Google drive folders appear empty –

Well that’s weird – files and folders you know are there aren’t showing up in the Google Drive web interface. It doesn’t display all the files folders you know are inside a folder. They do show up in the Google Drive desktop app and when navigating in from other places – like attaching from Gmail. You can fix this by flushing the cache for that site in chrome:

  1. Navigate to the Google Drive folder with the missing items
  2. Click the padlock to the left of the URL and then Site Settings

  3. Click clear data to flush the cookies and cache
  4. Reload the page and your missing folders should be back!
