  • Posted to Show DN: Filewatch - Find your public files on Google Drive, May 14, 2018

    I've just launched Filewatch (, something which I've been working on for about six months.

    I decided to make Filewatch after using Google Drive in a small company. We found that files were often made public so that they could be easily shared with people outside the company but that it was very difficult to keep track of those files.

    We didn't want to prevent the files from being shared but were concerned that an important file would make it into the wrong hands one day, especially if the file related to one of our clients.

    Filewatch is a free tool which scans your Google Drive and displays all of the files which are publicly available (shared with anyone on the web or anyone with the link).

    It scans all files which you have permission to share, including files you don’t own and files in team drives you have access to.

    After scanning the files, Filewatch displays a list of the files which are publicly available. You can then review them and change the sharing settings if necessary.

    I’d be very grateful for any feedback you can provide.

    Another design of an existing product which isn't based upon reality. This design shows a significantly thinner watch, which of course looks much more attractive.

    Not going to pile on to the existing criticism.

    Needless to say, I did not sign up.

    It sucks on everything. They've ruined a potentially great website by hijacking the scroll for no obvious reason.

    It is pure CSS. As mentioned in the source:

    "No images used, completely created in HTML/CSS"

    Laughably bad, literally. It's not often that 'literally' is used in the correct sense but I'm actually sitting here chuckling at how bad it is.

    No idea what the site looks like as it's only supports Chrome. :\

    I really, really hate articles on news sites where they make a list about some contrived subject and Vox has two on the front page already!

    "11 book series to satisfy your Game of Thrones cravings" "11 board games you should be playing as an adult"

    Does anyone else really hate this type of article?

    It makes the publication seem cheap and lazy and compares them in my mind with Upworthy or other sites which live or die by headlines alone.
