googledrive (v.1.0.1) returns 404 on some files

Hello everyone,

I am using R 3.6.3 on Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 and googledrive version 1.0.1

I am downloading data from this open google drive folder with about 3k files:

if you add it to a google account of yours you can see that it has troubles in retrieving some data (not all):


s2012 <- drive_ls(path = "CSV Stazione_Parametro_AnnoMese", pattern = paste0("storico_2012"))
drive_download(file = as_id(s2012$id[1]))

Which returns:

Error: Client error: (404) Not Found
  *       domain: global
  *       reason: notFound
  *      message: File not found: 0B-owdnU_9_lpY0otY3FYaF9nOG8.
  * locationType: parameter
  *     location: fileId
Run `rlang::last_error()` to see where the error occurred.

Note that the tibble of drive_ls is:

# … with 191 more rows

Note that it perfectly works for other files in the same folder, e.g.:

s2020 <- drive_ls(path = "CSV Stazione_Parametro_AnnoMese", pattern = paste0("storico_2020"))
drive_download(file = as_id(s2020$id[1]))

Any hint?

A question aside: googledrive sometimes struggles to find all files available based a specific pattern, i.e. it has be run multiple times to find them all. I guess it is normal, isn't it?
