    Is there any way to follow your process exactly, except I don’t want the “other person” to be able to edit my files that I am storing on his Google Drive (I want him to have view only privileges). Is this possible?

    In my experience, this information is false:

    “Don’t worry all the files you shared in the folder will only be stored in the other persons account storage.
    Your Google drive storage space will not be affected.”

    Uploads count towards the file owners storage, not those who own the folder itself.

      yeah.. I have also experienced this that the uploads that I did in the shared folder counted as my drive storage.

    Very misleading the files that are uploaded to the shared folder ARE still counted as space on the drive of and owned by the person who did the uploading. They are not stored in the account to which they were uploaded.

    the article is wrong. You can access other shared storage but when you upload it to their account the files occupy space in owners account instead of another account.

    Awesome! Thanks for the info.

    This is incorrect. If you upload files into a shared folder, it still counts towards your own quota.
