I am running MacOS 10.14.
Using Mountain Duck, I have my google drive successfully mounted at '/Users//mnt/GoogleDrive/' on my local computer.
I am able to browse and access the files to move them around and view them.
However, when I am running a program (a python script) that needs to create a symlink from one folder in my google drive to another folder in the google drive, I get a "permission denied" error.

os.symlink(src, dst)
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Users/kperks/mnt/GoogleDrive/GoogleDrive/Team Drives/PerksLab_DLC/Videos_Gnathonemus/Basler_acA1300-200um__23511574__20201122_121429759.avi' -> '/Users/kperks/mnt/GoogleDrive/GoogleDrive/Team Drives/PerksLab_DLC/DLC_projects/TestSharing-LAB-2020-11-23/videos/Basler_acA1300-200um__23511574__20201122_121429759.avi'

I tried changing permissions on the mounted drive so that "everyone" rather then just my username has read/write by going into the finder "Info" and changing permissions on the mounted drive recursively. ls -la confirmed that permissions had been changed on the file above that a symlink was attempted on.

Thank you for your help.

We do not currently support creating symbolic links with a volume backed by Google Drive. While this could be mapped using shortcuts we do not currently have any plan to implement.
