I’m trying to make a Zap which connects Google Drive to AWS S3

 

the main function i want to make is

when someone uploads their files into designated shared drive, Zap automatically detect them and upload to S3

 

but the problem is

when the file is uploaded into designated shared drive, Zap can find a file but mimeType is not correct (it’s supposed to be MP4 format) and the file has no data when S3 upload step

 

anyone know how to solve this problem?

Can’t use GDrive shared drives in Zaps.

Also, you cannot trigger or act upon a folder shared with you, so files added to folders you don't own will not trigger the zap. The connected account must be the owner.
