Google Drive Node outputs deleted files and duplicates

Describe the issue/error/question

Google Drive node is outputting files that have been deleted from that folder and sometimes it’s duplicates. Tried with new files, another Google Drive node, and force reload - doesn’t work.

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share the workflow

Hi @pooria

Not sure if this will do the trick as I am not experienced with this API. But it seems there is a property which you might be able to set. Try setting this and see what happens.

@BramKn thanks for replying.

I don’t see that option neither in Google Drive node or trigger one. Can you let me know where to add that please?

Hi @pooria
Under options in the google drive node.

edit: Not sure what the difference is between properties & APP properties. You can try them both and see what it does.

This is what I see

Whoops, There is different options for different operations. I was not on the correct operation.
try this:

If you are using the query string, there is an example you can use.

Files that contain the text “important” and in the trash

fullText contains 'important' and trashed = true
