Can the origin of a google doc on a shared gdrive be traced?

By Matpat22222 ·
So at the place that I work, we have a shared google drive account between about 200 or so other people. Its basically just to have a place where we can all store any files that we may feel can help out the rest of our colleages such as pdfs and spreadsheets. A couple of weeks ago it was brought to the attention of the boss that there had been a google doc created that contained some very sensitive info on it and a full out manhunt was made for the IT guys to find out who created the google doc on this shared gmail account. My question is if it is even possible for them to track down who this person(s) is? Keep in mind everyone here uses their own personal laptop connected to the company network which we had to register our laptops on.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered.
