Overview
Google Drive Permissions Auditor scans all the files and folders in your Google Drive and prepares an audit report detailing who has shared access to your file in Google Drive and what level of permissions they have.

You get to know about the file's MIME type, the size of the file (handy if you are running out  of storage space in Drive), the kind of access other users have on your files, the full path of the file in your Google Drive and the list of Google Accounts that have access to your files. You can click the file name in the privacy report to view or open the corresponding file in your Drive.

To get started, go to the Add-ons menu, choose Drive Permissions Auditor and then choose Start Audit. 

The add-on is free but it will only scan the access permissions of ~200 files in your Google Drive. If you would like to audit every single file in the Drive, please upgrade to premium from https://gum.co/GA06

The Drive Auditor add-on is an essential security add-on for Google Drive as it will help you know if any important files and documents have been inadvertently shared outside your Google account or your Google Apps domain.

The auditor scans all files but you an use the search operator of the Google Drive API to limit your search to files that meet certain criteria. For instance, the following search query will only scan Google Spreadsheets that are owned by you.

"me" in owners and mimeType = 'application/vnd.google-apps.spreadsheet'

The 200 file limit is too small, at least one suggested query example did not work, no way to check folder permissions that I could see, no way to limit search to a folder, price for upgrade way too high, and comments here that author unresponsive to email, makes this unusable

Only been able to try sample tool and seems to do what it says. However, repeated emails sent to developer before I purchase the domain version have been ignored. If this is how they treat potential customers looking to purchase the most expensive licence then I'd be very concerned about their support with customers who have already given them their cash.

Don't install this add on!!!! There is NO REMOVE button in its 'Manage' menu. So you have no choice either to have it around forever or pay the fee.

To remove it, open any Google Spreadsheet and look for "Manage add-ons... under the Add-ons menu.

Awesome addon. Would be nice to go in the spreadsheet and click on RE-PARSE my drive and give it another go.

slow, even on a workstation. if it had a GUI for easier command use..then $30..but since this is VERY VERY simple and has few features.. maybe $10 , but no way this is worth $30. This just shows google they have holes in their systems and that people NEED better tools!

Very good script, however the price is prohibitive for a script I'll use probably only once. I would have payed 10$ for it, but definitively not 30$, so I won't buy it.

Only have used the 'Try' version, as I have not needed the 'Buy' version, but it did what I needed it to do.
