Organize Your Google Shared Drives

Clean Drive will scan all your shared drives in Google Drive, or you can choose specific shared drives to scan in Google Drive. The Clean Drive tool will then present your files in different categories so that you can easily clean up the clutter or understand how your storage is being used.

Clean Drive presents your files in different categories, so it is easy to quickly see your duplicate files, hidden files, large files, large folders, and empty folders at a glance. Then you can drill down to specific folders or files in each category using filters. Last you can quickly remove the files you no longer need using the bulk delete feature or by manually selecting what you do not want.

Find & Remove Duplicate Files in Google Drive

Clean Drive will help you locate and remove duplicate files in your Google Drive account. You can easily remove the duplicates in your account by individually selecting duplicate files, selecting all files on a page or using the Bulk Delete Tool for the entire category.

* Please note, you can find and remove photos that exist in Google Drive but finding files in Google Photos is not yet supported.

It’s now easy to find your large folders in Google Drive. Clean Drive will show you the size of each folder and the folders taking the most space in your Google Drive account. You can also use filters to drill down to specific folders that you would like to see.

Surprisingly, files can consume storage space but not exist in a folder. The only way to find these files in Google Drive is to search for the exact name. Clean Drive shows all of these hidden files in one place so you can choose to delete them or move them back into a folder.

Shared Drives

If you have multiple drives and shared drives in Google Drive, you can scan them all. Before your scan starts, you will have the option to choose a specific shared drive to scan or any combination of shared drives and My Drive. This allows you to drill into the specific files you are interested in even if those files exist across multiple drives.

View Shared Files

View Files that are shared with you in Google Drive. Clean Drive will help you view who owns each file so that there is no guessing at where each file came from.

Our motivation is to help you organize Google Drive and we will not use your information for anything other than that. You can read more about this in our Privacy Policy.

Browse by File Type

Clean Drive shows your Google Drive files organized by file type categories. Would you like to see only the documents in your account? Or maybe just the images? You can even drill down to more specific file types such as PDF, Excel, JPG, etc.

How to Organize your files in your Shared Drives

You can also start your scan and view your results using the mobile app in the Google Play store or the Galaxy store. The app is also available as a Google Drive Add-on . As soon as you start the scan, Clean Drive will analyze the files in your Google Drive account and show you a summary of how your storage space is being used across the shared drives that you selected. Your files will be displayed in specific categories. For example, you can view your duplicate files across your shared drives and easily remove the clutter.

Meet the Founder / Family Man

Hello! My name is Brett and I love creating apps that help the world. I built the Clean Drive app to solve my own storage dilemma and I hope it helps you as well.

Founder of Clean Drive - Brett Batie

After storing my files online for many years, my drive account was starting to look like it was owned by a pack rat. I knew it was time for a change. When I went to find my old files or even the files that were consuming all of my storage space, I found there was nothing to help me do it. Enter the creation of Clean Drive.

I’m a pretty laid back guy that enjoys spending time with my family and friends in the great outdoors. I have a beautiful wife and four amazing children. They are the ones that make this all worth it.

Thank you to all my loyal, friendly customers for your support. I’m grateful that you are here!

There is so much power in scanning across shared drives. I have different shared drives for each of my clients and I often add the same files to each of them. Clean Drive easily exposed the duplicates that I no longer needed. Thanks!
