    I have installed Drive File Stream (Google Drive) in my iMac and is ok, but If I try to enter from my Windows10 in Parallels I cannot find a folder.
    Someone can work with Drive File Stream and Windows10 in Parallels? How can I do it?
    Thanks for your help,
    Elena

    Please follow as suggested below:

    1.Please disable sharing by unchecking the radio box as given in this article
    2.Please click on Actions(On the Mac menu bar) > Reinstall Parallels Tools.
    3.Then now enable sharing as suggested at http://kb.parallels.com/6912 and check if this works. Thanks!

    Any update on this? I am having the same issue, just installed Drive File Stream and cannot access the drive on my virtual machine. A folder has appeared under Home (Mac) Shortcut: Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 5.00.59 PM.png
    but the follow pop up appears to try and fix a broken shortcut:

    Facing the same problem, this is really annoying,
    I tried to post the problem on Google forums but the message below says: you do not have permission to access this content.

    FYI I've got this working now.
    I just went to Devices/Sharing/Add Folder from within the VM and added it from there. It's now accessible as before
