 23, but I even tried on Gnome 3.20 (on Opensuse Tumbleweed). Any suggestion?

Many thanks :)

Google Drive integration in GNOME is not fully complete, it's missing some features (as you have found yourself)

Maybe a helpful suggestion; consider using something like rclone ( ) as means to use files from Google Drive. It's more of a rsync type interface but might be another means to use Google Drive.
