Add a File or Folder into different locations

A native Google Drive feature allows you to add the same file to multiple folders in Google Drive without copying it.

This Google Drive feature is limited when files are managed by AODocs:
- It is  not possible to add a file or folder in more than one location into AODocs, whether it is into the same library or different ones.
- A same file or folder can be stored in only one AODocs Folder and any Google Drive folders you want.

There are three methods to add a file or folder into another location:

  • Shift + Z
  1. Select your file or folder.
  2. Hold Shift + Z.
  3. Choose your destination folder.
  4. Click on the “Add here” button.


  • Right Click > Move + CTRL
  1. Right click on your file or folder.
  2. Click on Move to.
  3. Hold CTRL.
  4. Choose your destination folder.
  5. Click on the “Add here” button.

  • Drag + CTRL + Drop
  1. Drag your file or folder
  2. Press CTRL
  3. Drop it into your destination folder

Note: Adding a file or folder into another location is different from:
- Moving a file or folder : It will remove the file or folder from the initial location (Right click + Move to or just drag and drop)
- Copy pasting a file or folder : It will create another a file or folder, similar to the initial one (Right click + Make a copy)
