Removing unsolicited emails and senders from Google drive is a must. Block them is the right thing to do. Doing so will stop them from accessing the content in the future and remove all present files you have with the individual. The person can still access anything they’ve been given access to in previous blocks, but not any new ones after this point. Users can manage who they’ve blocked by visiting the blocklist on your Google Account.

This is a very simple feature, but if you’ve been targeted by spam in Google Drive, it’s a very nice thing to know about. For now, it is for a free and decent solution to clear your account of spam. Considering the account offers just 15 GB this may come in handy.
