The personal Google Drive connector is no longer available. No new collections can be created for personal Google Drive accounts. However, existing collections will continue working as expected. If you want to collect from enterprise-level Google Drive accounts, you can use our Google Workspace connector.
Onna integrates with Google Drive's API to extract all related data and metadata from files stored on Google Drive. Additionally, Onna offers an enterprise sync option for companies using Google Workspace as an organization, whereby the organization's account administrator can connect all the Google Drive accounts across the company under a centralized repository.
Note: Onna only supports business and enterprise Gmail accounts when configuring Google connectors with the platform. Personal or consumer accounts (using gmail.com email addresses) are not supported by Onna.

What are your sync modes?
One-time is a one-way sync that collects information only once.
Auto-sync means that Onna will perform a full sync first and keep the data source and Onna in a mirrored sync. Any deletions from the data source will be deleted in Onna, as well.
Auto-sync and Archive mean that Onna will perform a full sync first and will continuously add any new files generated at the data source. The sync type does not delete files deleted from the data source
The synchronization scope currently encompasses first-level or second-level folders, subfolders, and shared folders.
Note: Pay As You Go users and Free Trial users can only create one-time sync datasources. If you would like to upgrade your account for archive collections please contact our customer success team.
All files and metadata can be exported in eDiscovery ready format. Load files are available in a dat, CSV, or custom text file.
