Google drive plugin for android - Add Google account fails

Post by *rikkied » 2019-09-27, 08:19 UTC

Using TC 2.91 with Google Drive plugin on Pocophone F1 since april 2019.
About 2 weeks ago it was at once not possible to enter my Google drive by using the plugin. Google account is setup to access for TC to Google Drive. I reinstalled the plugin and I only see 2 icons: <Add Google account> and <Settings & privacy>. When clicking on Add Google account nothing seems to happen. When clicking it again, a message pops up: Another operation is running in the background. Wait until it is complete. I waited more than 5 minutes, but no action. Also I tried removing and installing the plugin sometimes, but without succes. Today I tested it on my old phone succesfully , which means that the Google drive account is accessible.

Thanks for your help in advance.

<Add Google account> will not allow you to add a new account - it will only show the account(s) which are configured in Android settings. Did you add a Google account to your device there?

Strange, it works here on 2 devices with Android 9. Please try this:
1. Go to the home folder
2. Go to "Installed apps"
3. Long tap on "Totalcmd-Drive"
4. Choose "Properties"
5. Click on "Permissions"
6. Allow access to "Contacts"
