List all Google Drive Files and Folders

With Google Scripts you can generate a Google Drive Tree with all the files and folders (and sub-folders). You can either start with the root (main) folder or specify a folder name – this is helpful when you have tons of files in your Google Drive and retrieving the entire list can cause the script to time out.

/* Change the FOLDER NAME to generate tree for any specify folder */

function generateFolderTree() {
  try {
    // If you want a tree of any sub folder
    //var parent = DriveApp.getFoldersByName("FOLDER_NAME").next();
    // If you want to search from the top (root) folder
    var parentFolder = DriveApp.getRootFolder();
  } catch (e) {

function getChildFolders(parent) {
  var childFolders = parent.getFolders();
  while (childFolders.hasNext()) {
    var childFolder =;
    Logger.log("Folder Name: " + childFolder.getName());
    Logger.log("Folder URL:  " + childFolder.getUrl());
    var files = childFolder.getFiles();
    while (files.hasNext()) {
      // Print list of files inside the folder
    // Recursive call for any sub-folders
