Google Shared Drive is for groups of people with Gmail addresses (corporate or personal). Public folder or limited access link-sharing of folders and files in Shared Drives are possible as with personal Google Drive. Moving files is done in bundles of files, not by folder. Google Drive for desktop works for Shared Drives like individual Google Drive for read/write access. Google Shared Drives and personal Google Drive can be synced with rclone, which is especially handy for HPC and cloud computing. If using Windows Subsystem for Linux, keep the files on the native Windows filesystem.
