Data Studio file is unreadable in Google Drive Windows app

Hi,

I have a challenge with Data Studio files in the Google Drive Windows app. It seems like Drive doesn't recognize the Data Studio files, and moving these files in Windows will make them unreadable by Data Studio later on. Does anybody know a workaround or a way to get the files to work again? 

 

Steps to recreate the issue:

1) Create a report in Data Studio

2) Using your Google Drive app on Windows, move around the file your just created; e.g. move it into a new folder

3) Go to drive.google.com and look for the file in that folder - Notice the file can no longer be opened or recognized by Data Studio. The file has become a Binary File. 

 

That's the issue. Moving a file shouldn't make it unreadable, but it does in this case. 

 

Let me know if you have any thoughts. 

 

Thanks,

Zee
