  • clone :download file/folder from drive using sharing link or file ID and get it linked
  • add_remote :upload existing local file to drive and get it linked
  • rm :remove particular file or folder
  • ls :list put all the files present in the drive of equivalent current directory
  • status :list changes made to local files since last pull or pull
  • pull :get latest changes from drive to local files
  • push :push the changes made in remote to drive
