@Mike  I tried to duplicate your 3rd case.  Are you on Mac OS X? 

if I create a stack, place and img in an adjacent image folder and move to the server ("Chola") in the next room… set the img filename to


it works @brian  ./img/tiger.jpg also works… but really doesn't get us anything… we have to manually enter either way

So from terminal if you do "cd /"  and you look under Volumes… the DriveFileStream is not there?

in this  if I do 

cd /Volumes
I will see  

MyDrive HD
BR Back ups (USB for local Time machine backups)

But "Chola" is a "network store"… I guess I don’t understand the nature of the connection/Mount context to Googles Drive File Stream… how that is different?

At any rate you do seem to have a different, though obviously related issue.

    On "b", I have three machines that I use.  Two of them use Google's Backup
    and Sync service, and the other uses Google's Drive File Stream.  So in for
    two of the machines, the answer is "mostly yes" - the difference is the
    username, as the "Drive" folder is in the user folder.  For the the third,
    the answer is "no", because in that case, the access is treated as a
    network store, i.e. its own drive.
