thanks,

it is a bit strange, but when opening Google Drive from within Eviews, it shows files that I deleted from Google Drive weeks ago. Compare the pictures:

Maybe this is a related issue?

That is correct. Google drive permits files with the same name. 'Deleting'' doesnt actually delete it. It tags the file as hidden. EViews however cannot differentiate between hidden and non-hidden files

EViews has issues with files of the same name. We are working on that as well but it wont be in the next patch.
