When creating a Data Set on a Google Drive Connection, see an incomplete list of files and folders, or see no files and folders.  For example:-

1. Create a (DV) Connection to Google Drive and save the Connection.

2. Click on the Connection to create a Data Set and see no error is thrown; but see no files (spreadsheets) to select and no folders (directories) to browse.  Or, see only a few files / folders, and not all files / folders as expected based on what is seen when browsing in Google Drive directly.  

3. In Google Drive, create a new folder / file, or copy an existing folder / file.

4. Click on the Connection (again) to create a Data Set and now see the newly touched folder / file in the Data Set editor.

5. After some time passes, during which there is activity (new files uploaded / edited, etc.) in Google Drive, click on the Connection to create a Data Set, and now see the folder / file in #4 is no longer listed.
