You must first configure file system access through Web Client, through the "File System" option menu, so that you can work on this file system as if it were your local directory environment.

File manipulation within Google Drive is done the same way as file manipulation on the local system, and it is possible after obtaining the established connection to manipulate the files, writing, deleting, among other actions.
